        Should Black History Be: More Than a Month? | Educator Guide

        African American filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman embarks on a cross-country campagin to examine what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in America. Classrooms can use the guide without watching the entire film, by watching the film clips and discussing the synopsis. "Whose History" provides a one- to three-day lesson plan designed to further students' understanding of the film and to explore the question of how different cultural groups are acknowledged in American history, media, and culture.
