These videos and support materials explore the intense division experienced by those who testified before and blacklisted by HUAC during the Cold War, focusing on the testimony of Elia Kazan. The videos are from American Masters None Without Sin. Using video, text, and text-dependent discussion questions, students will better understand the public investigation in allegations of Communist activity in the US during the early years of the Cold War.
Note: It may be helpful to show your class the HUAC and Hollywood resource alongside this video.
