In this video from Mercy Street, learn about the African American experience during the Civil War through the eyes of Belinda Gibson. Students learn of Belinda’s life-long love, her dreams of having a family, explore reasons she kept this a secret from the Green family, and watch her character evolve as she gains more autonomy from the Green household.
Support materials are available below, including discussion questions, teaching tips, and a handout. For more resources from Mercy Street, check out the collection page.
