I am showing this PBS documentary in both my Intro to Law, and Criminal Law classes. I took “Race, Gender and Law” with Dr. Parker at Brockport last fall, where we discussed much of what is covered here. Prior to taking that class, I was fairly ignorant to much of this.
My students have been very engaged with this. I tried showing it to my 7th graders, and like everything I try to do with them, it fell flat on its face.
You can watch the film in its entirety HERE.
