This is an excellent series with curriculum support. The content resources are cross-curricular in approach (science and social studies) and differentiated for various levels of learners. Julian received his college education at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN, and the documentary prominently speaks to the problems of racism on campus and the later impact DePauw would have in reigniting his career. There are many great themes to discuss in this presentation.
