From Selma to Montgomery: An introduction to the 1965 marches
by Katie Gould, PBS NewsHour Teacher Resource Producer
Students read a one-page overview of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery Marches and watch three video clips (about a minute each) from the film Selma.
Students watch three videos (about 2.5 minutes each), analyze the content and answer critical thinking questions.
Students watch an interview with Selma director Ava DuVernay and watch a PBS NewsHour segment, “High Court Strikes Down Key Provision of Voting Rights Act.” Each clip is about 10 minutes.
