Teaching Tolerance is offering a free documentary on the Selma-to-Montgomery march — a perfect follow-up to watching the Oscar-nominated “Selma” film.

The free-to-teachers kit includes:

  • The documentary, Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot (40 minutes);
  • viewer’s guide to help you plan how you’ll teach about the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and voting issues today;
  • A timeline of activities and events leading up to and following the marches;
  • A map of Alabama illustrated with locations significant to the voting rights struggle.

I know I’m not alone in using great resources, including free films, from Teaching Tolerance often over the years…
