Letting them read the book is okay I guess, as long as they are allowed to question things that were written in that book. Showing them movies is just dumb and lazy.

As a kid I had to watch that stupid movie Schinlder's List in school, and it was presented to me as a true story. Later on I found out that it was a complete fraud.

"Schindler's List," is based upon a novel, that is to say, a work of fiction, titled in its first edition, "Schindler's Ark," by the Australian writer Thomas Keneally.

The BOOK is by Solomon Northrup. The movie is based on the book. While I can't be sure about Attai's meaning-- he did say the book is more demanding that the movie, which is hardly surprising--and he seemed to also suggest that Northrup's memoir should be required reading. Unfortuntatlely, most people don't read or settle for light entertainment.(An article read in the 1980s indicated that over 90% of all reading by Americans is done by less than 10% of the population)
I suppose for nonreaders the movie is the next best thing.

But I also prefer books. I think books of substance should be required reading well before the college level

The book is even stronger and goes deeper than the movie, which is a good movie by the way and acclaimed here by critics too.

Moreover the book, recently republished, was fact checked at the time already and Solomon Northup is just telling the infamous, horrible truth upon Old South.
He is so kind as to find some of us white folks to be nice to him.

An interesting thing the movie is not underlining : it took NINE years to him to get a piece of paper in order to write a first letter he was forced to burn before his brutal and sadistic master could find it after having been betrayed by ... a white guy.

One thing that shows Amerikkka is still here from 1853 to 2014 : in the trial of his abuser, the slave trader Burch (or Birch), the judge in the DC court refused that he could speak on his own abduction and beatings and illegal detention. Because of a "man of color" could then not be heard in a case involving any white person !
Then you remember the Trayvon Martin case 150 years later ...

Interestingly enough, the person editing the new edition of Solomon Northrup's memoir will be speaking at Enoch Pratt this Thursday.
Also, check your email. Ever hear of George Jackson or the book called SOLEDAD BROTHER? I sent you some info, but not in this place.

This from a woman who thinks that Youtube clips, dating site ads and other such trivia constitutes scholarly evidence for her shallow comprehension of social reality.

I can honestly say I'm very happy to have light olive skin, bright green eyes and my own natural 25" blonde curly hair.

The real world is certainly the real world, but it takes someone with greater mental stability and capacity for critical analysis than T-Bos, to discern anything of substance about the world.

Didn't you one time say that "racism" should be officially classified as a mental disorder?
No, I didn't say racism should be dismissed. But it is, among other things, a mental illness. A form of madness. But it is too dangerous to be lightly dismissed. Hitler proved that.
