"The Children's March" tells the story of how the young people of Birmingham, Alabama, braved fire hoses and police dogs in 1963 and brought segregation to its knees. Their heroism complements discussions about the ability of today's young people to be catalysts for positive social change.

"The Children's March" kit includes:

  • A 40-minute teachers' edition of the Academy Award-winning documentary film, available in VHS or DVD format, with closed-captioning; and
  • A teacher's guide with 9 standards-based lesson plans for social studies, language arts and music classrooms.

Produced by Teaching Tolerance in association with HBO.

"Definitely Academy Award material! I was in tears at the end, along with some of the students. ... This is best civil rights documentary I've ever used." - Pennsylvania teacher
