I think that if you are an educator, parent, or just like history you will love this video.
If you are an African-American parent, teacher, etc. and want to give your children, students, etc. a sense of history (their history) then this would be a great gift. In today's society when we take things like voting or simply the place where we sit on the bus for granted, we can look back and really appreciate what the leaders of the Civil Rights Movements have done for us.
I think that this video shows that the struggles that African-American's went through to gain the simpliest freedoms show that one month just isn't enough. That Black History should be taught all year around.
