While the end of the Civil War marked the end of slavery with the Thirteenth Amendment, the questions of the Reconstruction remain unanswered today. Slavery first became a matter of debate at the Constitutional Convention. Today, we still grapple with its legacy. An informative video resource explores the roots of these questions and the Thirteenth Amendment.
- Create discussion questions to ask learners where they see the effects of slavery and the Thirteenth Amendment today
- Have scholars research current questions around the Thirteenth Amendment, such as mass incarceration
- Video is a broad overview of history rather than a deep dive into the Reconstruction Amendments
- Video is adaptable to a variety of classroom settings, as it does not presume a background in history
- Engaging narrator, graphics, and images stimulate individuals' interest
