This document has been perfectly formatted to fit on one paper (two pages, front and back) for easy printing.
Countless historical references are made in the film, and 50 of them are provided on this handout (listed in order of appearance). The handout provides background information on the film, as well as on the various historical subjects, and then asks students to answer questions regarding these subjects.
This could be completed as a class before the film, together while watching the film, for homework, or for extra credit.
Topics include: segregation, the Black Panthers, anti-war protests, Vietnam, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, various Cold War presidents, and much, much more. Enjoy!
