Is history determined by mere chance, by the impersonal forces of economics and politics? Or can individuals actually shape history by their own choices? When we look at some of the world’s greatest social movements, we can see that the personal efforts of people like Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Lech Walesa, and Nelson Mandela changed the course of history. All of these truly great movers of modern history were inspired by one man: Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The film "Gandhi" starring Ben Kingsley is a phenomenal way for students to learn about the hero of decolonization. Unlike most movie guides, this activity provides students a nice balance of freedom to enjoy the film as well as structure for learning about a single person who moved millions.
