This documentary is great visual for World History or cultural studies courses that are teaching West African Societies . The video notes will allow students to follow along and remain engaged as they take in valuable content. This can also be given as a homework assignment where students can view the film at home or on YouTube and turn in video notes the next day. This assignment also speaks to point of view and provides an alternative source for those studying Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
