Thank you to everyone who returned to permission slips to watch portions of Roots, Glory and Lincoln. In addition, we would like to show an excerpt from the movie Amistad. The portion that we would like show focuses on the courtroom scenes when they are trying to determine which charges will brought against the slaves, whether the slaves are property and the communication between the slaves and their attorney. We will not be showing any of the portions depicting the slaves’ experiences on the La Amistad. We anticipate showing portions of all four movies between March 4 and April 15.  If you have any questions or concerns about this movie, please contact either myself or Ms. Walsh.
