Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White
Take an illuminating tour through the religious and moral heritage of black Americans! Packed with over 2 1/2 hours of revolutionary material, this DVD details the rich legacies, traditions, and political history of black America. In addition, groundbreaking footage and stories uncovered by Christian historian David Barton dig deeper into the contributions of an often overlooked culture.
This DVD can be purchased individually or as part of The American Heritage Collection: Seven DVD Set that covers the past 400 years of America's godly heritage, shedding light on everything from the Bible's impact on America and the religious roots of education to a Christian's role in civil government and the keys to reestablishing a moral political system.
Runtime: 118 min.
This DVD pays respect to our black leaders over the years and also clearly reveals what many of them went through including African American citizens. A few graphic photos of various lynchings are seen, mostly briefly, and a re-enactment is seen in the dark. For this reason the DVD is the only one of the series of seven which we are recommending for ages twelve and above.
Black patriots who served with George Washington, Prince Whipple and Oliver Cramwell, are featured in a famous painting. The Dred Scott case is examined and also how different political parties handled these civil rights issues. How our American presidents reacted to these issues is also featured in the DVD. The historical facts are many and interesting.
We highly recommend this DVD as a great teaching tool and a permanent record of the civil rights issues and historical documents of our nation's past. We are pleased to award it our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal.
