Thank you! My kids are currently mystified by great characters like --young OLAUDAH EQUIANO and the story of his kidnapping and autobiography...
--young inventor, abolitionist and "millionaire" JAMES FORTEN http://gardenofpraise.com/ibdfort.htm
--and ANTHONY JOHNSON, a FREE African-American who owned property in Virginia in the early 1600s
The real-life stories of these characters make amazing kid documentaries! This year students kept the same amount of narration, but they put less text on each frame so the Ken Burns-esque zooms and pans are readily apparent. They are really proud of their work!
