The Eyes on the Prize documentary is fantastic. The Bill of Rights Institute is a great resource. I also use a movie called Separate but Equal that is historically accurate and very entertaining. The only problem is it is a very long film.

I like to go more in depth on the stories of Emmitt Toll and Claudette Colvin. They are really engaging for my students since they're both teenagers as well. Thinking about these events from the point of view of another teenager usually hits them pretty hard.

Show them the protest scenes from Forrest Gump, from when he shows up at the rally to when Jenny gets on the bus. It really shows the scope of the protests and can lead into discussions about CR in general.

The biggest mistake I made in crypto last year was selling all my alts at the btc flash dip (@~11000). If I kept all my alts, I would have made 10x of my overall portfolio (and retired). I got back into this year and made some good profit- but lessons learnt. Don't be weak.
