In the next few class sessions of Texas History we will be looking at the 1960s. Specifically, we will be looking at the Civil Rights Movement. To supplement this topic I have decided to show the movie Selma. This movie is PG-13 and requires a permission slip in order for the students to view it. Attached is the permission slip with more information on the film and its rating. We are planning on viewing this film on May 15th through the 19th so permission slips need to be returned by May 10th.
