Exploring Library Databases: American History in Video

One of the most “dramatic” databases the library offers is American History in Video. Covering a wide range of topics and thousands of videos, this database lets you experience–at home or in the classroom–notable historic moments, either in real time or on film. Included are early newsreels from United and Universal Newsreel, award-winning documentaries, dramatic reenactments, and engaging analysis from prominent scholars and experts. Transcripts accompany the video.

Two videos I would like to feature are: “When Castro Seized the Hilton” and “Frantz Fanon’s: Black Skin, White Mask.”
