From Library Journal:
Award-winning director/filmmaker Ava DuVernay has added resources for classrooms and independent study to her productions. DuVernay’s company ARRAYnow is launching an initiative that will offer free learning guides for students to accompany TV and film productions.
The initiative, ARRAY101, was created in partnership with Participant, a media company “dedicated to entertainment that inspires audiences to engage in positive social change.”
The first set of classroom resources is about DeVernay’s four-part Netflix series, When They See Us, about the five young Black men wrongfully accused of and jailed for a rape in Central Park in 1989. The education materials include a learning companion guide to download and a field study lesson on media bias and data analysis.
