Want to do extra credit, but don’t remember what you’re supposed to be doing?
April is Holocaust/Genocide Commemoration/Awareness Month. All extra credit relates to that.
Option 1: Attend the film, Witnessing Darfur: Genocide Emergency, which was shown on Friday April 6 in the Center for Diversity and Unity, attend the discussion and blog about it.
Option 2: Watch one of the movies listed below and blog about it (requirements follow).
All movies are on reserve in the library. All are documentaries except Blood Diamond.
- The Reckoning: the Battle for the International Criminal Court
- The Devil Came on Horseback
- God Grew Tired of Us
- Facing Sudan
- Blood Diamond
(Most are about Africa because I got them for an African History course. I’ll be adding others for next year.)
The blog post: 15 pts
Due date: Thursday, April 19, midnight MDT
- 200-250 words
- Name of movie you saw
- What it had to say about genocide
- I didn’t have this originally, but you should also consider the perspective of the film – whose point of view – an outsider, perpetrator, survivor, victim, etc. and how that affects content
