I have chosen the closing argument scene from “A Time to Kill” where Matthew Macohnoey’s character tells a very descriptive story of the rape and attempted murder of a young African American girl. Every time I watch this movie I still get emotional watching this scene. I think this scene is a great tool for educators who promote social justice when it comes to the Social Studies curriculum. It breaks down barriers of white vs. black and forces the person to look pass race and really feel empathy for the little girl in that situation.
