Files:

This video would be great for a lesson during Black History Month and/or after other conversations about culture and race. The class can discuss the pros and cons of choosing an African-American princess, and what that might mean to different groups of people. This can lead to a discussion on the representation of different races in other media, including books, television shows, movies, etc.
