About the Project

Blue Chalk Media was commissioned by the higher education division of Pearson to create video stories that put a human face on key topics explored in its new digital courseware introducing students to the study of sociology.

From race and gender to immigration to electoral politics, the films in this series, dubbed “Pearson Originals,” take the form of short character-led documentaries that highlight subjects who are “living in the news."  

This film features a conversation between two generations of civil rights activists with similar goals but different ideas on how to achieve them.

To create the series, our production team traveled all over the U.S. to capture personal stories while a team of editors worked to cut them into easily digestible short films of 12 minutes or less.

Following delivery, each film was paired with a specific chapter in the courseware to help students connect the patterns studied by sociologists with examples of real people caught in the swirl of social change.
