Thanks to social media, the whole world can instantly become aware of your stance on a particular issue in less than 140 characters. We can join and leave movements while sitting at work. We can repost an infographic while pretending to listen in class. Social media certainly has widespread reach and effect, especially when Black Twitter is involved. When you have a little more time, you can stream films about movements. These seven documentaries depict the lives of people who fought and still fight to gain fairness and equality. Whether it be an individual's struggle for freedom or a nation's fight to improve government, these films will teach you about issues around the world and what ordinary people are doing to fix them.
