I’m watching 12 Years a Slave for the first time. I’d love to use this as a teaching tool in my classroom, but definitely will never be able to show it completely because of the language and extreme nudity. Could use clips of it though to teach about slavery in America during the 1800s. I really think they did an EXCELLENT job depicting what a slave went through during this time period. I highly recommend it to anyone. Just be careful if you are to watch this with children as there is a lot of nudity at the beginning of it.
