Alicia and Sarah talk about the new film The News of the World, based on the book by the same title. They discuss the importance of truth versus sensationalism, the role of language and communication, the messiness of westward expansion and the complicated nature of that part of America’s story, and redemption and healing.
At the end of the discussion, they talk about the things they’ve been reading, watching, and analyzing outside of the classroom.
