History: The Big H

Private eye Clio Malarkey doesn’t like history much. But when a client hires him to investigate “how things got to be the way they are,” he discovers the importance of learning U.S. history as well as the hazards of interpreting it. In the guise of a film-noir detective story, The Big H questions some of the ways history is taught, revealing working people’s role in shaping the nation’s past. (Length: 26 minutes)
