Rage Against The Machine have recently shared a short documentary detailing the grim American history that influenced their 1999 track "Killing in the Name."
The 15 minute doco, called "Killing in Thy Name", follows a teacher educating a group of students about the history of racial and social oppression in America.
An intro to the doco reads:
“The following is a document of true events. Our aim is for this piece to be a fire escape from the fiction known as whiteness and a spring for discovery. Remember, the children are always watching."
Have a watch up top.
