We've just made it easier for you to access streaming video through a new service called Kanopy. Kanopy's extensive offerings include thousands of award-winning documentaries, educational and training films, and theatrical releases. The collection includes a number of leading producers, such as the Criterion Collection, PBS, Kino Lorber, New Day Films, The Great Courses, California Newsreel, and hundreds more.

You can search films by subject, filmmaker, and year. You can create playlists and clips. You can even share videos on social media. Best of all, the makers of Kanopy constantly update the homepage with collections of films relevant to current events. For example, this month Kanopy is highlighting films about the African American experience and the history of race in America.

We'd like to recommend "Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People," a film that explores the role of photography in shaping the identity, aspirations and social emergence of African Americans.
