NEW RELEASE - Outside the Box from izzit.org

NEW RELEASE

Don’t ask me what I am. Ask me who I am.

Imagine trying to register your child for school and being forced to reduce a complex racial ancestry to one checkbox… 

Eli Steele just wants to register his son Jack for kindergarten. He has no idea the journey this will begin, or the questions it will lead to. 

They have a complex family history. Son of slaves. Daughter of the revolution. Holocaust survivors. Interracial marriage pioneers in an era of segregation and discrimination. 

Jack and his younger sister June have an even more complicated ancestry when you consider their mother’s heritage – a Mormon settler and Mexican immigrant. 

So when Eli is required to reduce Jack to a single checkmark in front of a race box…it doesn’t sit well with him. 

Explore Eli, Jack, and June’s powerful story of individuality vs. group identity. 

Do you fit inside a box? 

Adapted from the award-winning documentary, How Jack Became Black.

NEW RELEASE - Delaying World War II from izzit.org

NEW RELEASE


They thought appeasement could prevent another world war.

They were wrong.

Following World War I, many nations were understandably anxious to avoid another world war.

That’s why Great Britain celebrated the Munich Agreement, which gave Hitler a large section of Czechoslovakia – which hadn’t even been invited to the negotiating table, though they were the sacrificial lamb.

Appeasement seemed like the answer to the rest of the world’s prayers to avoid war.

Was it? Or had they merely kicked the can down the road a bit further? Who warned them that the Munich Agreement was likely a mistake?

What might have happened if the world had confronted Hitler earlier?

New Release....No More Skinny Sheep




Baaa-dd idea?



If the government paid you per head of sheep in your pasture, how many sheep would you put in it? More than you should? More than was healthy or environmentally sound?

In New Zealand, where agriculture is a main source of income, farmers used to get 30% of their income from government subsidies. That all changed in the mid-1980s, when the subsidies were abolished. How did farmers manage? How did they become so competitive on the global market today?

Find out how New Zealand’s sheep went from skinny to healthy!
