Help Channel

After finding this amazing documentary portrait of James Baldwin from 1963, "Take This Hammer," I wanted to check out more of the DIVA website, which describes itself as a "web-based tool for storing, sharing, collaborating over, and contextualizing files and other content" for "faculty and staff" of San Francisco State, although it is also clearly open to others interested in fair use content for teaching and learning in higher education.

Critical Commons is more searchable, better curated, and clearer in its free culture politics, but there are also useful materials for those who want to bring a database of footage into the classroom environment easily that features a lot of local public television coverage of the area.
