This emotionally charged documentary offers a painstaking look at how race and Florida law played a role in the death of Jordan Davis and its continued impact on the African-American community. Adding to the conversation are some of the parallels drawn between this case and the high-profile death of Trayvon Martin, as well as conversations that underscore prevailing racial prejudices in America.

Woven throughout the poignant moments in 3 1/2 Minutes, Ten Bullets are troubling excerpts of the unremorseful Dunn's own words; his views compared to that of Davis' family would be a great place to start in opening a conversation about racial bias with your teens.
