"HUD Fair Housing Public Service Announcement"

"Linguistic Discrimination in School African American English"
Note: The audio is a little out of sync on this YouTube video, but the content is informative.

"21 Accents"

If you have an interest in acting and accents, check out Accents: A Manual for Actors- Revised and Expanded Edition

Speaking of acting and accents...
"Hugh Laurie: the British accent vs the American"
