Doubt is a film adaptation of a 2004 play with the same name by American playwright John Patrick Shanley, who also directed the movie.

It's not an MP3 player. It was a device known as a pocket transistor radio with an earpiece. Such monaural radios were first marketed in the mid 1950s.

Christian-Roman Catholic . The nuns are of the Sisters of Charity.

Since it was the 1960's, people of color were barely accepted anywhere. Donald (Joseph Foster) has no friends and no role models. Mrs Miller (Viola Davis) is just thankful that someone is looking after him, regardless of the circumstances. Plus, she tells Sister Aloysius (Meryl Streep) that he leaves at the end of June to go to high school, so whatever 'relationship' they were having would end at that time.

Since Shanley has a policy of not allowing his plays to be rewritten for the screen, the ending plays out exactly like the play...leaving it up to each viewer to decide.
