Build connections between one of the prompts below and the American Civil Rights Movement  

1.     What were the effects of the media on the American Civil Rights movement, 1955-1968? For the first time in American history, violence was televised, bringing its realities into the homes of citizens, particularly in the North. Consider especially issues of trust and responsibility between politicians and American society, as well as society’s response to racism and violence in the South.   

2.     Black History Month began as Negro History Week in 1926. Consider whether Black History Month upholds the same purpose from which it originates, and whether celebrations which focus on underrepresented groups (Women’s History Week, Hispanic Heritage Month, etcetera) have improved or regressed the ways Americans consider race, ethnicity, civil rights and culture. Where do we go from here?   

3.     African American icons have always been present in the Africa-American community; people like Frederick Douglass, W. E. B. DuBois, Mary McCloud Bethune, Booker T. Washington, Jackie Robinson, Mae Jemison, Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, Lorraine Hansberry , among many others, come to mind. How have the icons of the African-American community shaped and influenced identity and civil rights in America? What ties these icons together, and who is emerging as influential, iconic figures in the 21st century? What traits do emerging African-American icons share with their predecessors? 

  

**Historical and scholarly sources include sources found in the library or library databases 

  

Students will be invited to read their prize winning essays at the African-American Read-In
on February 25, 11-12:05 in the LSC Craft Room
