Description The 4-5 page paper is a study into American history (Civil War to the present). The assignment is to choose two primary documents from the photographs in the dropbox link below (you may use more documents if you wish)( and make an argument about American history. Use the documents to focus your paper as you explain what the documents tell us about the historical period in which they are from. While you should spend time analyzing the document, it is important to place it into historical context. As you read a document, carefully think about the social, cultural, economic, racial, political, religious, and gender contexts (at least those are relevant) in which it was written. You should include quotes from the documents in the paper since these strengthen your argument and analysis. Have a clear thesis in the introduction with a well-developed argument throughout the paper. You can use any documents you want and analyze them as you wish, but make sure you make your argument with solid historical background. As an example of a paper idea regarding changes in African-American life, you may want to compare Booker T. Washington’s The Atlanta Compromise with Stokely Carmichael, Black Power or Malcolm X’s The Black Revolution Speeches . Some questions to consider in this context: what did 2/28/2019 Writers each individual say and why? What were their goals? How did they view the relationship between AfricanAmericans and whites? Once you have these answers, ask why Carmichael and/or Malcolm differed so greatly from Washington. What happened in American society over time to cause these changes?
