1. The Harlem Renaissance: After watching the video posted on Blackboard (i.e. African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, Episode 4) and based on your readings, discuss three aspects (of your choice) of the Harlem Renaissance. Your answer must be informed by the content of the video. Your answer must also contain at least five major names associated with the movement. (Main skills tested: research, summarizing, critical thinking, writing skills)
2. We have a national holiday for Martin Luther King Jr every year. Using the Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X texts/videos posted in Blackboard as well as your knowledge about the two black leaders, discuss why you think we don’t have a similar national day for Malcolm X. Your answer must reflect the content of the texts/videos as posted on Blackboard. (Main skills tested: research, summarizing, critical thinking, leadership, writing skills)
3. Black Lives Matter: using the last three postings in Blackboard (i.e. Black Lives Matter (BLM) & Black Students on U.S. Campuses), (1) summarize the issues raised by this movement; (2) what are your views about this movement? Is it justified? I am interested in how you argue your point (with as many specific names/incidents as you can think of, including George Floyd) (in other words, you won’t lose points because I might not agree with your perspective). What does the BLM tell you about race matters in the United States today? Feel free to add comments about the May 14, 2022, murder of 10 Black people at Tops Friendly Markets on the East Side of Buffalo, NY. (Main skills tested: research, summarizing, critical thinking, writing skills)
4. Marcus Garvey: Watch the Marcus Garvey video again. Write an assessment of his leadership: how/why did he succeed? Why did he fail? What legacy did he leave for people of African descent? (Main skills tested: summarizing, critical thinking, leadership, writing skills.)
5. “Critical Race Theory” has been in the news lately. What is the controversy about? What is critical race theory anyway? (Google the concept and read as much as possible about it.) Suggested length: half a page to one page (or more if you’re so inclined). (Main skills tested: research, summarizing, critical thinking, writing skills)
