Write a few sentences about one thing you learned from the prep readings, one thing that made the most impact on you

Question

Directions: Read the Prep Readings 1, 2, 3 below. These should take you a total of approximately 20-45 minutes, depending on how fast you read. Then write a few sentences about one thing you learned from the prep readings, one thing that made the most impact on you, or describes one person or event you want to learn more about. There is not a right or wrong answer for this assignment; you just need to show that you read/watched the prep readings/video and reflected on them.

Prep Reading 1 on contemporary terms for a race:

Please read through this note on some terms used for racial descriptions during the Civil Rights era; both of these terms are now considered offensive. (2-minute read) : A note on terms revd.docx

Prep Reading 2 on the Civil Rights era timeline of events: a) Please look at the timeline below to see some necessary context about the history of the Civil Rights Movement; look for the Dred Scott decision (Supreme Court case), Brown vs. Board of Education (Supreme Court case), Montgomery bus boycotts, Civil Rights Act (law), the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a date for Dr. King winning the Nobel Peace Prize:

Prep Reading 3 = (Video) on the Bloody Sunday protest :

If you have not seen news footage of the Civil Rights era, here is one clip to start with. Please be aware, there is some graphic violence in parts of the video; also, the quality is not high resolution (it’s a video of a newsreel from 1965). This footage is from what later became known as “Bloody Sunday” , when peaceful protesters were attacked by law enforcement. Bloody Sunday happened in 1965; the Letter from the Clergymen and Letter From Birmingham Jail was written in 1963, but this footage gives you an idea of what civil rights protesters were frequently confronted with–news footage (9-minute video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cNnG8xfy20

If you want to dig further into the events of Bloody Sunday, you can start here (if you Google the phrase, try “Bloody Sunday 1965”, because an unrelated protest movement in Northern Ireland also has a day that is known as “Bloody Sunday”): http://www.history.com/news/s
