HIS 145 Week 2 Civil Rights Diary


Create a journal entry of 700 to 1,050 words from
the perspective of one of the following 1960s personas:

  • Student at
    the University of Mississippi when James Meredith tried to enroll

  • Witness to
    the assassination of Malcolm X

  • Protestor at
    the Lincoln Memorial who hears King give his "I Have a Dream"

  • A freedom
    rider headed to New Orleans in 1960

  • Store owner
    and witness to the Watts riots in LA

  • African
    American participant in one of the Selma marches in 1965

  • An African
    American supporter and political organizer for Robert Kennedy in 1968

Consider the social, economic,
and political forces at work. For example, if you have chosen to be a student
at the University of Mississippi, describe the court cases that resulted in the
desegregation of the campus.

Ensure that your journal entry
aligns with fact and that all facts are supported by proper citations.

Include two sources other than
your textbook. You may include the videos this week as part of your sources.

Format the text of your journal
entry consistent with APA guidelines.
