Assignment Overview

History is the process of understanding texts and their contexts. We learn about history through the documents and artifacts left by those who came before us. The historical essays in this course provide the opportunity to analyze a variety of primary source documents in order to engage with the context of key historical figures. This third essay takes us into the debate about the Civil Rights Movement through the lens of a sermon by Martin Luther King, Jr. and an interview with Malcolm X.
