Black History Week 3

From Ferguson to Baltimore: The Fruits of Government Sponsored Segregation  because "[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”


James Baldwin's Letter to My Nephew because its important to "remember that what they believe, as well as what they do and cause you to endure, does not testify to your inferiority, but to their inhumanity and fear." 


Martin Luther King Jr interview by Alex Haley because you should not believe that MLK and other Civil Rights leaders weren't angry. "It was the angriest I have ever been in my life."


The Invisible Women of the Civil Rights Movement because there would've been no movement without women. 


Recy Taylor and Rosa Parks because we dont talk enough about the specific histories carried within the bodies of black women.


Public Opinion Polls of the Civil Rights Movement because its important to know that most Americans did not approve of the now famous Civil Rights Movement.   


1992 LA Riots because police brutality has long been an issue, and we must remember that rioting is the language of the unheard.
