HUM 1020 Week 10
Please choose one episode from the series and watch it. If you are unsure of which episode you want to watch, you can read a synopsis of each episode and download transcripts for each episode at the PBS American Experience website for “Eyes on the Prize: America’s Civil Rights Movement (Links to an external site.).” As you watch, pay attention to the people of the era. Watch what is happening, and think about the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement in this country. If the series captures your attention, and if you have time, feel free to watch more than one episode!
Respond: Having watched one or more episodes of Eyes on the Prize, please consider the following questions: What were the goals of the Civil Rights Movement? How did African Americans use the medium of television in their protests? What was the impact of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and other leaders of the movement? How did they inspire people to follow them? How were their approaches similar and different? How did the Civil Rights Movement inspire other groups to fight for civil rights and self-determination? Did the Civil Rights Movement achieve all of its goals? What are some of the legacies of the Civil Rights Movement for today?
Please write a thoughtful response to these questions, and/or feel free to explore other ideas that you may have related to the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-twentieth century. Your paper should be about one page, double-spaced (around 250-300 words). This is not a research paper, and there is no expectation of further research. I want you to grapple with these ideas yourself, thinking about the historical context of the Civil Rights Movement.
- 250-300 words (approx. one page typed, double-spaced).
- Support any general points you make or attitudes you express with specific reasons and details.
- Organize your thoughts into coherent paragraphs. Use transitions to make the relationships among ideas in the paper clear.
- Edit the paper carefully for errors in grammar, mechanics, punctuation, word use, and spelling.
- Do not quote from the textbook or other sources—use your own words.
- Cite the source of any paraphrased ideas or information.
- You may use Chicago/Turabian, APA, or MLA Style—Choose the one you prefer, and use it consistently and properly.
