Choose one of the below for your main post. Respond to at least one student who answered a different question from you. Respond as many times as you wish. Your best two responses will be graded. The answers should come from your textbook, the lectures, videos, and the research you conducted in the APUS Library. The initial post with well referenced facts is due by Wednesday, 11:55 p.m. ET and 2 peer responses are due by Friday, 11:55 p.m. ET.
1.) Who were the Tuskegee Airmen and how did they contribute to WWII? Or -who were the Montford Point Marines and why are they significant? Please don’t choose either part of this question if you addressed it in week four’s military essays.
2.) Was A. Philip Randolph’s March on Washington movement successful? How did it relate to the Double V campaign?
3.) The Great Migration and the Negro Motorist Green Book are intricately related. What is the relationship there and what context can you offer for both?
4.) Paul Robeson is a fascinating figure. Many historians think that he is not widely studied or valued because his detractors made him out to be a controversial figure. What is your assessment? Were his stances communist or anti colonial? Was he an asset to civil rights?
Remember: Generic sources are not acceptable. You have to understand the quality of the source you are using. Sources/citations are not required in the regular forums but they are required in the essays. Your participation posts need to be substantive – show you understand the readings and material for the week. Use Word to edit your work. In the essays, write in character, have two separate sections (as per the instructions) and be specific, refer to the lessons and readings.
