Civil Rights Movement: Questions to Ponder


Dear Class,

As we dive into the Civil Rights Movement, some overall discussion questions you should think about could be the following:

  1. How does the author’s voice and/or tone reflect the ideas in their writing?
  2. Is this writing situational (i.e. only pertains to a certain event from the Civil Rights Movement, or the era in general), or is the writing universal (i.e. is it timeless, can it be pertained to today)?
  3. What does this writing reveal about the past and the present in terms of racism, discrimination, censorship, or freedom of speech?
