ACP PAPER 032119




• Get Yo Ass to Class----remind students that they are paying to be here
and they signed up for it ahead of time. Remind them that despite
what they may have seen on FOX NEWS or heard from Rush
Limbaugh, GOVERNMENT is not some invisible entity floating in outer
space. GOVERNMENT is use and me and flesh and blood people, as
imperfect as it is. POLITICS is an important struggle to decide who
gets what, when, and how.


• The chapter we will discuss deals with Civil Rights. I will look at some
of the historical issues that have always faced people of color in the
United States. As a BRIDGE in, I will show a video featuring comedian
Dave Chappelle and personality Wayne Brady. I will ask for feedback
on the details of that video.



• Trace the legal developments and social movements that expanded
civil rights.

• Describe how different groups have fought for and won protection of
their civil rights.

• Contrast arguments for and against affirmative action.


• I will discuss recent trends with regards to the criminal justice system.
I will ask if students know anything about the criminalization issues
with special emphasis on African American males. I will ask if they
think African Americans commit more crimes than whites because it
is based on African American “cultural values,” or are whites and
people or color treated differently by the criminal justice system.


• We will go over the basic chapter PowerPoint presentation. I will give
three early twentieth century examples of how African Americans
started to fight against racial discrimination in the Jim Crow era. I will
use examples set by Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Dubois, and
Marcus Garvey. I will give examples of how their philosophies and
strategies carried on into the future.



• Two minute paper questions:

• What was the most important thing you learned during this class

• What important question remains unanswered?


• Students will come away from the class with the knowledge that
many of the things African Americans struggle with today are not
new, and that people have come before them who have tried to
tackle those issues. The opening video will leave a question as to can
perception change anything? Students may come away with a
conclusion that African Americans still have miles to go as far as
making progress, and the overall society still has miles to go as well,
but it is still possible to get there.
