Solved: Black Lives Matter and Structural Racism

Choose a current event or issue, and explain how it has been shaped by the history that we studied this semester. (Black lives matter and structural racism) • I want you to demonstrate a real connection between the past and the present. Don’t just point out similarities and say “history repeats itself.” Show me how the past events shape and influence the present. • I recommend choosing a topic that interests you. It really does make the paper much easier. • Really give some thought to whether you want to approach this by looking backward from a current issue, or bringing a past topic into the present. For example, starting with Black Lives Matter and looking back results in a very different essay from starting with Reconstruction or the Civil Rights Movement and looking forward. • I have a zero tolerance policy for plagiarism. Your work must be your own. Anything your quote must be cited.
