Then write a “mini” history of the lives of African Americans in your chosen year based on what you read in the newspapers. 3-6 pages In doing so, keep in mind the following:

1. You will not be able to write a whole history (everything you read about) as space and time will not necessarily permit this; what are you choosing to focus on and why? 2. What kinds of articles and material are published? Were there common themes or issues that were most concerning to the audiences of that newspaper?3. What can the material tell us about the concerns and interests of African Americans during your period?4. ***For this section of the project you are permitted to use any assigned course materials or lectures to help frame your story or the importance of it to understanding the history of African Americans.
