After doing readings 1 and 2 and viewing Mississippi’s war (1 hour approx), elaborate on how historical inequalities have a connection to contemporary struggles. In other words, how are contemporary movements such as #BlackLivesMatter or #NoDAPL influenced by the history of the United States? Can you name some of the links and elaborate on them? I am interested in (1) your ability to critically evaluate the readings and the documentary and (2) the links you make between historical institutions such as colonization and slavery and the contemporary problems faced and Native and Black groups.
