Week of March 18th

For this week, we’ll start with our usual review of the AmNews. Read (at least) one news — not sports or entertainment — story carefully and report to the class. Here are questions you should ask to think critically:

  • What is the effect on the Black community?
  • How does it affect our work as organizers and how should we/our organizations respond?
  • What solutions can we collectively come up with?
  • Read chapters 2: (“Organization and Ethnic Resources”) and 3 (Social and Cultural Origins of Power) in Amos Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power.

    Also, if you haven’t yet picked out a place to do fieldwork each week, then send me an e-mail immediately, so we can get you placed somewhere since you’ll have to do some work to be able to complete the final projects for the class.
