We’ll start the class with Wilson and then go to the Amsterdam News. Have your paper copy of the April 16-22 edition (“Hillary’s In!” front cover) with you.

Read Chapter 21 (“Nation Within a Nation”) in Amos Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power slowly and carefully. This week, I want to have short individual meetings with everyone to see how fieldwork is going. We’ll do that at the end of class.

As a reminder, download the assignments for the final paper and presentation from the Assignments page if you didn’t get them. Start looking at your fieldwork and begin taking notes. Begin reflecting on your experiences and organizing ideas.
