I Would Rather Die Standing Than Live on My Knees Or R-E-S-P-E-C-T [More Than] Just A Little Bit
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Look at Changing Currents - Blacks, Women and Indians - Static and Status 1875-1925 While African Americans, Women, and Native Americans are recognized groups in contemporary American society, this has not always been the case. Social, political, and economic forces between 1875 and 1925 laid the groundwork for change in how these groups were viewed as well as in how they viewed themselves. By recognizing the roadblocks and understanding the struggles that America's three oldest minorities were subjected to, students will understand the quest for equality and gain respect for Diversity. This study will also provide students the opportunity to apply rhetorical analysis skills for an enriched understanding of this era.
