The assignment you are asked to do below will familiarize you with the events of Selma, Alabama in 1965.
Go here for PDF copy of Mr. Wood’s 2003 tour through the Southern Civil Rights sights. It provides a story not only of Selma, but other pertinent people and places along the way. The Selma story however, is significant in that it brings the idea of Repeat Photography to the scene.
As you read you have two written assignments. One consists of placing the numeral of the repeat photograph onto the map of Selma, Alabama at what you think is the correct location. Do your best – not every single photograph can be found. I have hard copies of the map in class or go here for a PDF copy of the map.
Secondly, take the assignment of People, Places, Things, and based on the above account, describe the topic in your own words. Do not merely go to the Internet and research the individual. If you do so, you will not pass the assignment. I wrote the above account. It is important for our study of Selma, that you read it. The best way to show me that you have read it is to talk about these topics within the context of the paper. That doesn’t mean go to Wikipedia and define the issue. It means, read the account and then define it through the lens of that specific reading. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
