African American history museum
Imagine you work for an African American history museum; you have been given the task of creating a blog for the museum’s website that discusses the formation and continuing development of African American identity.
Write four separate blog entries that highlight an aspect of African American identity for each of the following time periods. For each entry you can focus on a historical person, event, or another facet of these eras that contributed to the formation of African American identity and that you think your readership would find interesting:
• The pre-slavery era
• The era of slavery
• The Civil War and Reconstruction
• From Reconstruction to the present
