This course has introduced and assessed many noteworthy figures related to the continuing buildup of the United States and its place within the world and globalization during the last 140 years. For this assignment, you will choose an influential civil rights figure from the mid-20th century to the present. Your selection may be taken from speakers or religious, economic, or social leaders. You may not use any U.S. President. This assignment is open to any reform discussed in this course (e.g., creed, race, age, status, or gender).
Prepare an outline communicating that figure’s relevance in today’s modern era. Why and how is this figure important today? This is not a biography. Your argument should highlight how society remembers him or her now.
For this assignment, you will be creating a one-page outline (minimum of 300 words) about your chosen figure. If you choose, this could be used to help write your transcript for the Unit VII assignment described below. Submit your outline in this unit. It is suggested, though not required, that you include potential sources.
The goal of this assignment is to prepare you for the Unit VII assignment.
Here are a few options or you can select someone else that you prefer. This outline will be the person that I’ll have the next order for my Unit VII project.
