Your Assignment

Welcome! This research guide was created for students in Prof. Elias' Fall 2023 Eng. 101 class.

This guide is a customized resource for this assignment.

Your assignment is to write a 5-7 page research paper on the topic "Won't Get Fooled Again" as it relates to a speech by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

With a focus on one speech by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., discuss his concerns about America meeting the promises of the nation's founding principles of equality for all. 

The class theme of "Won't Get Fooled Again" may be addressed as:

  • newspaper and magazine articles
  • the New York Times
  • an online book review of a prominent biography of MLK or a review of one of his books
