This semester you will be required to do individual research to contribute to a group presentation at the end of this semester. Each student will be required to participate in a group presentation.
Freedom and equality are ideas at the center of American politics, identity, and values. The expansion of freedom and equality has been a constant theme in American history and one we have explored throughout the semester. What it meant to be a citizen and who was considered American was negotiated and redefined from the earliest days of our nation’s history. Moreover, different ideas about economic, political, and civil equality also emerged. For this presentation each group should choose an individual, organization, or group of people challenging the meaning of freedom and equality between 1960 and 2000 and explain how they are working to expand the definition of what it meant to be American.
