1921 Tulsa Massacre

Black Lives Matter Task

During June and July 2020 with the police brutality and killing of African Americans, riots and protests were rampant throughout the U.S.

The purpose of this assignment is to write a Wikipedia page, in which you discuss any issue on Black Lives Matter. This essay is built around pictures and videos of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, including anything from Occupy Wall Street (OWS). You may use pictures and videos you have taken or from any other source. You can include your feelings, thoughts, and experiences with BLM. Something you might want to include in this assignment is how OWS is similar and/or different from Black Lives Matter. You can take this assignment from any perspective (i.e., police, activist, victim, business, or onlooker).

This assignment will be posted to the ePortfolio and not completed in Word. You can organize and design (e.g., text wrapping around pictures) this assignment any way you want. The pictures you choose will dictate how you write this.

The citation style can be APA or MLA. It is your choice; just choose the one you are most comfortable with. The length can vary due to the platform it will be submitted on. However, it needs to be fully developed.

It is best to write it out in Word first, and use Spell Check and Grammar Check, as well as check for spacing issues. Once you have done this, then, you can post it to the ePortfolio platform. You will need to do some reformatting because you will upload it to a different system and platform.

As always, I am available via Zoom for an individual session if you are having problems with uploading and/or formatting it to the ePortfolio platform.

Grading will be based on several criteria: (1) Attention to task; (2) Presentation; (3) Content; (4) Proofreading; and (5) Citation style.
