CIVIL RIGHTS CLASSWORK & HOMEWORKNote: Check this site daily for updates. To the extent that I can, I’ll post materials from what we do in class each day. However, not everything can be posted, most notably chapters from the book we will use, A Dream of Freedom by Diane McWhorter. You are responsible for completing the readings from the book if you’re absent, so you will need to see me to figure out when you can come in to make up the work.
