Grossmont College American Slavery Discussion


In 4 paragraphs, answer the following questions:

1) How were you taught regarding slavery in the United States? Did it change over time? How did the teaching of slavery advance your understanding of “America” as a country? Did you believe the material and lecture in this module expand your understanding?

2) Write what you learned from The Slave Narratives, citing specific examples. How did it help expand your understanding of liberty, freedom, bondage, etc. (THIS SHOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF YOUR DISCUSSION). If you do not cite specific examples from the Slave Narratives or the 1619 Project, you will not receive full credit.
