Legacy of Slavery Assessment

posted Feb 22, 2017, 6:14 AM by Linsey Rose

You’re having a talk with your cousin and he/she says, “Slavery ended 150 years ago. People should stop talking about it!”

Using the information from the film, present a counter-argument to your cousin. Create a graphic that shows how the legacy of slavery is still present today, but has changed forms over the years.

Be sure to include:

  • The specific ways the legacy of slavery has been present in our country after the 13th amendement made slavery illegal

  • At least two specific facts from the film

  • A paragraph to explain your graphic

Remember, your purpose is to inform & persuade.
