We will leave from my office (107 Liberal Arts) at noon on Friday December 5th. Tickets to get into the museum cost $3.00. We will car-pool and split the parking. After visiting the museum, you will be required to do a 3-5 page write-up reflecting on your experience.
DUE DATE: December 12th by 5:00pm NO EXCUSES. LENGTH: Between 3-5 typed pages. All extra credit papers must be computer generated (i.e., no handwritten-ragged-edged papers need apply). FORMAT: I want you to reflect on your experiene at the museum - how did our trip make you feel personally and how can we link the things that we saw to the material we have been studying in class on racial inequalities? What parts of our trip triggered the strongest response from you and why? How is the experience of entry into the labor market different for African-Americans than for other White-ethnic groups such as Italians, Irish, or Jews? How was it different from other minority groups such as Asians or Hispanics? How can you explain the inequalities the inequalities that currently exist between Blacks and Whites from an historical perspective?
