Asian American Movement
Main Prompt: compare and contrast primary sources from Asian American Movement
-“Your essay should be guided by a main argument, or thesis statement, that offers an overarching conceptual or thematic framework for your primary source analysis. That is, make a case for why/how you have chosen to draw connections between the primary sources that you have chosen.”
– Focus on the following guiding questions:
1. How do your primary sources describe the causes and roots of racism, discrimination, and/or oppression that Asian Americans faced in the 1960s and 1970s? What political tactics and strategies do these sources advocate in order to confront these inequalities?
2. How might political strategies differ between campus/student groups and community-based activist groups?
