Start Assignment

Based on the readings from the previous week, your midterm assignment it to compile an analysis of the legacies of James Baldwin, Pauli Murray and Baynard Rustin. In this assignment, you will be responsible for looking at the lives of either James Baldwin, Pauli Murray or Baynard Rustin and provide an analysis of their political works. You are responsible for addressing at least the following:

  1. Short biography of Pauli Murray, Baynard Rustin, or James Baldwin.
  2. Provide specific details of their lives based on written accounts of their lives. This means that you will need to read some of the larger texts on either Murray or Rustin. Those texts are available as pdfs on Canvas.
  3. How do they carry on the radical tradition by Black queer lesbians and Black radical imagination? Be specific.
  4. What political figure or organization aligns with the works of Murray, Rustin, or Baldwin? Describe how they carry on their political agendas.
  5. If this person was alive today, how do you believe they would respond to activism, politics, and government today?

Make sure to include a works cited page at the end of your presentation. It can be in any style that you traditionally use in your discipline.

Please respond to the questions in a Google Slides, Prezi, or Powerpoint format. Include at least 3 citations or quotes from readings in your presentation. You must include a Works Cited slide.

You are also required to have a Flipgrid with your presentation. Go to this link to upload a Flipgrid video guiding me through your presentation. The link to the Flipgrid topic is here:

You do not have to upload the presentation to the Flipgrid, just talk through it. I am specifically looking for you to respond to certain questions, which you will find on the Flipgrid.
