Part 1)

This week we will be reading the transcript to a documentary “The Story We Tell” from Race: The Power of an Illusion. Share your reflection on the film/transcript that covers Race and Historical Issues, what stands out to you about the historical construction of race.

Part 2)

Apply the theoretical concept of White Nostalgia to places/imagery such as Weddings held at Slave Plantations, views on Confederate Statues, and the Confederate Flag.

Remember to share in-depth reflection on these questions and ask a thought-provoking question to the class in the discussion posts.
