Prep Paper Assignment
Read: Fairclough, “The Rise and Fall of Black Power” BlackPower.pdf
Write: Assignment must be typed, double-spaced, with your name at the top Write a paragraph that answers this question:
Does Adam Fairclough say that the Black Panthers were innocent victims?
Read Fairclough’s chapter about the Black Power movement and watch for the point where he addresses this very question. Note that the question here is: what is Fairclough’s view of the Black Panther’s responsibility for their fate, not what others see as the reason. Do not use the Internet to find some approximate answer to the question.
Write a paragraph of at least four sentences, including a topic sentence that answers the question generally and relates to all of the sentences in the paragraph. Use NO QUOTATIONS. Write your paragraph entirely in your own words.
