Select ONE (1) of the following questions to answer. Make sure to incorporate evidence from this week’s readings to support your argument:
One of the core elements of the African American community after the end of slavery was education. Generally, African Americans hungered for learning and placed a high value on education. What evidence supports this claim? Additionally, discuss the various ways that African Americans viewed education in the first 3-4 decades after slavery ended. Make sure to discuss the conflict/disagreement that is seen in the writings of W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington. Explain both sides and evaluate how both can be seen as specific strategies and not compromises in light of the restrictions in Jim Crow America.

According to Ida B. Wells, “Our country’s national crime is lynching.” Evaluate this statement. Why and when did African American lynchings become widespread? What was the stated and, perhaps most importantly, underlying purpose of lynching? How did racial terror lynchings shape life for African American communities across the South?
