intro/EQ

Through two World Wars, the Great Depression, the Civil Rights era, and beyond, the United States has attempted to define standards of equality and liberty for its citizens.

The struggle to grant equal rights could not have progressed without the influence of many great artists, musicians, poets, and performers whose talents have enriched the cultural heritage of all Americans.

For this project, you will think about ways in which creativity and history may have mingled to provide momentum to the Civil Rights movement of the twentieth century. You’ll focus on a small but important group of African-Americans as you try to answer the following Essential Question:

How does an artist contribute to the social movements of his or her lifetime?
