Lesson Focus Question: How did the Black Panther Party’s survival programs, specifically the Free Breakfast Program, support the organization’s larger goals for systemic change?

Teaching Thesis: Although the Black Panther Party is remembered for its use of military tactics and emphasis on police patrols and open carry demonstrations, they also developed programs to meet the day to day needs of community members. The Black Panther Party survival programs, namely the free breakfast program, were instrumental in furthering the organization’s objectives. The survival programs served as a powerful recruiting tool and helped to meet the basic needs of community members so that they could focus on the larger goals of peace, justice, freedom, and self-determination.

The project was based on a proposal by Hannah-Jones to dedicate an issue of the magazine to a re-examination of the legacy of slavery in America, at the anniversary of the arrival of the first slaves to Virginia. The plan was to challenge the notion that American history began in 1776. The initiative quickly grew into a larger project. The project encompasses multiple issues of the magazine, accompanied by related materials on multiple other publications of the Times as well as a project curriculum developed in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center, for use in schools. The project employed a panel of historians and support from the Smithsonian, for fact-checking, research and development. The project was envisioned with the condition that almost all of the contributions would be from African-American contributors, deeming the perspective of black writers an essential element of the story to be told.

19th Amendment at 100: A Centennial Reassessment, Focusing on Sex, Race, and Memory (Webinar Resources)
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which removed “sex” as a legal reason to disqualify citizens from voting. Centennial celebrations have revealed how little most Americans know about the history of women’s rights and how contested this history remains. For the past 100 years, suffrage history has been marginalized and narrowly focused on a few white leaders. But recent scholarship has upended the standard narrative of suffrage, which starts with the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention and focuses on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. This webinar will incorporate new research on suffrage, highlighting sex and race. Drawing on the book Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener (W.W. Norton, 2020), we will consider how the sexual double standard motivated activists, how the 19th Amendment got through Congress, and how racism shaped the suffrage movement and its legacy.These readings support the webinar of the same title featuring Kimberly Hamlin, Associate Professor of History, Miami University of Ohio.

In this lesson, students will analyze and compare the rhetorical choices used to achieve a variety of purposes in two speeches written and delivered by high school students following the February, 14, 2018, school shooting in Parkland, Florida. This lesson asks you to consider the rhetorical strategies used Lily Lehman from Durham, NC, and Emma Gonzalez from Parkland, Florida, to persuade their audience to push for meaningful gun reform. Student speakers expertly used rhetoric to craft speeches for a variety of occasions, audiences, and purposes. Students will also explore the importance of speech delivery and how a speech’s “performance” can affect its audience and purpose. Finally, students will discuss how social media can encourage and enable young people to organize, protest, and contribute to real world meaningful change.

An AI Pattern Language
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

D&S researchers Madeleine Clare Elish and Tim Hwang discuss the social challenges of AI in their collection of essays, An AI Pattern Language.

From the authors:

How are practitioners grappling with the social impacts of AI systems?

In an AI Pattern Language, we present a taxonomy of social challenges that emerged from interviews with a range of practitioners working in the intelligent systems and AI industry. In the book, we describe these challenges and articulate an array of patterns that practitioners have developed in response. You can find a preview of the patterns on this page, and you’ll find more context, information, and analysis in the full text.

The inspirational frame (and title) for this project has been the unique collection of architectural theory by Christopher Alexander’s A Pattern Language (1977). For Alexander, the central problem is the built environment. While our goal here is not as grand as the city planner, we took inspiration from the values of equity and mutual responsibility, as well as the accessible form, found in A Pattern Language. Like Alexander’s patterns, our document attempts to develop a common language of problems and potential solutions that appear in different contexts and at different scales of intervention.

While we believe the views we present are significant and widely held, these patterns are neither comprehensive nor proscriptive. Rather, this document is an experiment in cataloguing and catalyzing. AI is not out of our control, and an AI Pattern Language calls attention to the ways in which humans make choices about the development and deployment of technology. This text was created in the spirit not of an answer, but of a question: how can we design the technological future in which we want to live?

Abigail and John: Portrait of a Marriage (webinar resources)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

History has treated the founding of the United States as an exclusively male enterprise. One reason for this is that biographers and historians mostly focus on the political, military, and diplomatic aspects of the era. Scant attention is paid to the social world where women primarily functioned. The story of Abigail and John Adams changes the narrative by examining their remarkable fifty-four year marriage in the context of the Revolutionary and Federal periods, shifting the historical lens to their family. This is possible because, alone among the wives of the founders, Abigail Adams’ hundreds of letters have survived. Abigail wrote elegant, poignant, picturesque prose, and John Adams wrote back. John was undoubtedly the greatest literary stylist among the founders. The story of their marriage set into the context of their time provides a more complete narrative of the Revolution and early National Era. These readings support the webinar of the same title featuring Edith Gelles, Professor of History and Senior Scholar, Stanford University.
