Allrighty, the final set of online readings:
The first piece looks at party support for civil rights in the 1960s, while the rest of the short pieces are focused on SNCC as an organization:
A few readings, and couple of short video clips:
There are other clips from Freedom Riders worth checking out, too.
Here are the next set of readings, a mixed bunch of articles, photos, and cartoons; most are fairly short (1-2 pages), although some are a bit longer.
And while I’m only pulling two editorials about the sit-ins from the Greensboro Public Library archive local newspapers, I strongly recommend perusal of the various articles, editorials, and letters contained therein.
- Editorial, Into Sharp Focus, Greensboro Record Feb 3, 1960
- Editorial, Leadership at the Five and Ten, Greensboro Daily News, Feb 5, 1960
- B Bagdikian, Negro Youth’s New March to Dixie, Saturday Evening Post, 1961?
- A Bigelow, The White Problem, Liberation, Sept 1961
- DT Lovan, The Invisible Press, The Jackson Sun
- C Sitton, Negro Sitdowns stir fear of wider unrest in the South, NY Times, Feb 1960
- Jules Ffeiffer, various cartoons on civil rights, 1960-66
- Sit-in photos
- Gallup polls on civil rights, pp 2-3

Here are a couple of videos in lieu of Monday’s class; we’ll (try to) incorporate the issues raised in these vids into class discussions.
The Battle Over Abortion in Northern Ireland (12:56):
Inside Mississippi’s Lone Abortion Clinic (15:40):

And while these are NOT required, they’re both worth a look.
The first is a short documentary on Latinas in the US, and gets at, in an everyday way, some of the issues of intersectionality:
Latina Confessions: Documentary Trailer (15:58)
PBS Makers V2: Women in Politics (52:41) covers some of the same ground as Collins’s book, and offers a nice, if somewhat bland, overview of women in American politics:

As promised, the three videos (and links back to YouTube, in case they disappear into the ether) to anchor a discussion (TBA).
The first two are specifically about bioethics, while the third is a CNN video about a deaf football league. Each of the videos is less than 15 minutes long.
