1) Critical Race Theory (CRT): For students aware that there is a public discussion over some institutions of education attempting to, or actualizing  banning, the teaching of critical race theory, I have provided a classic reference by Cheryl  Harris from the Harvard Law Review: “Whiteness as Property”. CRT, from my understanding (a little more than layman, but not comprehensive as the theory is based in technical training as a lawyer which I am not), emerged from legal theorists decades ago and broadly understood showed, like Harris, how racism was institutionalized through various realms of law; like property law. This is an article way above the level of our course, but for those wanting to “take it on” at your level, I would accept an approximately 3-4 page paper (double spaced, font 12, standard margins) for up to 25 extra-credit points and a 2-3 for a paper worth up to 15 points. The paper should consist of approximately 2/3 explication of her main points about how racism is institutionalized through property law and 1/3 reflection on what was interesting to you. and helpful for you to understand racism in the US and beyond. I would expect a paper from a student at your “introductory” level and not an advanced grasp of her ideas;/key points. You would be given respect for “taking it on” and doing your best from where you are scholastically. Those of you aspiring to legal work or getting involved / continuing your involvement on civil rights issues are encouraged to work through it and once complete know what CRT actually is about next time you hear someone discuss it. I

2. Peaceful Transition of Power : For those interested in deeper exploration of the history of this dimension of US democracy, I recommend the following film:                                  

Please find the film “transition of power: the presidency” on the streaming video site Academic Videos Online (the same tool on LCC library video collections used for the John Lewis video) and try and watch a significant portion to think further about the January 6, 2021 Capital disruption of that process. Develop a paper for extra-credit 1/2-2/3 description and 1/3-1/2 analysis that explores the history of the dimension of US democracy in light of what happened on the 6th of this year. For up to 10 points, the paper should be close to two pages, double spaced, font 12. For twenty possible points, it should be three and to go for the maximum of 30 it should be 4 pages double spaced and get pretty extensive. I will accept this paper up to the last day of instruction, but stog

(3) Describe and reflect on the life of Shirley Chisholm: the first African American woman to run for US President. 

There are many youtube materials on her; feel free to find your own. I note below a full documentary entitled “Chisholm `72 Unbought and Unbossed” and there are of course small clips on youtube and other sites. Certainly the documentary could be used to develop small papers worth 10 points and larger ones (20-30 points, per the directions above). If you are new to her, I’d suggest not a paper bigger than 20 point paper, but up to you. Those familiar would have an easier time going for a 30 point extra-credit paper. As is possible, you might try and link any paper you try with her significance in light of the reality of Kamala Harris as Vice President today. Here is the link to the documentary (by the way the beginning segments of this film will expose you to the political power, moral consciousness, and brilliance of Shirley immediately):
