“What Should the World Know about Malcolm X and the Black Panthers?”
So I’ve already told you that both Malcolm and the Black Panther Party (BPP) are among the most misunderstood, mis-characterized and deliberately miscast subjects in American history.
Now that you’ve read about and analyzed both of them, I’d like for you to write an essay on what went wrong.
What should people know about Malcom X and the Black Panther Party? Assume that the people who are learning are smart, decent, intellectually curious people. (I know, that’s not always easy.)
Why has this happened? Why do people think that MLK was “non violent” and MX was “violent”? Why the contrast? How does this serve history – or not?
Provide some specifics as to what you think are the MOST important things to know about these subjects. Use evidence from any of the readings or films or PowerPoints.
Assume you are the Master Historian here and you get to decide what people know. This means you have to cherry-pick among all of the sources/documents you’ve been given and decide what you think is crucial.
How are Malcom X and the Black Panther Party different? You can decide to concentrate on the group or individuals, whatever you’d like. You choose what is most interesting to you.
Remember that the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover warned “regular” Americans that Malcolm X was dangerous, that Fred Hampton was in danger of becoming the “Black Messiah,” and that the Black Panther Party was the most dangerous threat to America. Edgar Hoover advised COINTELPRO and the FBI as a whole to discredit, disrupt, and destroy the BPP and its members. Why? I always make jokes that Hoover was really upset that all of these little Black kids were getting free cereal in California – the horrors! But what WAS the big deal? This is different from the kind of Black Power that Robert F. Williams was preaching, but does have some similarities. You might talk about those, too.
*Your paper must be at least 4 pages. If you don’t give me four double-spaced pages, your grade will be lower, guaranteed.
*Your paper must have a thesis =>= An argument! If you don’t understand what this means, come see me before the paper is due so that you can get some help.
*A good argument uses evidence. That evidence must come from the books, NOT from the internet. Do yourself a favor and don’t be overcome by temptation to “look up” my questions.
*To cite a direct quote, simply use page numbers, like this: (Autobiography of MX, 78.) To cite a film: “As shown in Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution…”
*Your paper must have topic sentences and supporting paragraphs, as well as a conclusion in which you restate your thesis, offer no new evidence, but remind your reader of what is most important about your topic.
