Sociology | Growing Up Jim Crow | Dr. Hilton Kelly
//Seminar Paper completed during a sociology class Growing Up Jim Crow, taught by Dr. Hilton Kelly. We focused on the personal experiences during the Jim Crow period, but the class juxtaposed with the memory theory. During the semester we traveled to the Equal Justice Initiative museum and memorial. The trip truly connected the experience during the time period to how we make memory of it.
//I chose to document the different forms of activism used by African Americans during the Jim Crow era. Activism methods included the ideologies of racial uplift and the politics of respectability which highlight different forms of individual and collective/communal work within historically African American communities.
