Discuss the ways that Africans resisted their enslavement and oppression during the slave trade and under the institution of slavery
Using specific scenes as examples from the film Sankofa, and supplemented by other videos and historical evidence in the first unit of readings, discuss the ways that Africans resisted their enslavement and oppression during the slave trade and under the institution of slavery. You will want to be as specific as possible in describing the process and practice of discrimination, and how enslaved peoples struggled against it to define more of their own existence and to experience something other than misery. Length: 3-4 pages, double-spaced.

The conclusion should summarize the main points of your argument. This summary is still part of the argument, so you cannot simply write: As I have shown, Massachusetts was the best colony for servants.It may help to think of the conclusion as if it were the closing argument made by a lawyer in a casei??you need to remind the judge and jury (your readers) of what you are arguing and why your case is convincing. You do not want to bore or insult your readers, however, and you do not want to undermine your case, so you should be brief and to the point. It can be effective to suggest the larger significance of your argument or raise some further questions, but this is difficult to do well, so you may prefer to quit while youre ahead.
