Merican Shortcomings Beneath the Post-Civil Rights Facade

Preferred Writer has all materials, this included as courtesy only for order purpose.

This is the second of two papers which will be written by the same writer. The highlighted portions outline the material specific to this order, however the writer is expected to read all written data here to understand how the second paper integrates and ties into the overall project assignment. These are papers for an American History Course, History of the Sixties. PLEASE, PLEASE contact me with any questions or concerns on these assignments.

THESIS: The United States of America failed to provide an equal and equitable lifestyle for the Negro American during and after the 1960 s. Those areas most predominantly identified are: Education, Employment opportunity and Advancement, Healthcare, and Racial Equality.


For this assignment, you will use the evidence you presented in your Factual Paper to create an interpretive overview of your topic. In addition to its submission for grading, each class members Interpretive Paper will be posted to the Discussion board as part of the reading material for the course.

Interpretive Paper criteria:

 Based on the evidence you have mustered; argue the reasons that your topic is important for understanding the 60s as a social, political, or economic period, or as a cultural moment.
 Each interpretive statement that you make must be supported by your cited source material (otherwise youd be writing a speculative opinion piece, or polemic).
 Cite at least six sources for your paper, principally the sources you used successfully in your Factual Paper. Try to use these sources in a balanced way; consider alternative interpretations that might be drawn from the evidence.
 This paper should be approximately six double-spaced pages in length. It should be grammatically correct and free of typing errors. Please include a complete and accurate bibliography.
