“100 Questions and Answers About African Americans” is out and available in print and digital formats.
Michigan State university students created this guide against the backdrop of protests about racial equity on our campus and dozens of others.
This is our largest guide so far and it includes multimedia. There are videos about Black hair and Black fraternities and sororities. There are several graphics and our first motion graphic, which explains the reasons for wealth disparity.
Next, we will come out with “100 Questions and Answers About American Jews.” We are aiming for March.
Our next guide, “100 Questions and Answers About African Americans,” is in the proofing stage and we are working to get it out for Black History Month.
The guide was written in the fall semester as racial demonstrations occurred in American cities and on scores of campuses. The guide will help people understand what those demonstrations are about and the long root that led to them.
The guide answers questions about Black and African American identity, history, language, contributions and several other subjects.
It busts some myths.
And, for the first time in the series, it includes student-produced videos and a motion graphic to help tell the story.
