Black Quotidian Assignment

Black Quotidian is a digital history project curated by Dr. Matthew Delmont, Professor of History at Arizona State University. Designed to “highlight everyday moments and lives in African-American history,” Black Quotidian collects historical articles from black newspapers to illuminate dimensions of black history and culture. Each day an article is posted from that date in history with a brief blog post commentary. As contributors to the project, each student in our class will be responsible for completing a post corresponding to a day in the month of November. The article selected can be from the years 1946-1971.
