For the Record, Chapter 32: Rebellion and Reaction: The 1960s and 1970s (Group 3, Due 12/12)

Instructions:  Using the “New Post” function, write a blog post that discusses a specific quote from one of the primary source entries in Chapter 32 of For the Record (listed below). Your group should aim to produce evenly distributed posts on each of the entries, so try to pay attention to what others have already posted and choose your source accordingly. A blog post should include:

(1) The title, author, and year of the entry

(1) A specific, brief quote from the entry

(2) a brief description of how you think the quote reflects the social, political, and/or economic realities of the specific era in which it was produced.  How might the author’s position in American society determine WHY they feel the way they do?

IMPORTANT:  Be sure to categorize your post under “For the Record, Chapter 32″ (the Categories buttons should be on the lower right) so you can get credit for your post!
