Please post a 500-700 word response to this week's reading assignment. Below are some questions I pose as prompts for this reflection; you do not need to answer all of them, but may choose one as a starting point for your post. This is more than merely a reading summary, but should be a substantive, thought-provoking comment that considers and cites specific examples from the reading to make your point. You may also use your post to home in on other issues in the reading that you find particularly interesting and provocative.
How did American political leadership build a sense of national solidarity during World War II? Who was included, and who was omitted? How did the genocidal threat of Adolf Hitler become a mobilizing force for civil rights activism in the US? Why did that threat advance the cause of civil rights for some but not all (e.g. interned Japanese Americans)? What did you find most interesting in this week's readings, and why?
Can't change a rubric once you've started using it.
