For this week’s discussion board, I want to reflect on the previous pages in this module.
In this discussion board, I want to you to show an understanding of the material covered in the previous pages. Please use the terminology or ideas presented in the previous pages. Failure to do so, will result in a low discussion board grade.
In the first page of this module, we looked at an important speech by Sojourner Truth and a poem by Langston Hughes and examined the ongoing debate regarding funding for the wall on the southern border. Based on those topics, please answer the following questions and make sure to respond to your peer’s responses:
1.) You were asked to read Truth’s speech and Hughes’ poem. Although there were written many years ago, some might see a connection to today’s society. Do you find either Truth’s speech or Hughes’ poem to be relevant and have any connections to today’s society? Do you see anything happening today that is similar to what is represented in the speech and in the poem? If you do not see any relevance in what they are saying, please explain why you think the speech or the poem is not relevant for today’s society. For this response, you only need to refer either the speech OR the poem. Please discuss a few things that come to mind and explain.
2.) The US Constitution was passed in 1787. As discussed in the module, the Constitution is an old and rather brief document. It was also written primarily by white, land-owning men. How do you think this is relevant in today’s society and what impact do you think those factors have had on the Constitution. Please discuss a couple of things that come to mind and be sure to explain your answers.
Your FIRST post should be a minimum of 200 words.
