ASSIGNMENT: Primary Sources: The Sit-Ins at Leb’s Restaurant

Primary Sources: The Sit-Ins at Leb’s Restaurant

Description

For this assignment, you will help to “crowdsource” a library of primary sources based upon a specific event: the civil rights protests at Leb’s Restaurant, and the debates surrounding these protests, in the early 1960s. You will then write a paper that uses these primary sources to create a narrative of the event (as best you can), and to analyze and reflect upon the evidence.
