Today we took a look at some highlights from the GOP Debate last night. We talked about where each campaign stands, how the candidates are shifting their attacks, and what might happen on Tuesday.
Then we shifted gears and talked about 3 different social groups after WW2: Veterans, Women, and Black Americans. We looked at how the US Government provided needed support to veterans and how an ad-campaign attempted to get women out of the workforce. Then we talked about race. It was a serious, but informative conversation that will frame the way we analyze the 1950s.
Your homework tonight is two-fold (get it?).
2.What is double consciousness?
3.How is vision through the veil two-fold?
4.How does this apply to the 1950s?
5.Is there a modern equivalent of “the veil” in society? In High School?
