I have attached various quotes about the case; most of them were said by prominent people of that time period. You may refer to one or more of the quotes, use them to support your thesis and also to introduce your own essay, as well as for “evidence” of what people thought at that time. You can also follow the links to read more on the trial that is written in a summary to help you get all the facts straight. I suggest that you consider the following to write your essay. Choose ONE of the following:
1. Use the quotes to support your thesis, to strengthen your ideas or, if you disagree, to write an essay that argues against the selected quotes. Do some basic research on the author of the quotes, beginning with the “Spartacus” link.
2. Go back over the chapter and analyze it closely. This is known as “close analysis.” As you analyze what the authors say, use your own judgement to support or refute their ideas; do some basic research , if necessary. But you can also apply these quotes to certain aspects of the reading.
3. Contrast and compare other recent events; for example: Racial Prejudice and Profiling: Compare cases that are different in nature but have a similar issue: MLK, Malcolm X, fro example, or even Rodney King, as well as the tragic case of Trayvon Martin. The quotes may also apply to these issues.
