Biological Profile

Project description
Your Research Project requires you to select a subject, topic or person within the parameters of this course and prepare a 9-10 page paper that addresses specific points. The purpose of the assignment is as follows: I. IF YOUR TOPIC IS A PERSON
A. Biological Profile: If your subject is a person this segment should include background information starting with birth date, birthplace, family history, education, early formative influences, etc. If your topic is a particular phenomena or event it may be necessary to discuss important individuals linked to or associated with your topic.
B. Historical Framework: Subject matter and/or persons must be placed within an historical background because it often shapes and forms their experiences and/or contributions. This portion might involve a discussion of politics and/or political climate e.g. Jim Crow or social factors, if relevant. For example, any entry about the Tuskegee Airmen must include some discussion about African American military service in WWII, and the resistance to African American air service.
C. Career Achievements and Accomplishments: In order to analyze individual or group accomplishments, it is important to understand the obstacles, and challenges confronting them. This information provides the backdrop against which significant accomplishments are measured or critiqued-particularly those involving adversity.
D. Significance of your selected subject/topic: You must address the influence or historical significance of your topic. This section should discuss why your topic is important to African-American and U.S. history. Did their contribution change or alter society and in what way? For example, there is no doubt that Duke Ellington is considered one of the most important and influential composers of the 20th century. Why is Ellington considered so and what did he do to merit that distinction? Questions of that kind should be addressed in this section of your paper.
E. Your Assessment of your Topic: This is the last segment of your paper. You should discuss why you selected your topic and what you think about it. II. IF YOU HAVE CHOSEN AN HISTORIC EVENT:
