Only answer SIX of the following questions: 1. In what ways has the Civil Rights

Only answer SIX of the following questions:
1. In what ways has the Civil Rights Movement and its major figures been narrated that actually limit our understanding of the breadth and depth of black freedom struggles? Furthermore, how has this impacted our understanding (or representation) of the BLM movement?
2. How has vagrancy been used to criminalize black populations and undermine black politics?
3. Kwame Ture and Charles V. Hamilton define racism and differentiate between personal and institutional. Give this definition in your own words using examples from the class to make the distinction.
4. What is post-racialism and how does it misunderstand racial oppression in the United States?
5. Choosing from one of the issues listed (criminalization, prison industrial complex/mass incarceration, practices of rebellion and resistance, or radical political mobilization), discuss how it is shaped by the intersection of race and gender.
6. How do practices, rather than just ideologies, establish and maintain a racial hierarchy between blackness and whiteness? Feel free to use examples to make your argument.
7. How does Hartman’s use of the term anarchy help us understand the limits of formal politics?
