Question Description

This week, you will learn more about the Chinese railroad workers who helped connect the United States from coast to coast. The online exhibit is full of images, first-hand narratives, and other primary source material that document their experiences. Next you will learn more about two influential African Americans who started in the NAACP - W.E.B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington. Both worked toward the same goals for African Americans but came from different backgrounds and had different opinions on how to accomplish those goals. Lastly, you will take a look at how the 14th Amendment protects minorities and other marginalized groups from discrimination. It ties in a lot of what you have learned up to this point in the course, including immigration, the Chinese Exclusionary Act, and the treatment of Native Americans.

Please respond to ALL of the following questions in a primary posting of at least 200 words. Make sure to address every part of the question in detail. Remember to cite your sources. In addition, please make a substantive comment to at least one of your classmates.

  • The American government came to see the reservation as the solution to dealing with the Native Americans in the western territories. What types of policies did the government enact to further this agenda?
  • How did life on the reservation compare with life on tribal lands? What is the legacy of this solution? How do you think this perspective helps you to understand Native Americans and the reservation system of today?
