Carter | 1Delesia CarterProfessor Chris Corcoran, M.A.African American History and Culture - AMH209211/02/2018PROJECT DRAFTThe first topic I am considering for my final project is slave resistance. I believe the spiritof determination and fight was always embedded in African Americans. Slaves rebelled throughviolence, running away and death. Our text book states, “The magnitude of slaves’ dissatisfactionalso manifested itself in”. (Franklin, J. H., & Higginbotham, E. B. 2011, 153)The second topic I may choose is The Underground Railroad. African Americanscourageously risked their lives to ensure others attained freedom. Our text states, “GovernorJohn A. Quitman of Mississippi declared that between 1810 and 1850 the South lost 100,000slaves, valued at more than $30 million.” (Franklin, J. H., & Higginbotham, E. B. 2011, 201)The third topic I may choose is the institution of churches and fraternal organizations.
