DSOC/AMST/LSP 375 GROUP PROJECTS COMPARATIVE U.S. RACIAL AND ETHNIC RELATIONS-MIZE Final Group Project Prompter Dr. Mize The final group project is designed to be summative and you will be responsible for integrating the central ideas of the course into a coherent and logical critique of race and racism and apply to a study site of your choosing how both the interpersonal and institutional facets of race can be challenged and overcome.

You will be graded on content, not style (though style doesn’t hurt), so don’t worry about html coding and feel free to use MS Word save as .htm function if you are not proficient in web design and software packages such as Dreamweaver or Front Page. I can provide an html template if you want to use that format. Any further questions about the content of the website and overall design should be
