Does the author make it clear in the introduction? 2.What is the author's thesis? 3.What kind of sources and evidence do you think the author will use to support his thesis? 1. The topic of this essay was about twenty-four burke high school students and teachers whomarched for the civil rights act. 2. Thesis Statement- "By examining the effort to desegregate public facilities through the lensof the first sit-in in Charleston, this article will illustrate how a small, committed group of local high school students and teachers played an integral, though overlooked, role in the civilrights movement".3. I believe the sources that the author would need to support his thesis would be a news source talking about the incident of the march in Burke high school. Another source he could use is a primary source such as the picture that was published in the Charleston news and courier the day after the set-in according to the article.
