New Questions for Washington and Du Bois Readings

This is for the absent students in the AP US History class. I have revised the questions for the Washington and Du Bois primary sources, and posted them on the AP US History website. Please answer these questions instead of the ones handed out in class.

AP US History Documents

For those who will not be in class today due to weather, the discussion of the Washington and Du Bois documents will still be held tomorrow. The second period class did not receive the Du Bois response to the Atlanta Compromise speech, so here is the link: http://historymatters.gmu.edu/d/40

Have a safe and productive day.
