You must write Essays based on your analysis of your choice of the documents below to fulfill the essay requirement. They are worth a maximum of 400 points each. The essays should not be long–no more than 2 pages (500 words minimum). Read the document and respond to the questions at the end. Number your responses to correspond to the questions and answer each question in a new paragraph. Each paragraph should include support drawn directly from the source. I look for more than a simple factual answer to the question. Tell me why you think your answer is correct. In other words justify your answer from the document itself or by logical reasoning about its contents and the events that brought it about. Show me that you have thought seriously about what you have read. When you have finished the paper submit it through “Safe Assign.”

Based on your analysis of the essay, address the following questions:
1) What were the major strategies, obstacles and benefits of African- American migration?
(This should be written as a “traditional” essay that includes an examination of each underlined term.)
