Black History Month 2022 at AHS

In the United States February is Black History Month. To celebrate this, in the framework of the U.S. History class (Teacher: Mariam Khatiashvili, PhD) the AHS 12th grade students reflected on the contributions of famous African-American individuals to the U.S. society and culture. Students analyzed Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Malcolm X “The Ballot or the Bullet” speech, Jesse Jackson’s 1988 democratic national convention address, Shirley Anita Chisholm’s speech for the equal rights amendment and Barbara Charline Jordan’s 1976 democratic national Convention keynote address according to the Monroe’s motivated sequence. Using Monroe’s motivated sequence, a five-step progressive method of persuasion, students made presentations to discuss how these speeches are organized and inspire people to take action.
