African American History, October 27
Today in class we looked at the early free black societies of the north. We read about the importance and contributions of the black church, schools, and societies. Our assignment is as follows: After reading pgs. 154-159 in the textbook, imagine you are a free black living in Philadelphia in 1805. Describe your daily life. Be sure to include any clubs or organizations that you are a part of, the role of the church, and the schooling process. The assignment will be tomorrow at the end of class and should be about a page in length.
