Your Assignment

Examine a protest of your choice (do not limit yourself to marches or rallies) and draw a conclusion about whether the protest you are focusing on was/is successful and why. You will examine all facets of this protest; your research will also need to include background information on the social problem or situation from which the protest originated, as well as any relevant historical information that sets the protest in its correct place and time.
