Research Project: Using a combination of primary and secondary sources write a 5-8 page paper on the nature of dissent. What impact has dissent had on the course of American history? And what influence, if any, have voices of dissent in the United States had on other protest movements around the world. What is dissent? Is it an effective force for change? Or merely a safety valve for letting off steam? Should dissent consist solely of peaceful non-violent demonstrations? Under what circumstances should it ever become violent? Or should it never become violent? What is the difference between legitimate grievances and injustices and perceived grievances and injustices? Also be sure to discuss various forms of dissent. There are many documents in Dissent in America: Voices That Shaped a Nation that can be a starting point for your research.  The paper is to be submitted to me digitally by 17 May 2017.
