Colorism through a Historical Lens

Colorism  (APA style, double space, cite sources).  Analyze your issue through the lens of history, and address the following:  How does this issue/event interact with the history lens and impact social issues?  In what ways does the history lens help articulate a deeper understanding of the social issue(s) that inform your issue/event? Next, analyze your issue/event through the lens of the humanities by exploring the following questions: How is this issue/event portrayed creatively in society? What is the message or commentary of this representation? How does this representation interact with you in your personal and professional lives?  Lens Analysis: In this section of your assignment, you will analyze your issue/event through two of the four general education lenses. A. Analyze your issue/event through the lens of history for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your analysis. B. Analyze your issue/event through the lens of the humanities for determining its impact on various institutions. Utilize evidence from research to support your analysis. The Humanities At the core of the Humanities is human creativity, and they explore the things that humanity creates and how they offer insight into the way people experienced their present, interacted with their culture, and comprehended abstract concepts and big questions about humanity’s place in the universe. The humanities broaden perspectives and promote an understanding of multiple experiences, cultures, and values through various mediums of creative human expression–such as literature, fine art, dance, photography, literature, philosophy and religion, film and television, music, even the Internet and social media–many of which are taught as separate academic disciplines. Within the Humanities, both the artist’s (or creator’s) intent and audience reception of a creative artifact are considered to help understand cultural values and why they matter. They celebrate cultural diversity while also highlighting cultural similarity. History: Many of us are familiar with history as being a list of dates, events, and people to memorize, but history. Your primary exposure to history could have been in grade school required classes or in documentaries about subjects you find interesting. There is so much more to history, however. History tells the stories of our past to help us better understand how we go to the present. In addition to dates, events, and people, history encompasses first-hand accounts of experiences that include artifacts from an era (tools, clothes, toys, etc.), letters or diaries from people who lived during a certain time, documents from a time period, photographs, and, when possible, interviews with people who lived through the events that historians study. Together, these historical remnants help write a story of a particular time, which is then folded into the stories of history we are living and making today
