In two discussion board posts, you have discussed the impact of racism on Carlotta Walls Lanier
and the Little Rock Nine. In some areas of the South like Mississippi and Alabama, bombings
and attacks killed civil rights workers or innocent black children. As Mississippi activist Anne
Moody stated in a 1985 interview, “you don’t know the effect it has on you mentally. It wear; it
tears down your heart.” In chapters 10-17, LaNier details the impact violence and attacks had on
her. In chapter 15, LaNier writes that “burying a painful past doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve
moved beyond it. It’s often still there, simmering, waiting for some unexpected moment to
erupt, spewing forth every hurtful thing that you thought had gone away.”
For this 4-5 paragraph essay, you will focus on chapters 11-17.

In paragraphs 2 and 3, explain
how significant events shaped LaNier’s later life, notably in chapters 13-15. Discuss at least
FOUR events in which she details how her efforts to desegregate Central High School altered her
goals and focus. Remember that many children comprised a core part of campaigns to integrate
schools or cities like Birmingham. Your first paragraph will be your introduction WITH A
SOLID THESIS STATEMENT. Your final paragraph will conclude your essay with a final
analysis of LaNier’s work.
Review the literacy tests from Alabama and Louisiana located in the folder “A Might Long
Way Essay Assignment” located at the Quizzes and Exams tab. Southern states used these
tests to prevent African Americans from voting until the late 1960s after the Voting Rights Act
was passed in 1965. Local county registrars implemented these tests and interpreted the results
themselves. In a paragraph, explain how these tests effectively prevented African
Americans from voting and how answers could be subjectively interpreted rather than
objectively. BE SPECIFIC and mention more than two reasons.
