Black Power

Use this New York Times activity to research contemporary leaders in the African-American community. After reading the article "Blacks Weigh the Impact of the Post-Jackson Years," middle and high schoolers discuss the varying viewpoints of these leaders - and the rest of society - as they choose five people to invite to a roundtable. The rest of activity prompts them to write an essay about their choice of guest.
