Activism Proposal

            Activism Project Proposal (revision).
             Backround: Racism is a problem in the United States that activists, such as Martin Luther King Jr. and his daughter Yolanda King, have been working to change for centuries. For example, when Yolanda walked the same route as her father in Marquette Park, she states " that it was possible to think that everything had changed in Marquette and the South because she received warmer reception than her father did, but memories of the 1966 riots linger, as well as some of the issues her father worked to change" (Pickett, 1). Also, some movements that King launched, such as the Poor People's Movement, have seemed to work against his "dream" of a "promised land of equality" because there are more women and people of color living in poverty now then when he launched the movement ( Pickett, 1). The American Film Festival of 2002 has given the film Far From Heaven the biggest buzz because it reveals the truth about " racism taking over the suburban garden", and has praised it as a quality American movie, talking about it as the "new American Beauty ticket to the Oscars" ( Jacobson, 1). Big business is paving the way for a transracial America and an end to the era when "whiteness was assumed to be the norm" because "since 1991, beauty lines such as Maybelline and Revlon have been aiming their products at dark-skinned women to make the most profit, and white women liked the darker shades, while women of color responded favorably to the beauty of models of other shades" (Wynter, 2). .
             School/ Community Impact: In an effort to impact the entire Queen of Peace Community, each group member will pass out ribbons of different colors during each of our homerooms on the day our group presents, which will symbolize people of different races around the world being united with each other. The purpose of the ribbons is to make each student more open to other races and cultures by representing a different race.
