Ask students to write about or discuss in pairs, small groups, or as a class some or all of the following:
How does the Great Migration relate to the Red Summer?
What are other political, economic, and cultural developments after WWI that help explain the Red Summer?
Is it accurate to say these events “led to a shared national identity”? Why or why not?
Optional US History Larger Context:
Set a purpose for reading: “To understand the bigger picture of these stories, we’re going to read a short article about the Great Migration. As you read, think about how this new information helps explain why there was violence in both the north and the south.”
