What does segregation and discrimination mean? • It is a little hard to see, but this store has two doors. One with the word “WHITE” written above it and the other with the word “COLORED” written above it. Based on this picture and what you read in the book write down your own definition of segregation. Once you write down your own definition, you need to look up the word in the dictionary to make sure you have the correct idea. Next, write down your own definition of discrimination and look it up as well.
How would you feel? • As shown in the story and in this picture, many public places and facilities were labeled either “white” or “colored.” Write a paragraph describing how it would make you feel to live in a segregated America. Then write another paragraph describing how you think 'Trica Ann would feel to live in America today with no segregation.
How would your voice be heard? • Protests are a way for people to make their voices heard in America. Many African Americans protested segregation by getting big groups of people together. They would often hold up signs like the one in the picture. This sign says “Desegregate NOW!” Imagine that you were going to be a part of a protest against segregation. Create a poster that you would hold up during the protest.
