Question 1:
Instructions for this Question:
After watching Time-Life video “The Sounds of Soul,” provide one (only 1) complete exact word-for-word quotation from the video that comments specifically on the relationship of Soul Music to U.S. racial issues in the 1950s or 1960s. (Do not paraphrase or abbreviate the quote.)
• Be sure to give the name of the person who said it, and cite just ONE full quotation word-for-word (nothing more).
• The link to the Time-Life video “The Sounds of Soul” is at the bottom
• Anything said in this video that speaks to the U.S. Civil Rights Movement can be applied to the 1950s or 1960s.
• The name of each commentator is shown on-screen (not in the subtitles–on the screen of the video itself) the first time they speak in each video, so if their name is not showing, it appears earlier in the video (go back and find it—it shows for 3 seconds the first time they speak).
