Even today we see where citizens are interested in government affairs seemingly only if our country is in turmoil such as unemployment, recessions, civil unrest, etc. Do you agree with this assessment? Are we uninformed? Do we wait till a crisis happens to voice our opinions?Option 2: Many experts see the media as biased and more like infotainment.

      Social Movements are only as important as the person leading them. The person(s) leading a social movement must have charisma and be able to captivate an audience.

Pay special attention to the following aspects in the two speeches.

      3. How does the location of the speeches support their messaging? Dr. King’s speech was held in a church and at the Lincoln Memorial, whereas today we have social networking and more avenues to relay messages. Does messaging make a difference?
