American history since 1877 can be divided in periods of rapid change and intermittent periods of relative calm. Among notable periods of rapid and substantial change, one can identify the Progressive Era (ca. 1880-1920), the New Deal (1933-1945), and the post- World War II years (ca. 1945-1968). Observing politics, economy, society, culture, gender and race alike, which period produced the most substantial change?
Discussion #10: The Struggle for Civil Rights
Throughout the 1950s African Americans in northern cities grew increasingly active in opposing discrimination and in protesting white resistance to black progress in housing, education, and employment. Martin Luther King and others embarked on a campaign of nonviolent resistance and demonstrations, which spread to the south. Some of the leadership in the Deep South responded with brutal force, taking a militant stand against change, and in defiance of federal legislation to grant African Americans their civil rights.
In order to prepare for this discussion forum:
Review and identify the relevant sections of Chapter 29 that support your discussion.
Read DEBATING THE PAST: The Civil Rights Movement
Review the material contained in the site Responses Coming from the Civil Rights Movement.
After you have completed your readings post your response to only one of the following questions:
Identify and list some of the factors that contributed to the success of the Civil Rights movement. Choose one, and discuss its significance to the movement, and explain why you made this particular choice.
“Ironically, the reaction of many southern whites to the civil rights activities may have actually served to help the blacks’ cause.” Agree or Disagree with this statement. Make sure that you provide evidence to support your argument.
Refer back to pages 35-79 in Reforming America, choose one of the mid-19th century religious/utopian communities or bodily/self-improvement movements and describe its basic beliefs. How did the movement that you chose fit into the overall spirit of reform during the time period?

1. Color Centers
Color center are responsible for beautiful colors of some ancient artwork. Such color centers are observed in many other materials as well, table salt for example. The figure below shows an absorption coefficient, α, of table salt, also known as NaCl. The absorption feature related to the color centers is strongly peaked in the visible and gives rise to the slightly yellow color of table salt. If you would take a salt crystal and irradiate it with energetic ions or X-rays, you would find that the crystal turns dark yellow. Color centers are formed by the creation of socalled Frenkel defects, an ion displaced from its usual site in the crystal. The vacancies that remain after the ions are displaced (by e.g. an energetic particle) can trap charges. Some configurations in which charge can be trapped are shown and named in Figure 2.
2. Metallic nanoparticles
Some of the beautiful colors of 17 th century church windows and ancient glass objects derive their color from the presence of nanometer size noble metal particles. We would like to study the optical properties of a piece of SiO 2 glass with a refractive index of n SiO2 = 1.5 that has a low concentration of Ag nanoparticles (radius R) embedded in it. We illuminate the glass on one side with a white light source and notice a beautiful yellow color in transmission.
