View the following preview and check out this link for more information. Make a connection between one thread of this complicated history to Arthur Miller’s play that is being performed in our PAC this weekend. In other words, write a substantial argument (6-8 sentences of Standard English) where you make a specific connection between an actual moment in American history (of the blacklist, Miller, Kazan, or McCarthyism) to a specific scene in the play. You can find full versions of this documentary online to learn more about this “complicated” issue, and appreciate how friendship between two artists played an interesting role admist the social and political turbulence. You can use other sources to elucidate your historical connection. Click on the “Comment” thread below for your extra credit. Good Night, and Good Luck.
