. This week, the team is creating a digital exhibit of the slave trade. Using the primary sources on pages 63-71, write a 125-to-175 word description of the Atlantic slave trade, including three-to-five quotes from primary sources in the document project. Indicate in parentheses after each quote from which document it came (Equiano, Belinda, Barbot, Day, Falconbridge, Hopkins). Include one image, along with a caption indicating where you found it and what it depicts.
In a separate paragraph, provide two-to-four sentences of reflection on why you chose the quotes and image you did.
Requirements: a description with quotes, an image, a reflection
Note: If you haven’t received your textbook yet, you can access the primary sources at the following links:

For this part, I want you to do something a little different: imagine that the Chicago Police and FBI didn’t murder Fred Hampton in December 1969 but rather that he passed away in September 2021 at the age of 73. What would his life have looked like? Write an obituary of 300-600 words detailing this possible alternate life for Fred Hampton, keeping in mind the ways structural forces, individual talent, and contingencies shape history. You might consider the life arcs of Bobby Rush, Eldrige Cleaver, John Lewis, Jesse Jackson, Sr., Angela Davis, Assata Shakur, and Kwame Ture for inspiration.
