Select a historically relevant woman or man out of assigned chapters, and then connect that person to your identified modern day change maker from the 21st century.

Week 5 Connecting Past to PresentAs you read chapters 21 and 22 from Give Me Liberty,I am sure you will agree that there have been both women and men who haveplayed a significant role in the development of the U.S. during the GreatDepression and WW II. These are people who we can study from the past tohelp us better understand certain prominent figures in our worldtoday.Select a historically relevant woman orman out of your reading this week, indicate the chapter/installment inwhich you found the historical figure you are discussing, and then connect thatperson to your identified modern day change maker (forbetter or worse) from the 21st century (the last 20 years). Yourentry should be between 200 and 250 words (please include your word count atthe bottom).Model your work after my example.Example:SupremeCourt Justice Hugo BlackSupremeCourt Justice Anthony KennedyIn Give Me Liberty chapter 22 “Japanese-AmericanInternment” Foner discusses a very important individual in Americanhistory—Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black. Black (interestingly enough aperson noted for his defense of civil liberties) wrote the majority (6-3) opinionfor the Korematsu case involving the constitutionality ofFDR’s Presidential order 9066 creating the Japanese internment camps.Despite the fact that this was clearly a violation of Japanese-American civilrights, the court upheld the legality of the internment camps. However,in 2018 the SCOTUS finally overruled the Korematsu case.Chief Justice John Roberts said the presidential order creating theseinternment camps was based on race and was “objectively unlawful andoutside the scope of presidential authority.”A more recent case focused on civil liberties involved theconstitutionality of same sex marriage. In 2015 Justice Anthony Kennedydelivered the majority (5 to 4) opinion in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.Instead of siding with those who believed marriage is a state issue andtherefore should be addressed by the state, Kennedy sided with those justiceswho saw bans against same-sex marriages as a violation of the14th amendment and the right to equal protection under the law.Interestingly, Kennedy was appointed by a conservative president, RonaldReagan. Yet, he transcended partisan politics and instead viewed theissue though a constitutional lens, and voted accordingly.While these ruling were very different, Black and Kennedyboth showed the independent nature of the judicial branch. (240 words)* While Martin Luther King, Jr. was a youngchild and teenager during the era we are studying this week, he grew into themost important leader and voice of the civil rights movement of the 1950sand 60s. The quote “We are not makers of history. We are made byhistory” is from a sermon in Strength to Love (1963).
