The purpose of this assignment is to familiarize students with people who have made a difference in areas related to diversity. These people have made contributions to psychology or other disciplines, the local community, and/or in U.S. history. A short list of names is provided on p. 3 of the attached document. I add names of local people. The studentsâ€™ task is to research their assigned person(s) and make a brief (5-minute) presentation about their personâ€™s work/professional life.
