For my playlist I decided to do Slavery and Civil rights. I thought this would be an interesting theme because both slavery and civil rights have a different tone throughout time so it puts together a fun and thought out playlist. For slavery, the slaves were fighting for their physical freedom, where in the Civil Rights time period African Americans were fighting for their rights and freedom to make their own choices. The music starts out with songs from the slavery time period- many of the songs are sung by older African Americans singing about what their ancestors went through. The songs about slavery have a calm and soft tone. You can really hear the hurt in their voices. Then it shifts to Civil Rights where African Americans would sing about their rights and freedom for themselves. In the songs about Civil Rights it is super upbeat and cheerful. The African Americans are proud of who they are, they are excited for what's to come about their rights in the future.

Unit 6- Chicago World's Fair- Idaho State Building Cool that you chose this! What else? Why so important? -SW

The Idaho state building was designed by Kirtland Cutter for the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893. The building as a whole cost $15,000, it was very popular and was visited by an estimated 18 million people. The building was built entirely of cedar trees. The shakes on the rood were held in place with heavy rocks and withstood the great Chicago gales. The big arched door as seen in the picture opened into a large room. Stairways led to the second floor, where there were a bunch of windows, This floor had divided accommodations for both men and women. The mens fireplace was made of lava rock and the andirons were made of bear traps and fish spears, how manly!!!
After a few years it was then purchased to be used as a summer residence near a Northern resort.
