19th Century Humanities




1)      A) Which main topic does the artifact relate to? In what ways?
          This artifact is related to race relations: abolition, because William Wilberforce he himself is an abolitionist who abolished both the slave trade and slavery itself, making a better quality of life for each and everyone of us. 

         B) Which other main topics does it also relate to?
          This can also relate to human movement, for African slaves were later moved after the slave trade was abolished.

2) Why did you choose this artifact, and how much time did you spend creating and/ or processing it?
     I chose this artifact because an interview can give a fair amount of information without it being just a dull presentation but also an illustration of the interactions between characters in a particular story. Our group spent about 6 hours processing the video.

3) What insights and understanding have you gained from the creation and/or processing of this artifact?
    This artifact made me understand how an abolitionist's strong opinion would be when engaged in such a serious topic. The strong determination needed when standing up for a certain side of an argument, getting ready to perform some sort of demonstration to show how you feel.
4) Does this artifact reflect your best work and/or ideas? Why, or why not?
      This artifact reflects my best work because it allows me to deflect onto a different point of view, a view that is critical.  It gives us space to develop out information into a presentation well-thought out.
