Write an essay in which you give a history of our current national anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. Talk about when its words were written, and by whom, explain the process by which it became our official anthem. To what tune is it set? Where and when is it used currently? etc. Finally, what is racist about the Star Spangled Banner? Note that I do not want
you to tell me whether or not it is racist–it is. Your job is to find
out why. And, yes, there is a specific right answer–and the more details, the better. Remember, we’re working through a problem here and
that’s what Americans do–peacefully and politely–and so any “my anthem right or wrong” sentiments are inappropriate here and will cost you all your points for the whole project. In your essay be sure to give me a complete set of lyrics for the Star Spangled Banner.
