History of American Journalism

Rick Musser (


“The 1960s was marked by clashes of ideologies. In the South, blacks fought a stubborn white establishment for the rights they were owed under the Constitution.

Abroad, the United States fought a multi-front battle against the spread Communism. On college campuses across the country, a new generation of Americans rejected the post-WWII, conservative values of their parents.

And even within the Civil Rights movement, the non-violent activists under Martin Luther King, Jr., butted heads with the militant followers of Malcolm X. The result was a decade mired in turbulence — but also one that brought important changes.”

How to use punctuation marks (via enchantedlearning dot com)

[Martin Luther King]

Using correctly some punctuation marks in writing such as colon,  a comma or  an apostrophe makes the difference between a good piece of writing and a standard one. By the way, dash is the equivalent word for “raya” (Morse code) and dot is the equivalente word for “punto“.


apostrophe ( ́) an apostrophe is used as a substitute for a missing letter or letters in a word (as in the contraction cannot = can’t), to show the possessive case (Jane’s room), and in the plural of letters, some numbers and abbreviations. Note: groups of years no longer require an apostrophe (for example, the 1950s or the 90s). I can’t see the cat’s tail. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s. 100’s of years

colon (:) a colon is used before a list or quote. A colon is used to separate hours and minutes. A colon is used to separate elements of a mathematical ratio. The time is 2:15. / The ratio of girls to boys is 3:2

comma (,) a comma is used to separate phrases or items in a list. She bought milk, eggs, and bread

dash (—) a dash is used to separate parts of a sentence. The dash is also known as an “em dash” because it is the length of a printed letter m — it is longer than a hyphen

I have included extracts from the Spanish Constitution of 1978, the brilliant speech of Martin Luther King, the thirty articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I wanna be black, man

Barack Obama and kid,

Barack Obama and kid

I wanna be black. Yes, man. I wanna be black. I wanna be black like Lou Reed used to say. I wanna be black, I like black colour. I like soul & I like jazz. When I was a kid I wanted lots of things, when I got older I had many more dreams. And the dreams were not real life. Solitude and suffering were my best friends. I thought or imagined a twin angel talking to my ears. The options were music, street or books. I started poetry reading and came across Rimbaud and the French, and Lorca, Blake and others. Later, read novels, read literature and Dylan and so on. I found out the rhythm thanks to Marvin Gaye and the dance of the fifth brother-the Jacksons, I mean.  Flipped out with Martin Luther King and his poetical verse “I have a dream” like a mantra or something true. Got interested in jazz again and met the Prince of Bel Air for years in the screen. Fancied TV series later about some niggers surviving in the streets in Baltimore. I like some gestures some people make. I still remember that one at the number ten in the city of the Big Ben. Two men shake hands at the entrance door. I love the damned elegance at walking. I wanna have that fraternal spirit and speak in a woman´s voice like wine, Amy, you know, I wanna call you brother. I wanna be black, man.
