Question Description

 

Consider the two iconic images of protest below:

Image result for john carlos Image result for wto seattle

CHOOSE ONE of these images to reflect on. Create a document for this assignment in which you do the following:

First, describe in a sentence or two what the image means to you.

Then, deconstruct how that meaning is derived — create two columns on your page, labeled “denotation” and “connotation.”

In the first column, list the observable elements in the image (a list of everything you see, also known as what the image denotes). Look closely, and endeavor to list at least six details.

In the second column, list what you think each of those elements signifies (what does it mean to you personally or to the culture you are a part of, also known as what the image connotes).

After you examine which elements are operating as signifiers in the image, and what concepts you are applying to them, you can read more about the first image here https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/retropolis/wp/2017/09/24/they-didnt-takeaknee-the-black-power-protest-salute-that-shook-the-world-in-1968/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.c0394fd4bbf0 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

or the second image here http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19991129&slug=2998318 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Then comment in a few more sentences on any further impressions you take away from the image.

Remember that you can submit a regular Word file here, or, for a bonus point, you can submit an audio/visual recording in which you share/show/describe/read your reflections.
