Skill assignment 10: understanding interviews

 Questions. 

 After reading all of the sources, write a synthesis (200-250 words) in which you include main ideas from each reading. What happened? Why did it happen? Who was at fault? What punishment, if any, would you have recommended if you were on the jury? Why? 

Remember to look at the interviews critically: how were the two groups (Freedmen and Whites) treated by the interviewers?
