Choose an image and contribute what you know about it. What makes the image significant? Why should people investigate more about the topic? Use evidence to support your reasoning.

I chose the 2 image because it's significance to history is a big one. Beside the fact that a highschool has been named after him. This man was the first African American to win a prestigious rhodes scholarship. He was very well known and took that to his advantage to promote other African Americans who were artists and writers. We should investigate this topic more often because he was a man who always helped out others when they were despised. He helped promote others so that the next generation and the next generation can see that you can also grow no matter how hard life is being.

What I know about Alain Leroy Locke is that he was a philosopher that published a lot of books that were supportive of the black community. He was also a supporter of the renaissance movement.This image is significant because it shows Locke publishing books and that was one of his major contributions. More people should investigate the topic because he's a very important person to history and contributed a lot to it. He was the first first African American to win a prestigious Rhodes Scholarship and studies philosophy in college. There's so many great things that he did and more people should look into it.

I chose the 4th image because people should know that racism has been going on for several several years. Up to this day things don't change and it probably will never change. People of color always got accused and beat by by whites and sometimes the whites would get drunk and do it for fun. But the people of color fought back and the whites got beat. But they people from the army came back from deployment and were walking the streets with batons beating any person of color they saw. until the people from the army banned themselves from going back because they knew it was going to be too much trouble. People of color would get beat for the smallest thingy like the kind of fabric they used for their clothes or for how their clothes looks. Whites thought that the fabric they used deserved to go to the men in the army. And so many people of color got arrested.

I chose the Zoot Suit Riots image and I know that sailors were violent to young people of color because they were wearing baggy suits that used too much fabric, that should of instead have been used by military. In the article it says,"Mob of U.S servicemen took to the streets and began attacking Latinos and stripping them of their suits." People should investigate more about this topic because not a lot of people know what happened when young people of color were just wearing their style of fashion and expressing themselves.
8/20/2021 09:02:33 am
The third image is about "Zoot Suit Riots." This riot was started because a group was a target for something they didn't do but because of what they had on they was beaten. People investigated more about this because it effected many but mostly important the Mexican American people.

I agree with Jazanae because i learned about the riots a lot and its like i'm speechless about it.

I chose the third image to talk about. This image is significant because it represents the main events of the Zoot Zoot Riots. This image shows how white service men would go down beating Black & Latino people for no reason. People should investigate more about this topic because the Zoot Zoot Riots were unfair and filled with violence and racial tensions.
Anai Fernandez (Period 3)

I believe the Federal Reserve note is more significant than what we perceive it to be it has such a deeper background story to it in which we experience and live everyday of our lives.People should investigate more about the federal reserve note because in doing so you'll discover how far it has traveled to get to you.
8/20/2021 09:06:14 am
I chose to do the dollar bill because its stuff that's there on the dollar that you can't see because its hidden and I learned about it by searching about little images that i thought would be important on this dollar bill for example the bald eagle is a symbol of our independents
8/20/2021 09:07:03 am
I've chose image 2 of Alien Leroy Locke because, he is a major role in the watts community as our High school is named and remembered as his Legacy. Another note of Alien is he was a major supporter of the renaissance movement, also he was the first African-American to earn the Rhodes Scholar Ship.
Joshua D. P1
8/20/2021 09:08:40 am
I choose the image of the zoot suit riots. This image is significant because the riots were racially motivated and were most people tried to sweep it under the rug. The linked article states "Local papers framed the racial attacks as a vigilante response to an immigrant crime wave, and police generally restricted their arrests to the Latinos who fought back." This tells us that the police weren't trying to help people people of color, but were trying to silence them to not talk about the events that took place that day. We should investigate more about the zoot suit riots because this is an example of what happens if something as harmless as a style of clothes, could potentially lead to many lives to become endangered.

The 3rd image is about the zoot suit riots. I know that the navy and just military in general was going around Mexican and black neighborhoods drunk. As you can see in the picture it was all white men in the uniforms in which they represent this country.They would make lots of noise, beat people, r*pe women, and destroy business and houses. I think this is important because it was the military that was doing this to the people in a time of war when they are supposed to protect us. And it is sad that people cant and won't rely on police or military because they are traumatized.
8/20/2021 09:17:29 am
I think the dollar bill tells us a lot about ancient egypt and about life, I believe the dollar bill has a deeper meaning other than just being a currency. It has a bird that is only found in egypt and it has a uncompleted pyramid with an eye.

8/20/2021 09:20:44 am
I chose the image of the Federal Reserve note because of the details and hidden stories in it. This image is significant because we use it everyday and it travels everywhere by us passing it along . People should investigate it more because most people don't know the dollar bill is debt, also the stories behind the images in it like the eye pyramid. For example the eye in the pyramid is that of the first hero Horas who was the son of gods His father was killed by his uncle but his mother Isis revived him to make Horas who was to avenge his father and defeat set his uncle.

the 3rd imagine is about zoot suit riots and as we know the people in the uniform reprsents this country and they would beat black people for no reason and treated them like slaves and also would rape womens .
8/20/2021 09:27:43 am
I think people should learn more about the reserve note because there's a lot of back round context like the story of the eye above the pyramid and the significant details in the front

8/20/2021 09:44:05 am
The one dollar bill is something that was just given value its just a piece of paper after all. To learn that a dollar bill wasn't worth much in the past is shocking enough to learn.
8/20/2021 09:45:20 am
I chose the dollar bill image because the dollar bill contains many secrets that most people don't even know about. Information like, which federal bank it was printed at. The meaning behind the eye on top of the great pyramid. Little secrets being on there like the owl hiding behind one of the dollar sign symbols.
Mariela Cordova .
8/20/2021 09:46:47 am
I chose the 1 Dollar Bill because many people dont have enough information into putting evidence and having a clear mindset of what the 1 dollar details have all the detils it has have different meaning into it but not many people know that. for example i didnt know most of the things i know about the dollar bill now. the reason is because yesterday the class was learning about the details and the meaning of it and where it was made from.

I chose image 1 which is the dollar bill. Through the image we see a lot of things connected to the history of the world. We learned how it is connected to the first hero. We also learned how there is spider webs on the bill, which can mean that money is a trap, this gives us reasons as to why so many people are in debt. Just by looking at the bill we were able to find out about many things regarding history, and that is why people should investigate more into this topic.
8/20/2021 09:47:28 am
Picture 4(last pic)has a strong message. i know that misinformation plays a role in creating incorrect ideas. The message being given out in the image is what makes it so significant because despite their being few words, one is able to quickly interpret what it means.People should investigate more about the topic because it helps decrease the amount of people following those same footsteps.One example is the covid-19 er rupture. Despite their being a vaccine that boost immunity to this disease many misinformed people are against it and also paying the price .
Andres P. (Period 2)
8/20/2021 09:47:33 am
The second image shows Alain LeRoy Locke. He was the first African American man to receive a Rhode scholarship, which is considered to be the most prestigious award. That's one of the reasons that our school was named after him. He helped influence many people with his achievement and that's why I think more research should be done on him. He was someone who defied many of the norms back then, showing everyone what he was capable of.
Cheryl Flores P.2
8/20/2021 09:47:50 am
I choose the first image which is the dollar bill, what I know about is that there's many details on this dollar that make sense on why they put it on there. This image is significant because this dollar bill represents us, our society, our people, and represents the past and significant people. People should investigate more on this topic because there are other details on the dollar that may connect to our future or the past. The dollar bill has the first president it has an alike web on the corner of the dollar that can give us a sign that money is a trap for debt. But we need to analyze the dollar to connect the dots to other things.
jamie gonzalez (period 2)
8/20/2021 09:47:58 am
I choose the Zoot Suits Riots because the navy abused many Mexicans for no reason. The navy made a lie about Mexicans taunting them. The navy would sexually assault young Mexican-American women. They targeted Mexican-Americans for being there.
8/20/2021 09:48:22 am

8/20/2021 09:49:05 am
I chose image 2. Image 2 is a picture from 1943 when the Zoot Suit Riots happened. These white sailors were beating up non white youths mainly Latino youth on the streets of South Central Los Angeles. They would beat the youth in the street and strip away their clothes.
8/20/2021 09:49:28 am
I chose the 3rd image . This image was taken during the zoot suit riots. The zoot suit riots was caused by a group of sailors that came back from war and started beating on the Mexican youth . They would beat on the Mexican youth for what they were wearing . We should investigate the zoot suit riots because this shows how we are getting discriminated just by the clothes we wear .
Gaby.B (per. 2)
8/20/2021 09:49:49 am
In the first image, which is the dollar bill. The image is significant due to the fact that the dollar is used on a daily basis everyday. The dollar is a necessity for us human to survive or buy anything that we need. I would say more people should investigate this due to the particular reason there are many small symbols in our dollar bill; that has a big significance to us in the US. These symbols may be small but in reality mean so much more than we in reality think. Evidence is the the letter L symbol in the dollar bill it means where the dollar came from like the US national bank in San Francisco, in this case which many may not know of. All of these symbols add up to something big in the United States.
8/20/2021 09:49:56 am
I choose the 3rd image which is the Zoot Suits Riots. What I know about this event is that young Mexican Americans were being brutally hit by white Americans because of how they dressed. This image is significance not only because it was a huge deal for young Mexican Americans but now knowing that race is not real but racialism is real, it all makes scene to why they did what they did. Young Mexican Americans were being put in a category of "gangs" since that was a huge style back in the 40s.
Diane Ruiz . Per 2

For example a deeper background on the images on both sides of the bill. People should investigate more on this topic because they can learn a lot from just observing closer.

The federal reserve note is really significant because it travels everywhere in the united states in can be printed in San Francisco and travel all the way to Florida over years. people should really investigate more about them because their is allot of different story's and meanings to everything on it like the words numbers and pictures.
8/20/2021 09:52:44 am
The image I chose was the dollar bill. What I know about it is there's so much more to it then we think. We should investigate more about the dollar bill because it holds a story.
8/20/2021 09:52:59 am
The third image is about the zoot suits riots. The zoot suits riots took place in Los Angeles, California in 1943. It was racist and targeted Latinos and Mexican-Americans and those who would wear zoot suits. It was seen as disrespectful to wear zoot suits and so they forcefully took them off.
David period 3
8/20/2021 11:03:19 am
I agree with her but the reason that they would find it disrespectful is because the ones that would wear those suits we people who fought in wars. They found it disrespectful that these people were wearing it just for style. This is what lead to the people forcefully removing their clothes.
Antonio C. (period 2)
8/20/2021 09:54:34 am
The zoot suit riots were riots that happened due to white people oppressing Latino people mostly teens and young adults because they were accused of beating white men. People should investigate more about this topic because of the way the Latino people were treated on a meer accusation of white men about Latinos which could have been false to start with. They also stripped the Latino teens/men and burned their zoot suits because they were illegal and after all the stripping and beatings, Latinos were arrested to be protected from the white men instead of the white men/sailors.
8/20/2021 09:54:50 am
I chose the first image, because the Federal Reserve Note doesn't the importance that should have historically. No everyone pays attention to the little details about it, the message about the resistance over the ages hidden in the pyramid in Latin; people do not try to analyze the images on them, the symbol of the eagle holding thirteen leaves and thirteen arrows that represent the 13 states united which is the principal seal of the United States. People should investigate about it to know why Federal Reserve Note it's important to the country and its history.
Valeria Montes (period 2)
8/20/2021 09:55:25 am
I know that the Federal Reserve Note is what the bills of the United States are. The dollar bill is significant because every detail on the bill represents something important that has to do with the United States. For example, the dollar bill has the Great Seal of the United States which symbolizes the independence of our Nation and peace. People should investigate what the history of every detail on the Federal Reserve Note is because they all have a significance.
Pedro Hernandez (per:2)
8/20/2021 09:56:18 am

Genesis Rodas (period: 2)
8/20/2021 09:58:07 am
I chose image three. This image is significant because there are men wearing a specific suit and some are carrying "wood sticks". In the image there seems to be many men and look like they are on a mission. People should investigate more about this topic because a group of men, holding "wood sticks" and looking ready for a mission, has be ready for a fight or stand their ground. People should be aware that people are on a mission.

An image I've chosen is the Zoot Suit riot act . Why I think more people should investigate into this topic and take time into learning about this because if you ook at it this way, people are still doing it til this day. The zoot suit riots was all caused due to an assumption, a guess , a maybe . Navy personals and such assumed the zoot suiters were thugs, criminals , at that adolecent criminals because of the way they dress. Now for example , Me , every time I go to target or what not , or any store, who follows me , Loss prevention. I get followed for what , the way I dress and I wear sports caps. Theyre assuming Im going to steal or somethng bad. The same way the navy seals thought the zoot suiters were criminals.

Stephanie Godinez (per.3)
8/20/2021 11:00:19 am
The image that I have chosen is the Federal Reserve Note. This image is significant because it has hidden things on it that most people have never payed attention to before. For example, every letter on the bill corresponds the the 4 repeating numbers. Each letter and number also corresponds to the banks in 12 different countries where the bill was made at. People should investigate the federal reserve note more deeply so that they could learn about its background and what everything on it represents.
8/20/2021 11:01:11 am
I choose image 1 because a dollar bill can show you a lot that you don't know about. I learned a lot about life in the dollar bill and everything was hidden well it was there but its things we don't pay attention to and once you see you wont forget about it.
Monica Arenas (per-4)

8/20/2021 11:05:07 am
The image I would be choosing is image 1. Image 1 is a dollar bill which with one look, it wouldn't seem like a big deal, but we learn during class that it has many hidden meaning. One of the hidden meaning is about webs in the background, which webs are mainly known for trapping things, which could make it seem that we are being trapped too. This is very important to learn.
8/20/2021 11:06:04 am

8/20/2021 11:06:44 am

8/20/2021 11:07:04 am
I choose the first image. The first image represents the Federal reserve note, to be more specific the back of it. I know that behind that note exists a lot of history, minimum details are more the most essentials. On y point of view i think the pyramid is the most interesting and important things, besides other ones. Most of the people see this symbol like not much importance but their's a lot to know and understand. For example in that history it shows important people like Isis, Osirus, Set, and Horus. All of this people are part of this federal reserve note.

This started because the military was drunk and they went to mexican neighborhoods and they started to make noise, destroy property, and even r*pe woman. So the Mexicans decided to speak up but like always the U.S will always protect the military. The military blamed the Mexicans and told the media that the Mexicans started the fight. I think it was really unfair because we are supposed to feel safe with military but instead they traumatized our people.
Gabriela T (Per.4)
8/20/2021 12:11:14 pm
I chose number 1 because everyone should know about the federal reserve note because behind the back there is a lot of history to it. When you look closely on the note it shows when and where the note was created. Most people look at the symbol and think nothing of it but what they didn't know is there is history behind it. For example in the history it shows important people like Isis, Osirus, Set and Hours. Those people are important on the Federal Reserve Note.
Paola Mora (per4)

I chose the Zoot Suit Riots because people deserve to know what occurred during that time, sailors would beat brown colored people for wearing a Zoot Suit. If someone were to wear a Zoot Suit they'd consider the person to be dangerous. Several thousands of soldiers, sailors, and civilians, proceeded to beat up every zoot suiter they could find in Los Angeles. People of color would get beaten up with wooden sticks and get their suits ripped from sailors; tragic event.

The federal reserve note is the image I chose because one small dollar bill has so much history and information that no one knows about. The only thing people care about is that it's simply money, but no one truly knows where it comes from or how it relates to everything around us.The bill has a letter on it, and the number it is in the alphabet. People should look into the federal reserve note more, in my opinion, because all of these things are right in front of our eyes.

I chose image 3 because what I know about it is that navy sailors were beating and abusing latinos for wearing zoot suits, As they were labled dangerous and gang related. I think this should be more in topics because people don't really talk on this or know about this history. I think people should know more about this, Is because its part of LA history that people don't really know and there is more not just this that the school in LA don't teach us from what the whites did to the latinos and blacks and still till this day.

I think image 4 should have been investigated more because people should learn how to spot misinformation

I choose the third picture because it shows how much the people suffered. This picture was taken in the time the zoot suit riots began. This picture is significant because mostly African American and Mexican people started wearing loose clothing which by that time was very popularized. Young Latinos were then being oppressed by white officers who referred them as delinquents just because of the zoot suit were to attention seeking. Then things got really harsh between the white sailors and marine with the Mexican - American. Anybody who was wearing a zoot suit was beaten up by white officers. The victims that would get beaten up would get arrested for there own '' safety". Later on LA council banned zoot suits. In other word, I think people should really get into this topic to really know what really happened in this time and even to understand a little of what really went down.

I choose image 1 because people don't know about the hiding details on money because the 1 dollar bill had a lot of hiding details know one knows why is there an owl some people don't even know why the eagle is holding a plant and a arrow there could probably could be more hitting details on every dollar bill we just have to look closely at it. People about there numbers of the alphabet but did you know its also in every dollar bill. You could even see the star of David on top of the eagle and talking about that eagle presidents use it when there always making a speech. This is why i like to find these type of things hiding details on anything.

I choose number 3 because it need to be more looked at .In the picture it shows how how white people have some type of sticks and they would kill lations like beat them to death which is really painful and hurt to watch so i feel like the third picture needs to be more looked out .

I chose to talk about the third image because i feel like more people should know what happened in the zoot suit riots and what caused it. I think this event is important because of who were the victims and how recent this was. This even isnt ancient history this happened in 1943. The zoot suit riot was the product of sailors who felt that they were disrespected so they went out with makeshift weapons and sought to beat anyone wearing zoot suits. The main people those suits were latinos.

I choose image one because I found it crazy how a dollar bill can mean so many things from the past like how they are owned by different company's. Also how it can relate to the Lion and King and the legend that comes with it.

I pick the 1 dollar bill because people ignore the small details and it has so much information i never knew about its really interesting. People should learn more about it because its really interesting.

I choose the 3rd image because it clearly shows how low of respect white people used to have for the brown and black community. I don't know why they had that hate, it's like damn ya'll really not happy with yourselves that you have to go to others and hit them just because of their skin.
8/20/2021 01:49:25 pm
I chose the first image because theres things on the dollar bill that we either haven't noticed or ignored. i think it should be investigated to see where its been before it ended up with someone.

I choose the image number 2 because this high school is named after him. His name is Alain LeRoy Locke. Alain was a American writer, philosopher, an educator, and also did art. I think it's very cool that this high school is named after him.

I decided to analyzed the 4th image for the reason that were in a time where it's repeating.There's been people against/anti Pox/covid vaccines because there "unsafe".The misinformation could brainwash people into not getting the vaccines which could cost many lives.

I chose Image 2 of Alain LeRoy Locke. He attended and graduated Harvard University and was the first African American to receive the Rhodes Scholarship. Locke graduated with a doctorate in Philosophy. Although with all these accomplishments Locke was faced with many challenges. He was denied access to the university of Oxford due to his race and many other places.

I picked image one because of the images on it.Also i like the story behind it and how it corresponds with the Horus story thats what makes it significant to me.

Alain LeRoy Locke was a important member of the harlem Renaissance. he went to Harvard University in 1907 and graduated with a doctorate in philosophy.the reason why i fee like people should investigate more into alain locke is because our school is named after the guy. and because he is also a important part of our countries history.
8/20/2021 01:59:32 pm
I choose the zoot suit riot because i know that the incident started when young latinos went up to the sailors mocking them which caused the sailors to react in a violent way and take homemade weapons and beat any latino or afro latino wearing a zoot suit after a short while of after the attacks started the latinos and afro latinos would fight back and cause major riots across the area strangely enough the cops wouldnt arrest the sailor responsible of the attacks but will arrest the ones who were atttacked "for their safety" after a couple of days military forces had to come and stop the fihting

I chose the image that depicted the zoot suit riots, because latino people were being unfairly judged, punished and beaten for what they wore. I feel like people should investigate more into this topic because I feel its important for people to learn more about how unfairly people from not so long ago were treated.

I chose the 3 image because it wasn't okay for Latinos to get beaten by the navy for wearing certain clothes. This should be investigated because it represents an important in history for Latinos and still isnt talked about much.

I choose image 1 because it shows how many details there on money yet many people don't realize there is history behind it. That's why people should investigate more about the federal reserve note because it is really interesting that there is history behind money and we use money every day.
