As an extension to this assignment, students or instructors can find additional materials from 1970 or create a timeline of events including things that happened on the Duke campus, in Durham, in North Carolina, the United States, and internationally in 1970.
These sources are all specific to Duke University's history and were published in 1970.
This activity highlights selected primary documents from the year 1970 across the Rubenstein Library’s collections representing a variety of viewpoints, issues, and historical events related to women’s liberation and feminist activism. Students will closely examine one document with a series of guiding questions in order to discuss and compare materials. Students will choose an issue represented in one of the items and work together to identify ways to research more about that topic.
