For my second installment in this series I thought we would take a quick look at Ann DeWitt’sBlack Confederate Soldiers site. It’s one of the more recent sites to appear and it is growing in popularity. Feel free to suggest websites that might be worth exploring at a later date. I apologize for the sound quality. I am still playing around with a couple of programs so hopefully things will improve.
This post is the first in a short series of videos that will focus on some of the more popular black Confederate websites. I decided to do this as a follow-up to my recent New York Times editorial in which I discuss the importance of properly assessing information gathered Online. We begin with the Petersburg Express, which in my opinion is the best example of many of the problems that you will find on these sites. This is a beginner’s guide, but I hope that it is helpful to those people who are struggling with some of the basic questions of media literacy. Unfortunately, I had to rush a bit at the end. Here is the link to Whois, which you can use to find information about the source of the website.
