For my final project, I decided to make a StoryMap to show the timeline of racism in the NFL. My goal was to synthesize sources to create a single cohesive timeline. I started with a broad historical overview to provide a background for the more recent events. Then, I discuss the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick and the Black Lives Matter protests. Finally, I end with a discussion of the current league issues in management and coaching side.
Overall, I enjoyed creating this project, but it was hard to compress information into a digital timeline. I tried to compress it as much as possible, but I think the timeline is the best way to put together large amounts of information. The StoryMap was beneficial because it created natural breaks that would have otherwise been large paragraphs of text. The use of pictures and videos also helped provide information a traditional paper could not.
I hope you enjoy my project!
