The purpose of the Historical Interview is to demonstrate that you can use your knowledge of the historical documents and the historical context of the documents. The
Historical Interview is an example of your use of historical imagination, since you will write a fictional interview between you and a historical person. You must
write the in a dialogue format so that both you and the author are speaking. Do not write the interview so that only you or only the author speaks. Not only will you
demonstrate your knowledge of the documents and the context, but you will demonstrate the relevance of the documents and the context to challenges that we face today.
Please be creative and use your imagination.

You may choose any of the authors except Acosta, Bradford, and Byrd.
