Because he loves superheroes and wants to be everyone’s hero. And he thinks it will make him stand out and help him be himself. 

 

2. What factors have contributed to the popularity of extreme senior portraits?

High school seniors no longer want to graduate with a regular yearbook picture. They want their photos to reflect their true personalities. And they want the photo shoot experience to make them feel like a famous person – or a superhero – for a day.

IV. Post-reading 

 The Civil Rights Movement (1954-1968)

The Civil Rights Movement or 1960s Civil Rights Movement includes social movements in the United States whose goals were to end racial segregation and discrimination (种族隔离和歧视) against African Americans and to secure (保证) legal recognition and federal protection of the citizenship rights listed in the Constitution (宪法) and federal law.

 

Black American athletes protested during a 1968 Mexico Olympics medal ceremony. 

At the Summer Olympic Games in 1968 two black athletes made a silent protest for equality. These two men were Tommie Smith and John Carlos, gold and bronze medallists in the 200 meter run. They planned a silent protest on the medal stand. Smith wore a black glove on his right hand and Carlos wore a black glove on his left hand. At the time the national anthem was sung they bowed their heads and raised their gloved hands in the air. Smith represented black power and Carlos represented black unity. Reaction to their protest was quick; they were suspended from the team and banned from the Olympic village.  

 

The Emancipation Proclamation(解放黑人奴隶宣言)

Issued by Abraham Lincoln on Jan 1, 1863, it proposed that all slaves should be forever free. Although it did not end slavery, it changed the basic character of the Civil War. The North was now fighting to create a new Union without slavery. It also authorized the recruitment (征兵) of African Americans as Union soldiers. By the end of the Civil War, about 180,000 African Americans had served in the Union army and 18,000 in the navy.
