So, the A-Z blog challenge is over. I can't believe I did 26 dedicated (minus Sundays) days writing to a letter. Definitely a trial to stick to one thing. True you didn't see all of them because they are on my speaklowericanthearyou.blogspot.com site.
I thought I would share a little more of America's multi-racial history--The Z's have the stage:

ZIMBARDO (born March 23, 1933) is an American psychologist, best-known for his Stanford prison experiment and bestselling introductions to psychology. he conducted the famed Stanford prison experiment, in which 24 normal college students were randomly assigned to be prisoners or guards in a mock prison located in the basement of the psychology building at Stanford . The students quickly began acting out their roles, with "guards" becoming sadistic and the "prisoners" showing extreme depression and passivity.The experiment led to theories about the importance of the social situation in individual psychology that are still controversial today.
