Final Project for Clio 2

Here’s the link:

I have a question about the images on my website. It’s hard to tell, but I used Photoshop. For instance, the copy of Plecker’s letter, the 1924 Act, and the constitution of ASCOA. All these images were scanned so I fix the dark and fuzzy areas that appeared by scanning the documents. I hope its easy to read now. But then, I didn’t know how much I am able to change these images. Can I delete the red stamps and lines that says, “University of Virginia”(where I got the sources)? Because these lines can be bothering while looking at the image. For now, I used the dodge tool and make it look less appear.

Please, please pray for me that my laptop will be fixed by Monday. I’ve been living without a laptop the entire week and stuck at a computer lab on campus every day to finish my final assignments. The labs that has Dreamweaver and Photoshop closes early and I have to leave campus before 10pm to catch the shuttle and Metro. Otherwise, I won’t be able to get back home. So, I only had a limited amount of time to work on this website. Don’t expect anything wonderful for this week! And, poor Amanda. I made her ftp my files and images like billion of times!  Looking forward to see everyone’s website.

Commented on Kirk and Amanda’s blog.


  1. It looks really good, Mika–and I’m very impressed you’ve been able to pull this together considering the technical issues you’ve been having. I can only imagine how difficult this must be without your own laptop.

  2. Way to go, Mika! I think you did a great job with the image placement on the inside pages, but I would like to see a larger text size for the H2 on the main page. I think you pulled this together well and I hope your computer gets fixed soon. They always crash at the worst possible times!

  3. Mika,

    I think your site looks great so far! The header image is a nice background and ties in the blue and light tan colors of the pages.
    You might consider changing the color of the menu, or moving it to beneath the header. I do like the red color of your title and page titles.
    The images are nice and complement the text well. I think you’ve done a great job, and I wouldn’t have suspected you didn’t have a working computer!

    Sidenote- Have you heard of/read Jacquelyn Jones’ new book, A Dreadful Deceit: The Myth of Race from the Colonial Era to Obama’s America? I read it for a class this semester, and she discusses the changing definitions of race, especially for those of African descent. She talks a little about American Indians, but I think you would like it!
