Conduct research on a leader who has a major scholarly biography written on them.
You need 9-10 sources
The biography will need to be a “thick book” written by a scholar. You know a scholarly biography because there is an index in the back and the book is heavily footnoted or referenced. Besides the biography you are using, you’ll also need at least 9 other references. These references could be a TED Talk or another scholarly video, a reputable website reference (not Wikipedia), a scholarly blog or an interview of a scholarly expert (can be done in person or through e-mail).
