Response Paper 2


For this paper, discuss how your understanding of African American identity and culture has evolved as a result of this class. Discuss how two of the writers we have discussed this semester have impacted your thinking on Black existence in the United States. What specific effects have these writers and their works had on how you think about the United States and its relationship to racial constructs? Draw on your experiences, class discussions, etc. in demonstrating the evolution in your thinking concerning the connections between the US and African American identity. You will need to provide close readings of the writers’ texts you choose in order to make these connections clear. Use direct quotations and examples from the primary texts found in the Norton Anthology and novels their eyes were watching god in making your points. No outside sources will be necessary for this paper.
