Unit 5 Writing Assignment
Choose ONE of the below prompts :
1.Gates and McKay write that to “tell a black truth to white power” was a goal of many African-American writers during the Black Arts Era (1845). Analyze two characters from any fiction we’ve read this semester. Summarize how they reach that goal of “tell[ing] a black truth to white power,” using terms specific to literary analysis, i.e., tone, irony, symbolism, figurative language, foils, dichotomies, word choice, dialect, protagonist, and antagonist to mention a few possibilities. Remember to quote and properly credit through MLA format specific phrases from the work that you select as illustrations of your claims and ideas. As always, consult the Purdue OWL or other online sources regarding proper citation format. In responding to this prompt, you may want to ask yourself the following questions: What is meant by the phrase “black truth”? How could “truth” be something different for blacks and whites? What elements of the assigned fiction distinguish them as written by African-American writers? How do the writers’ expressions of characters compare and contrast? Remember – These are only examples of questions to which you might respond. Feel free to think of your own!
2. This unit, you read the first African-American drama in this course. Compare and contrast the drama form to that of fiction and poetry as different genres with the same platform of expressing African-American concerns. Remember to quote and properly credit through MLA format specific phrases from the work that you select as illustrations of your claims and ideas. Don’t forget that in citing drama, we cite acts, scenes and line numbers, not page numbers. As always, consult the Purdue OWL or other online sources regarding proper citation format. However, because the lines are not numbered in your text, you may omit that number, just for the purposes of this class. In responding to this prompt, you may want to ask yourself the following questions: What drawbacks to reader understanding does drama produce i.e., lack of a narrator to present exposition and comment on the action; lack of character thoughts, etc.? What advantages to reader understanding does drama offer? How might reactions of a live audience to a dramatic presentation contrast with that of an unseen audience, like you as a reader, to fiction or poetry read from a book? Why might Hansberry or another artist view drama as the best form for transmitting their message? After answering such questions, use your newly discovered ideas to apply to Hansberry’s drama. Remember – These are only examples of questions to which you might respond. Feel free to think of your own!
3.American literature is a literature filled with a desire to find and define identity. Early on, we see European colonists working to form an identity outside of where they came from. During the American Revolution, the Preamble to the Constitution is a document that works to define American identity as well. From Equiano to Douglass, from DuBois to Locke, from Hurston to Hansberry, the marginalized African American authors and literature take part in this very American theme of concerned with identity formation. Compare and contrast African American identity from two different time periods–or–compare and contrast how at least two writers from Units 4 & 5 work to refine/define identity. Remember to quote and properly credit through MLA format specific phrases from the work that you select as illustrations of your claims and ideas. Don’t forget that in citing drama, we cite acts, scenes and line numbers, not page numbers. As always, consult the Purdue OWL or other online sources regarding proper citation format. However, because the lines are not numbered in your text, you may omit that number, just for the purposes of this class.
