We finished our conversation regarding the four pieces we’ve read/watched by today (McIntosh, Fortgang, Du Bois, and Stevenson) regarding our homework from yesterday. Second hour, since they had begun the conversation yesterday, was able to read this 2012 Alcoff piece titled “In Arizona, Censoring Questions About Race,” that will help frame our unit goals regarding questions we, as students, should want/be able to ask. First hour will read it tomorrow.
We then delved into a bit of history surrounding African American Theater in the United States from 1821-now. I also introduced to you a bit about our playwright, Fences author, August Wilson. We will continue these introductions tomorrow before/after our conversation regarding Coates’ “The Case for Reparations” you are to have read for tomorrow.
You are reading Act I of Fences for Thursday. I will give you books first thing tomorrow.
