Please read the instructions. and follow them.

I am uploading a pdf file that you should use to write and to read.

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 in making your points. No outside sources will be necessary for this paper. 


Paper guidelines:

Papers must use proper MLA citation style. See the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) site for help with MLA: (Links to an external site.). In addition to MLA, papers should be formatted as follows:

  • 12-point font
  • Times New Roman
  • 1” inch margins
  • Double-spaced
  • Sources cited in your paper
  • Works cited page
  • Page numbers and your last name in the upper right-hand corner of every page
  • 5-7 pages in length (this means at least 5 full pages of text, not 4.5 or 4.75)
  • --------------------------------------------------------

Determination of Grades:

Papers receiving a final grade in the “A” range will be, simply put, exemplary. That is, they will be well written in maintaining coherence from point-to-point, sentence-to-sentence, paragraph-to-paragraph. These papers will have a strong and clearly stated thesis, as well as strong transitions from one idea to the next. The “A” paper will have rare to no grammatical errors in spelling, punctuation, citation, etc. In my experience, conferencing with me about drafts of your paper before the due date make achieving this more likely.
