Look at that! All of a sudden we are staring down the last full week of the semester. This week is our last week of readings, our last week of prep sheets, and our last week of in-class discussions. [You can pause now to weep.]
We still have one exciting (and full) week to get through before we cross that finish line next week. This Tuesday we will read just a bit more (chapters 5-7) in the book Rethinking the Asian American Movement and an article on the Third World Women’s Alliance. That piece is provided to you as DCR 15. We will use both of the readings in an in-class discussion, followed by a short lecture.
For Thursday we have our final course reading: James Baldwin’s famous 1963 letter to his nephew, “My Dungeon Shook.” It is from Baldwin’s powerful book The Fire Next Time, and it is provided to you as DCR 16. We will use it to have an open class discussion on some of the persistent themes of our class. We’ll close out the day with a final mini-lecture
I want to also draw your attention to the assignment sheet for the semester-long class project. A detailed description of Part 3 can be found there. Resources to help you with that assignment can be found here, here, and even here. (These links are all the same links from the original assignment description above.)
