Use the OED to look up any three words from any of the African American or Latino authors on the syllabus in the last few weeks and and report on how the words’ histories help you to make sense of the text.
The authors are the following;
1. James Baldwin If Black English Isn’t a Language Then Tell Me What Is?
2.The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Waoby Junot Dias
3.Zora Neale Hurston Their Eyes Were Watching God
4.Toni Morrison Beloved;
5.Paul Laurence Dunbar A Negro Love Song and When Malindy Sings.
You can pick any words from any of these authors. This is an English by the way not sociology. I am willing to $20.00. 500+ words.
