African American Studies Final Paper

This paper is designed to provide you with an opportunity to practice your close reading and argumentative skills. Choose one text assigned this term–not the same text you wrote about for your midterm–and analyze how that text treats one of the key concepts discussed in class, e.g.,

****MY TOPIC IS Freedom*******

This is an argumentative paper, meaning that I will be looking for the presence of a strong thesis supported by textual evidence from the assigned text. If you would like to bring in secondary sources, you may (be sure to cite them), however, they are not required.

Be sure to provide textual evidence for all your claims.
Please use MLA or Chicago-style footnotes to cite your sources.
