African American Literature


1. After reading the poetry of Baraka and Giovanni, discuss the overt style, subjects, and theme (s) exemplified in their poetry.

2. Alice Walker is generally not included in The Black Arts Movement period in literature, yet her short story “Everyday Use” was published in 1970. With this in mind, discuss the ways Walker reflects the concerns or issues of the Black Arts Movement in her story and why is it important to note this representation?
