You should choose between these two questions and craft the assignment with one of them as a prompt. In general, however, your response should focus on the ways the assigned monograph, novel/poem collection, and film compare, that is how they are different and similar as a representation of the 1960s and/or what each offers for illuminating the particular topic and its related themes.
Your paper should be 5 pages in length, draw on all relevant course materials. Any references to books or movies should use the format explained in the citation guide (also attached to the syllabus).
One suggestion for getting a handle on the multi-part question you choose to answer is to develop a thesis statement (main argument) that responds to the main part of the question and in doing that also allows you to address the other parts. A strong argument of this kind will serve as an anchor for everything else you want and need to say.
A ? How do the two books, Turner?s Sitting In and Nikki Giovanni?s The Collected Poems, as well as the movie, Guess Who?s Coming to Dinner, demonstrate the way the black civil rights movement changed during the 1960s? What significant changes do they show? What was causing those changes?
B ? How do the two books, Turner?s Sitting In and Nikki Giovanni?s The Collected Poems, as well as the movie, Guess Who?s Coming to Dinner, reveal the growing importance of identity to black civil rights activists in the 1960s? How were concerns about identity in line with the civil rights agenda of the 1950s and early 1960s? In what ways did they conflict with those earlier activist efforts?
