After reading the book Coming of Age In Mississippi, by Anne Moody
, write a 5 page essay on the following questions:
Part I: How and what did Anne Moody
learn about the social significance of race? In other words, when, and how, did she "come of age?" What were the influences in her life that prompted her to become politically active? Speculate why she responded differently from those around her (her peers, her mother, other adults).
Part II: Choose two passages from the book (in whatever length) that struck you in some way - surprised, saddened, appalled, moved, or intrigued you, and write a response to each one a couple of paragraphs or so in length. Do not copy the passages in your paper, just cite the appropriate page(s) from Moody
. NOTE: one passage must come from part four, and one passage from one of the other three parts.
Part III: Having read Anne Moody
's book would you have become involved in the civil rights movement? (keep this brief, a paragraph). Of course, this section is subjective and will depend on your race, ethnicity, gender, class, and place of residence. I just want you to place yourself back in this time period and really think about what your reaction to the movement may have been. (I am a white, middle-class male. I have always lived in a good part of town)
the only source to be used is the book Coming of Age In Mississippi, by Anne Moody
This essay needs to be double spaced, 12 pt font, 1" margins (use: Times, Times New Roman, or Palatino), and needs to have page numbers
