Project #48676 - Analysis

Oral Traditions

Creative Final Project

 

For the final project students will make a contribution to oral traditions.

Students must choose a poem, speech, sermon, scene, or song to present to the class in an oral interpretation.  This choice must have been published between 1492-1965 by an African-American artist (author, writer, etc.).

 

Your choice should reflect one the major themes discussed in class and must also include racism, justice and power.  Students must commit their choice to memory—be off book—and submit a 3-5 page analysis of the chosen work.  Students have the option of augmenting their choice with their own works but that choice must be justified in the written analysis.

 

The written analysis must contain:

1.    Why did you choose this work? Writer? Artist?

2.    Why did you choose this form? What is your inspiration?

3.    What era was this piece created?

4.    What era does it address?

5.    What situation/context does this piece address?

6.    How does it relate to at least one literary work we discussed in class?

(based on the book we read :the color purple or the song of solomon)

7.    How does your choice relate to at least one of the eras we discussed in class?

8.    How does the content of the piece reflect the era in which it was written?

9.    What is the social/political context?

10.How was it received at the time it was written and delivered?  If you are unable to find any information on its reception, how do you believe it was received? By the African American community and American society as a whole?

 

There is no minimum on how long your selection should be but consider your choice carefully as it should reflect your understanding of the course—a comprehensive presentation on the impact of the literature and its social function
