Write an essay comparing Martin Luther King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail and his “I Have a Dream” speech. Same author, same concerns? Or does he present the issues differently in the two texts? Does he use similar imagery or different to get his point across? To write this essay, you must analyze the Letter first since it was written in April 1963 and then turn to his “Dream” speech in the second half of the essay. What is his overall purpose in the texts? How/why is the Dream speech more optimistic than the letter? (Note: if you use the term “Negro,” you need to use it in quotes. It was the appropriate term used in King’s day; however, today it’s seen as derogatory and racist”)2. Write an essay comparing the use of racial and ethnic stereotypes in Hurston’s “How it Feels to Be Colored Me” and Staples, “Just Walk on By.” What does it mean to be “colored”? (Note: if you use the term “colored,” you need to use it in quotes. It was a term used in Hurston’s day, but today it is derogatory and racist). How do stereotypes form the identity of the person of color and follow him/her throughout his/her life? Can someone resist these stereotypes or are they always/already defined by the color of their skin. Does Staples have the same or different view as Hurston about his blackness? Is he more defined by his blackness than Hurston? Is it different because of gender? Does he succumb to stereotypes or fight against them?
