I want you to do two things in this essay. One, explain how Brown uses the theme in his book. How does it contribute to his overall purpose? Two, discuss what you discover from your research. How are we affected by this topic in real life? This is where you go beyond Brown’s memoir and discuss your topic in the larger community. Put the authors in subject position, explaining what they say about your topic. Why should we care about this? Develop your discussion in detail, and cite your sources (in MLA format) both in the body of your essay and in your list at the end.
Your essay should be six pages or more, typed, double spaced. Please organize it effectively and develop it fully. Explain why your topic is important, why you care about it, and why we should care about it.
