Today we started off class discussing what segregation looks like today. We wrote it down on this handout: the-problem-we-all-live-with-worksheet
That work sheet also has you looking at three of our over-arching questions for the semester:
a) Where does literature reveal a disconnect between our words, actions and values as Americans?
b) What should the American government take away from American literature?
c) Is there a universal American experience or struggle?
Then we listened to “The Problem We All Live With” part 1. You can listen to it here: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/562/the-problem-we-all-live-with and you can find a transcript here: https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/562/transcript
Please listen to part 1 on your own if you missed class today. We’ll listen to part 2 tomorrow (and connect it to the questions afterwards).
