I’m enrolled in African American Literature this semester (my final semester) and I’m so in love with the reading material (Passing by Nella Larsen, works by Charles Chesnutt, Autobiography of Malcolm X.) I’ve decided to do my senior thesis on African American Women Writers of the 19th century. I was told that this will be the very first in Fontbonne history and I want it to be perfect. On another note I’m thinking about maybe looking into teaching African American Literature. As I said, I’m so in love and the other literature classes I’ve taken never scratched the surface.
I’m taking this as an Independent Study because originally the class was canceled, and has been canceled every other time that I’ve signed up. This class has opened my mind and allowed me to be exposed to writers that I’ve never read before now. The reading material is what makes this class so amazing. Knowledge is truly power.
