Topics in Carribean African American History and Culture

Choose one quote from Pao by Kerry Young and write a paper (3 pages, typed, double-spaced, 12 point font) on what that quote means to you in the context of the class. I have only included the first few lines of each quote with the understanding that I mean for you to read the previous paragraphs, follow the quote at least to the end of its paragraph, and to the beginning of the one after that, if it is relevant. Do not limit your discussion to only the quote itself, but use it as a starting point to highlight themes of the book that resonate. **Class context/discussions: Colonialism, trended struggles of blacks in Caribbean countries and the U.S, masculinity in caribbean cultures and it’s intersection with sexuality, race relations between blacks of that caribbean country and others such as Chinese as in the case of Pao in Pao by Kerry Young. One of the two sources has to be the book. 1. “My whole life has been spent being white for Cicely to stop her feeling ashamed, and being black for Cicely to stop her feeling alone….”(Fay, Chapter 17, pg 115) 2. “Killing your neighbor not going solve unemployment and all the misery that go with that. Their enemy not their neighbor….”(Pau, Chapter 23, pg 157 and Chapter 26, end) 3. [Xiuquan’s letter to Pau in chapter 30, pg 207] 4. “I felt sort of honored. Foolish, wasn’t it?…A grown man who came here and captured something young and innocent, something in its infancy, and he took what he wanted from it and when he was done he left us to fend for ourselves…”(Merleen, Chapter 36, pg 235-236) 5.”You want talk ’bout revolution, but this was never your revolution. You never been poor, not so poor you hungry; you never had to find yourself a job or put a roof over your head….”(Gloria, Chapter 38, pg 245)
