So the other day I mentioned this book, VOX by Christina Dalcher, that depicted a world where women can only say 100 words a day. This book outlines the fact that the time is now and that we should not wait to stand up for our rights or wait for someone else to do it. I recommend this book for anyone that loves a dystopian novel and a quick, but juicy read. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/37796866-vox this is the information page on GoodReads.

Prelude to Class on Wednesday on James Baldwin: He debates at Cambridge Uni. in 1965 on “Is the American Dream at the expense of the American Negro?”
Even though the entire clip is nearly 1 hour long, I have picked out where Baldwin speaks from 14:10 to 38:00

I wished for this clip to serve a general purpose to study his character, mannerisms and his deep thoughts behind his philosophy on the African American struggle. The cool thing is that this clip is also video recorded, not only audio, so we can better observe him.
As mentioned in class, Farewell to Manzanar is a book that explores the atrocities of Japanese internment camps through the eyes of a seven year old Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston. The book is deeply fascinating as it portrays the same sense of hopelessness and anxiety of those who were unjustly interned at the Manzanar camp.
