Black Boy Expository Essayprompt
  • The 1950s and the 1960s were years of turmoil and
    change, especially for minorities. In a five
    paragraph expository essay discuss some of the
    various historical events that were occurring
    during Richard Wrights lifetime. Using the two
    documentaries we watched in class, Viva La Causa
    and Childrens March, analyze how minorities were
    treated during the 1950s and 1960s. In one of
    the body paragraphs, list evidence from Black Boy
    (at least two quotes), that show how Richard was
    treated unjustly.

  • the Works Cited section is located at the end of
    your paper, and lists all of the sources you
    cited in your text. For every entry, you must
    determine the Medium of Publication. Most entries
    will likely be listed as Print or Web sources,
    but other possibilities may include Film, CD-ROM,
    Radio or DVD. Writers are no longer required to
    provide URLs for Web entries. However, if your
    instructor or publisher insists on them, include
    them in angle brackets (lt gt) after the entry and
    end with a period. For long URLs, break lines
    only at slashes. For more details in setting up
    your Words Cited page, please refer to pages 36
    and 37 in your District Writing Handbook.
