assignment for wednesday, nov. 8
read pp. 11-16 in baraka

vocab: albeit, euphemism, eradicate

discussion questions:
does baraka back up his agrument on p. 13 that more africanisms are retained in other parts of the new world? does this alter his argument? could he be correct?
(note: baraka fails to back up a lot of his arguments...keep you eyes open)
why were religion and the arts the only aspects of african culture to survive? are there others?
why was the american-born slave so valuable to both whites and african-born slaves?
