Transcript: Points of Interest For Discussion What is the point: Cinematography/ mise en scene Leitmotif History/ Colonial Ideology Identity What is the significance of Diouana asking for the mask back? Langford argues that we can use these systems to determine the identities of colonial and post-colonial subjects. Looking at the characters, do you agree? Are there any moments when characters move from one economic system to another? How can we interpret the last scene, when Monsieur returns the mask? Do you think cinematography of the movie being black and white emphasizes the microcosm? Give specific examples. How does the interior and the props (of being black and white) important? Do you agree with Langford that it emphasizes microcosm? Group One: Group Two: Group Three: Group Four: Summary: The article was written by Rachael Langford It focuses on the film La Noire de... that touches upon the issues of colonized and post-colonial identity Collaboration!!! Questions Questions Do you side with Mylkus and Armies or Langford pertaining to the voice over? How does Diouana form a sense of identity within the film? How is the act of suicide, the leitmotif of the mask, and themes of money, gift and production central to the film's confrontation with colonial and neo-colonial discourse on African identity In the beginning of the film, it showed a sequence of Diouana and monsieur driving from the port to the apartment.

Transcript: Black and White By: Collin Edwards MYP English 2 The 1950's and 60's was a time of struggle for racial equality. There were many tragedies from revolutions from African-Americans. This period is known as the "Civil Rights Movement". The book, Black and White by Larry Dane Brimmer, helps to tell the story of Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Bull Connor role in the movement. This book is about the confrontation between Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Eugene "Bull" Connor. Reverend Shuttlesworth was a pastor and a civil rights leader. He helped pave the way for reformation in the South. Bull Connor was the Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama during the Civil Rights movement. He sought to keep things the way they were, but Reverend Shuttlesworth believed differently. Bull did everything to get rid of him and his ways. Aha! Moment Fred Shuttlesworth had assassination attempts all throughout his life. There was an attempt on Christmas Day, 1956, at 9:40 p.m. He and others that were with him survived, this was one of the many attempts to kill him.The biggest thing that I learned from this book was that there was no concerns over background education in jobs. Bull Connor became the Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama without a high school diploma. Accuracy and Authenticity This story's facts are accurate and since the book is up to date because many otherr sources have the same information. The author does include significant facts in the side captions such as, Autherine Lucy: Tests the Brown v. Board of Education Decision. The author presents a balanced view of Facts in the captions help to support the generalization of African Americans struggle for freedom. Content and Perspective The purpose of this story is to inform the audience about critical events in the civil rights movement. The intended audience is for all people especially young people to inform them of key events in history. Style The message, text, and art are clear for the audience in this story. The level of difficulty in the story is average, but the author puts the reader in the book as one of the characters. Even though one of the main characters was a preacher, the story avoided being too didactic. "Black & White." By Larry Dane Brimner. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 Oct. 2012. <http://www.deepdiscount.com/book/Black-And-White-9781590787663>. Organization Gist Opinion I thought that the book, Black and White, was an interesting book. I thought the book provided me with more information on the civil rights movement. This book helped me to learn how Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth and Bull Connor contributed in the struggle for freedom. The structure of the book was one part tells the story of one of the main characters (Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth) and another character (Bull Connor) and their confrontation. The book does clarify the message throughout the text following additional information from the extension of text. There were very good pictures to explain the stories and the overall situation. The captions in the book helps the reader to clearly know what the reader is trying to describe. There was a normal format in all the selections. Illustrations and Format Introduction

Transcript: Threats The zebra's biggest threats are habitat loss due to ranching and farming and competition for water with livestock. They are also hunted for their skins. In the range of the Grevy's zebra, where survival of young is linked to the availability of forage, climate change is exacerbating droughts on already-degraded rangeland. Droughts also force the animals to congregate at remaining water sources, increasing the incidence of disease transmission. http://www.defenders.org/zebra/basic-facts https://www.google.com/ www.answers.com Black and White and Black and White By: Jasmine Bock Population Overall, plains zebras number at around 750,000. Historically, there were over 15,000 Grevy's zebras. However, there are only about 2,500 remaining today. There are 600-700 cape mountain zebras and around 800-1300 Hartmann's mountain zebras in the wild. References Range Plains zebra are found on the savannas from Sudan to northern Zimbabwe in eastern Africa. Grevy's zebras are now mostly restricted to parts of northern Kenya. Mountain zebras occur in southwestern Africa with cape mountain zebras in South Africa and Hartmann's mountain zebras in Namibia and Angola. Diet Zebras are herbivorous and primarily eat a variety of grasses. They are also known to eat shrubs, herbs, twigs, leaves and bark. Zebra Reproduction Mating Season: Year round and based on species. Gestation: 12-13 months. Litter size: 1 foal. Zebra foals are born with brown and white stripes as opposed to black and white stripes. Mares generally keep all other zebras away for 2-3 days until her foal recognizes her by sight, voice and smell. _______________ Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Perissodactyla Family: Equidae sub family :Equine Genus: Equus species: Perissodactyla Zebras are in The Mammamilia Kingdom "Mammals" http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/sciencefacts/animals/zebra.html Zebra's are a very intresting creature. Every one of them is different in some way. It is unusual how their are about 750,000 zebra's, but none of them look the same. It is also unusual how zebra's stand up when they sleep. Zebra's are a very unique creature. Behavior Zebras as very social animals and live in large groups called 'harems.' Plains and mountain zebras live in harems that are made up of one stallion and up to six mares and their young, while Grevy's zebras come together as groups for short periods of time. Sometimes herds come together to form temporary groups of up to 30 members. Zebras sleep standing up, and only when they are in groups that can warn them of danger. If they spot a predator, they will bark or whinny loudly to warn the others in the group.

It's all grey, shades of grey." I thought this book was pretty good. i did not like how the author got Thomas and Denyse to kiss all the time becuse that made the book romantic. opinion La Fin -Lamar Eric Walters I think that this passage means black and white are two different skin colors but you shouldn't judge somebody on what color there skin is. You should look at what there character is and look behind appearance. You should be a friend to everybody no matter what there race, religion, gender, or skin color is.
