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?

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.

Black and White

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
