Re: [Channel-talklitconversations] Workshop 6 Video Discussion

I also agree, the discussions really do bring so much
more awareness of the meaning behind the readings.

In the Theme For English B by Langston Hughes, I felt
a sense anger and sincerity in his words. I believe
he wanted to show that even though there is a
difference in race and culture in out country, there
is also a sameness in the fact that we are all
Americans. The words he used in his poem were very
clever and he used with with panache. He was able to
tell the truth about his past and his present as to
what it was like for him to be in the minority in his
school. Also, I enjoyed the the up and down movement
that was pointed out by the presenters.

When I first read the poem Revolutionary Petunias by
Alice Walker, I had difficulty understanding it. The
wording was unclear to me. But after watching the
discussion I gained greater understanding of the
many dimensions of the poem. The poem dealt with love
of protection of her family, violence, and seeking
justice. I can't say it was one of better writings,
but it was certainly thought provoking.
