After reading Equiano’s “Interesting Narrative” and Omi and Winant’s “Racial Formation”, think about how Equiano’s autobiography might fit in or challenge their historical narrative about race coming out of the Enlightenment period. Cite both of the articles in your answer. Do you think that race is a social construct? Is the idea of race something we should do without or is it necessary to our society? Explain why or why not? Based on what you learned from these lessons, what else could you find in your life that is a social construct? Why do you think this is a social construct? (Examples: blondes are dumb, Greek life people act a certain way, women are weaker than men). Your answer should be 400-500 words and is due before class on Thursday.
