Black and Blue
In Black and Blue, Garnette Cadogan organizes his essay, in part, around a comparison between the experience of walking the streets in America (New Orleans and New York) and walking the streets in Jamaica (Kingston). Write an essay in which you identify the key differences between the two experiences that Cadogan emphasizes and analyze how Cadogan uses these differences to make a larger argument about what it means to navigate public space as a black man. Underline Thesis and Topic Sentences!!!!!!
Make sure your essay is guided by a thesis that directly and specifically answers all parts of the prompt. Your paragraphs should start with topic sentences that support the thesis statement, and your arguments should be backed by specific evidence (quotes and examples) from the text. Please also make sure to proofread your essay for grammar and spelling.
