Day 3 Writing Activity
Open up a group discussion about situations of being or feeling discriminated against because of age, sex or race. Talk about an unfairness or injustice which has been brought against you.
Discuss and then write about an unfairness or injustice which has been brought against you. Perhaps the unfairness was in the form of a conversation such as Janie had with Mrs. Turner. Maybe the unfairness was in overhearing insults as Tea Cake did when Mrs. Turner talked with Janie. How was the situation resolved? How did you deal with it?
