Paragraphs 2 – 3: Consider the works we have read, and their lasting value. Discuss one aspect of one work[“Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/wooda/2B-HUM/Readings/Baldwin-Sonnys-Blues.pdf ] – a character, a setting, a mind-blowing passage – and why it resonates with you. What are some of the lines or moments that you find especially insightful or astute? How does it reflect the concerns in our world?
