You are to type your answers directly onto the exam (much like the multiple choice assignments you complete in this class). Read the individual section directions carefully. Sections 1 and 2 require original answers in paragraph form.
If you cite material, please use a simple citation (Walker, page number).
Add space as needed to answer each question. There is no need to rewrite the question but number as I have.
No late assignments accepted.

But he had been forced to leave because of the hated system and now he wondered who in the country hated colored people more, the slavers, the poor whites, or those northern white people who were not abolitionists.”
7. “Naw. I told him we was living in the country, and when he asked on whose land, I told him we was in the woods and the river bottom and wasn’t nobody nearbouts to us with no land.What he say then?He act kinda satisfied, leastwise he didn’t say nothing else.”
8. “It was too late. Innis Brown knew this woman, who had stood so much outrage, had a wisdom and a touching humility that he could never cease to admire. It was more than her practical intelligence, or her moral fortitude; more than the fundamental decency and innate dignity that marked her character as an unusual one in the face of both these men that night….Peasant and slave,
unlettered and untutored, she was nevertheless the best true example of the motherhood of her race, an ever present assurance that nothing could destroy a people whose sons had come from her loins.”
