Order Details
You will also have to read and draft a 3? to 4-paged Analytical Essay on The Autobiography of Malcolm X, as told to Alex Haley. This essay will require you to assess the course of Malcolm X’s evolving views on questions of racial identity and justice through the lens of William E. Cross’s Nigresence Model (a Black Psychological theory that we will be discussing during the opening week of class.) In writing this essay, you will argue which of the five stages of the Nigresence Model that Malcolm X was in at the end of the book, and describe how he got to that stage. Moreover, you will explain why you do not think his life fit into any stages you think he did not make it into. For example, if you argue that Malcolm X made it to stage 3, you will need to show how he went through stages 1 and 2 in getting to stage 3, and you will need to show why his life did not fit into stages 4 and 5. However, if you strongly disagree with the validity of Cross’s Nigresence Model, your essay will need to show how the presentation of Malcolm X’s life that is provided in The Autobiography of Malcolm X shows the limitations of Cross’s Nigresence Model. This analytical essay will be worth up to 100 points.
