Additionally, your short essay should follow the requirements below:
1. Explicitly state what you are attempting to do in the beginning of your essay. Include a clear purpose/aim.

The Du Bois section in Chapter 12 of the text is also important in addressing certain criteria. Other relevant scholarly sources are ok as well. PLEASE USE CHAPTER 12 of the REQUIRED COURSE TEXTBOOK.
