In Class Work: 
- Started discussion of "Stranger in the Village"

- Answer one of the following questions:

1) From the beginning, Hurston startles us: "I remember the very day that I became colored." Why does Hurston insist that one becomes colored? What happened on that day to make her so?

2) Each section of Hurston's essay explores a different possible identity, some based on skin color, others emphasizing history, culture, or gender. What does Hurston accomplish by such an approach?
