last night

Hey!! I thought last night went really well, brought up some interesting points. I liked the quote about the emancipation of the black psyche, which got me thinking to Song of Solomon. Milkman becomes "emancipated" in a way when he finally does something by himself- he looks for his family in the South, by himself, and finally is alone and independent. He becomes emancipated because he has something to do. Maybe it's the same thing, that with the non-violent protests (sit-ins and such) that the black psyche became emancipated because they, like Milkman, finally had something to do. They had something that was working that they were able to participate in. Connection?? Thoughts, anybody
