Race and Identity in America

Race in America Reflection


Take a few minutes to write down your thoughts about race. As you write, consider the following questions.

  • What do we mean when we talk about race in general?
  • In “The Wife of His Youth,” how does this meeting between two characters, both of whom are African American, express a great divide between races in America?
  • How does the meeting express the divide within particular racial or ethnic groups?
