A. Analyze how the primary text exposes the contradiction of traditional institution.
B. Offers a counter-hegemonic response to the ideologies that dominate these institutions
The primary text will be: a manifesto (attached)
“The Black Panther Platform: What We Want, What We Believe” (1966)
The content of the paper:
1. Annotate the relevant elements in the text.
2. How do these elements work together to produce meanings that support, resist, or generally complicate ideologies that dominate these spaces?
3. Different views, voices, and structures can be at play in the same text, so elements may represent one set of ideologies while other elements may represent alternative ideologies (this produces contradiction).
4. Convince readers that your interpretation is sustained by textual evidence.
