Malik 1 Sara Malik Professor Choflet AASP 202 02/24/2017 Journal Entry #1 (pgs. 81-101 Levine) In his book Black Culture and Black Consciousness (pgs 81-101) , Levine discusses black folk tales and their significance. He argues that even though folk tales are very important in understanding the slave culture in the nineteenth and twentieth century, debates have been continuously geared towards finding the origins of these folk tales rather than analyzing the information they present and the role it played. He comes to the point that the content of the folk tales should be carefully studied so that we may gain more insight into a time period that has very few written records. Levine delves into the content of multiple folk tales from a wide variety of sources to better understand the conditions that the slaves endured and the way they perceived the world around them. The folk tales include theories of how the black man was created to life lessons.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
