PART 2 2 Part 2 – Final Project The movie I chose to work on for my final project is The Color Purple written by Alice Walker. The scene I chose to analyze was the one when Celie makes up her mind to tell her husband, Mr. Albert Harris, that she is leaving him. The scene plays out at Sophia’s sister Odessa’s house. From the way everyone is dressed it looked like it was a Sunday dinner after church. Everyone is there, Shug, Shug’s husband Grady, Celie, Celie’s husband Albert Harris, Harpo, Odessa, Sophia, Squeaks(Mary Agnes), Albert’s father, and the children. Albert sits at the head of the table and Shug sit next to him. Celie sat middle ways of the table opposite to the side Shug was sitting on. After a few minutes, Shug leans over and tells Albert that it is time for them to go and that Celie is coming with them. Albert is so shocked with the news that Shug had to repeat what she said to him. Analysis When Shug spoke to Albert, she used her words and she also leaned in close and touched his arm. She used both single and multiple channels of communication to communicate with Albert. The touching of his arm showed sympathy for what he was about to hear, and this form of communication is called haptics. “Haptics is the study of touch” (Hahn, Laura, Paynton, & Scott, 2016, p. 1). The leaning in showed that she was trying to be discreet and not involve everyone in their conversation and she used her lowered voice to tell him what she wanted him to know. Leaning in close is a form of proxemics. “Proxemics is space and how we use it”

    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.
