To what degree do the sentiments expressed by Langston Hughes in
his essay "Cowards from the Colleges" still apply to the atmosphere surrounding
the education of African Americans at Morgan today? Do the school's
stated mission and actual practices support or contradict Hughes's claims?
Be as specific as possible, taking into consideration as many different
aspects of your experience of Morgan up until this point as possible:
residence halls, dining halls, classrooms, administration (deans, president,
Montebello, Honors program), etc.. You may refer to any of the readings
we have had so far, including Washington, Du Bois, and Hughes. Please,
however, be as clear as possible in your citation of any sources.
You are also encouraged to be as specific as possible in the details you
introduce to support your claims.
