Fall; Grades 11–12
Taught by: St. Andrew’s Episcopal School
This semester seminar is designed as a survey of literature that focuses on expressions of oppression. From protest to processing, persecuted populations have created many mechanisms to give voice to their suffering. Books, memoirs, songs, short stories, and documentaries will all be used to discover the power of personal experience. Additionally, the class will explore the ways in which oppressed voices have been instruments in forcing positive social change throughout the twentieth century.
