The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Zion: Letters Assignment
Module: Postcolonial Writing (Level 5)
Keywords:Kai Miller, postcolonial writing, creative/critical
This assignment revolved around race and culture, something I wanted to explore further, with my own family being of black origin and my heritage unable to trace due to the slave trade. During class, I found that I knew little about colonialism and had never heard the word in a classroom before. Due to this, I felt the importance to demonstrate the notion of white ignorance and its impact on cultural and social studies.
