Select one of the following topics Nashon or I mentioned or discussed with you during this class, and write a succinct (120 word maximum word) response:
a. The nature of spectacle in Ancient Rome and in contemporary (21st century) American politics. This came up in specific language and was inferred by what I showed or discussed with you about NFL playoffs, street protests and other topics. b. Iconic photographic images of American presidents and first ladies. This might include your own critique of the photographs I projected of President Trump in which he seemed make a salute with a clenched fist, and the iconic image of American athletes saluting at the 1968 Olympic games. c. The critical nature of language. . This topic is CENTRAL to Holloway’s work as a lyricist. You might want to further critique her lyrics. They are on her website. We also talked about language in our discussion of hats/caps worn by thousands in the Womens Marches this past Saturday
Once you have answered question #1, #2, #3, #4, OR #5, you may add TWO sentences ONLY about hat you liked or appreciated most about Nashon Holloway’s artistry.
