This course hopes to honor D.C. Black identity by analyzing Black literature—novels, short stories, and poetry—set in the nation’s capital. We will read contemporary poets and authors such as Marita Golden and Edward P. Jones. Through their writing, I hope we will experience The District in a new light.

Bringing Everyday Objects to Life
In this course, students will learn how to make a miniature studio, use everyday objects to create modifiers for lighting, and reflectors. We’ll be using these for most or all of the projects (two will not be using the miniature studio). We’ll use apples as the theme for this class in six different projects.
