Prompts (choose one):

Option 1: You have read the assigned article “Soundtrack of a Nation: Race, Place, and Music in Modern Brazil.” As you read the article, you have read the historical post-colonial racist practices that shaped Modern-day Brazil and how music was deemed a form of expression and experience for its black population. From a global perspective, specifically in the United States, does race and systemic oppression influence music? If so, how? Do you think minorities in Brazil and the United States would agree to have shared experiences?

Option 2: [Respond to this statement]: “Settler Colonialism was a continuous power structure that bolstered the repression of indigenous people and communities. Characterized by dominance, this power structure normalized land and resource exploitation in areas where indigenous people had genealogical relationships. It included oppression forms such as racism, capitalism, and supremacy. Superiority was natural and inevitable since the settler colonizers assumed European values in high regard. This power system impacted the communities to a greater extent, as seen in the United States’ settler colonialism history.”
