Check out the second podcast episode on Dava Shastri’s Last Day! I’m continuing reading this book and in this episode, I dive a bit deeper into the text as the story progresses. This episode covers the first two segments of Chapter 5 (“Force of Nature”) which are told from Arvie and Sandi’s perspectives, respectively.

ASSIGNMENT: Racial Identity Autobiography Personal Essay & Artwork Project: When I First Realized the Color of My Skin
Summary: Write a personal essay detailing the moment when you first realized the color of your skin. Create a piece of art to represent this moment in your life thinking about what it meant to you then and/or today–you control the narrative about your skin color and what it means to you no matter what your first experience realizing what the color of your skin was.
