4 pages essay poem about the memory in these two books ( Another Brooklyn, Brown Girl Dreaming )
and this is the thesis:
Thesis: Woodson uses memory in both books to show how Jackie becomes a writer and how August uses the past to understand what humans need to interpret and survive loss. Both characters see the value of their own personal pasts and the history of African Americans as they develop their own identities.
I. The ten haiku show how Jackie learns the value of listening in order to tell her life story, but also the story of her people.
II. August learns to accept the death of her mother by remembering; by remembering the past, she learns to appreciate the beauty as well as the trauma she experienced, as well as how to connect these experiences and her familyâ€™s experiences to the broader history of African Americans.
