Fera Gunawan Times News

Social Studies 9 students were tasked with creating a personal response to an artistic representation/response to the African slave trade. Each student chose something that spoke to them, whether it was an etching from 1870 or The Interesting Narrative of Olaudah Equiano. They had full freedom to decide on the type of response they created with regards to one aspect of cultural response to the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Some chose to do art pieces, others essays, poems, songs, and there was even a podcast. Some of the art pieces are shared below.
