Please write a three to three-and-a-half page explanatory synthesis essay about how a marginalized individual can be empowered by the characteristics considered by some others as negative.

The essay must utilize “How It Feels to Be Colored Me” by Zora Neale Hurston and “On Being a Cripple” by Nancy Mairs as source texts. Both authors are concerned with experiences associated with aspects of their identities, and you might consider the interplay between the internal and external, senses of belonging and otherness, and how identity is socially experienced.

Remember to focus on concepts and to use the authors’ arguments as supporting evidence because this essay should synthesize the two arguments in order to advance an entirely new position.

It is important to note that in “How It Feels to Be Colored Me” Zora Neale Hurston uses era-specific terminology. When paraphrasing, utilize what is now considered the socially acceptable terminology, such as African American, a woman of color, and people of color.

In “On Being a Cripple”, Nancy Mairs refers to herself as a “cripple” and “crippled”, but you must refer to her as a disabled person or disabled.

You must:

Include a thesis statement that explicitly answers the assignment’s question.
Include material from both sources in each body paragraph.
Correctly incorporate, cite, and frame quotations.
Include a conclusion that broadens the interpretation and speaks to why this new understanding matters.
The essay must be typed, double-spaced, with Times New Roman 12-point font, page numbers, and one-inch margins on all sides. Format according to MLA standards, including a left margin heading, and give the essay an appropriate title.
