"I prefer the song "Respect" by Aretha Franklin because we only know her version but actually it was written and (sing) by Otis Redding. He (talk) about respect women should have (preposition) men and claims that he is the boss of the house. Aretha Franklin took the song at her advantage and used it to show that men actually have to respect women and not the other way around. So it makes the song even more powerful when you know the whole story behind it."
"The personal document I preferred was the Netflix’s series "When They See Us". (this/ it / these) is the document that I preferred because it is a series that I had already (look at / watch) and I think it (is / bear / say) a very nice message and perfectly illustrates the injustice experienced by African-Americans in the United States. This is why this document fits perfectly into the unit "Raising Voices".
"I think I prefer the excerpt from Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl written by Harriet Jacobs in 1861. When she (writes/ wrote / written) it , she (use) the pen name Linda Brent not to be identified by her slave masters. (It's / It / Its) fits perfectly with the other documents of the unit "Raising Voices" because in this (book/autobiography/slave narrative) she denounces (the / no article/ a) slavery. She somehow won freedom for her family and herself during this hard time (who/which) slavery was by hiding in a attic for seven years before escaping to the North. In this excerpt, she (raise) her voice, against her masters' violent treatment and sheds light on how hard it is to take care of her children during this time. (That's why / that why / It's why) I really like this document because she (arrive/ manage/ reach) to (tell/told/tells) the world how she lived and it makes it very powerful."
"The document I prefer is obviously "Strange Fruit" a poem (write / wrote / written) by Abel Meeropol in 1937 and (sing / sang / sung) by Billie Holiday for the first time in 1939. This poem was (write / wrote / written) to denounce (afro-american / African-American / african-american) lynching perpetuated by white people. In this song, she (raise) her voice by (point out) the horror of lynching using metaphors. To conclude, I really like this document because it is also a fight against racism taken by a woman. It could be related (preposition?) two causes : feminism and racism."
