Unit 2 : Raising Voices

Objective: presenting a document
Complete the following sentences with the appropriate word, verb or form. Do not forget to conjugate the verbs when necessary!
"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."
"I’ve chosen "They don’t Care about Us" by Michael Jackson because this song is about the pain (cause) by prejudice and hatred. It is a way of (draw) attention to social and political problems. Also, the singer suffered a lot because of the color of his skin. This song fits well into the unit "Raising voices" and shows how discrimination (evolved / evolves / has evolved) throughout time."
"I prefer the (film / novel / book ) The Hate U Give (direct) by Georges Tillman in 2018 because (it / it's / its) illustrates the unit. In fact, the director (criticize) his own society by denouncing how the (afro-american / African-American / african) community is treated at school or by the police. It raises people's awareness about racism in the US. This film gives us an example of what can be (the/ a / no article) injustice, discrimination and racism nowadays in the USA."
" The document I prefer is the movie The Help (realized / directed / produced) by Tate Taylor. The story is based on the (roman / book / story / novel) by Kathryn Stockett. The movie (talks about / is about / says about ) a young white woman's relationship with two black maids during the Civil Rights Movement in 1963 in Mississippi. The movie has depth and humor."
" My personal document is an excerpt (of / from / by ) The Escape of William Wells Brown written by himself in 1847. Born enslaved in Kentucky in 1814, William attempted twice in his youth to escape but was recaptured both times. In this autobiography, the author embarks on a quest for freedom after having suffered the violence of slavery. I’ve chosen this document because it’s a clear and descriptive condemnation of slavery (who / which) supports the abolitionist cause."
The document I prefer is an extract (of / from / by) the speech of Louis Armstrong which was published in October 1965. In this speech Armstrong talks about (the / a / no article) segregation in America. He was a famous jazz music player and he thought that music (can / could / cant') bring barriers down. In his speech, he (promote) social cohesion and the fight for the equality in America and in the whole world. So, I have chosen this document because I thought his speech was touching and hopeful."
