Chapter 6 follows Nestor Quintero’s (Lila’s father) time in America from 1948 to 1954 from the time he was a seminary student to a position at an Alabama church. Much happened to Nestor during these years. What did he experience? How did it change his understanding of segregation? How do you think he felt?
Chapter 10 focuses on Lila’s experiences in high school in a now desegregated south. In the Epilogue, we see Lila much later in life, as an adult with her own children, and making a visit back to Argentina after more than 40 years.
What happens to Lila in high school (and briefly in summer school) that speaks to the changes (or maybe not so great changes) in southern society after desegregation occurred in schools? Based on these experiences, how do you think Lila’s attitudes toward racism matured during her teen years?For more information on Research Proposal read :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Research_proposal
