Description Complete a written response in which you analyze the “Recitatif” by Toni Morrison. You should answer the following questions in your response: In the story, there is one African American character and one white character. But which character is which? And, how did you arrive at your decision? What is your evidence? Be sure to consider stereotypes and your own assumptions about race as you consider your response. As adults, there is a change in the power relationship between the Twyla and Roberta. How are they different? What does this tell us about their social class and their race? What social issues (other than race and racism) does Morrison take on in the story? How do these other social issues intertwine with the theme of race and racism?
