Page 85: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, Written by Himself.

I may begin to tape our classes in order to record the ground we’ve covered. In the meantime, I’ve formulated a short list of key terms we discussed today. If you can think of anything of note that I’ve missed, please pass it along.

moral suasion

miscegenation [for PJ, et al: miscegenation Etymology:  Irregularly < classical Latin miscēre to mix (see mixed adj.2) + genus race (see genus n.) + -ation suffix.]

partus sequitur ventrem= that which is brought forth follows the womb


manliness (The classic cultural history of this concept is Gail Bederman’s Manliness and Civilization. Great book.)

Finally, Student Voices, an SFSU website, collects testimony from students who have been adversely impacted by tuition raises and budget cuts. Student Voices is linked with the California State Student Association’s The Buck Starts Here campaign.
