In Part 2 of this research project, you will find two sources from databases I will provide that flesh out your understanding of attitudes towards race and/ or slavery at the time Benito Cereno was set (1800) or at the time it was written (1856). You will write one-paragraph summaries of each source that include quotes to back up your claims/ description of the text.
Then, you will write a third paragraph in which you will explain how your research has helped you to consider how Captain Delano’s view on race and slavery reflect or comment on race and slavery at the time in the United States. You should explain how your research helped you understand Captain Delano’s perspective on race and slavery better.
