On April 20, I went in for an office hours visit with Professor Hoskins to discuss my first Essay. The meeting was very insightful and I received a lot of information on how to further enhance my paper and different ways to incorporate multimodal components into the paper. We also discussed my final project and how Howard University is preferred to as the Mecca. This meeting was very informative and cause a sparked interest in the writer, Ta-Nihasi Coates. Professor Hoskins gave me multiple ideas on how I can incorporate his book into my essay and use his discretion of the Mecca (Howard University) and compare it to my project as a whole. This meeting helped me get a clearer understanding of the direction I should go with my paper and was a step forward in a positive direction.
