Expand paper 2 to 2,000-2,100 words by considering the Afrofuturistic characteristics of one or two characters in Sorry to Bother You and explaining how those characters relate to a current societal need or to current societal pressures. Before you start this expansion project, it would be good to review the readings for paper 2 and maybe even watch the movie again.
To start consider which characters inspire you or trouble you, or maybe which character you can relate to, or one that provides an important lesson. Then list the ways that character is Afro-Surreal. Then think about what needs the character is responding to, and follow up on your thinking by researching those needs. As you explain how your character is Afro-Surreal, you should quote Miller’s manifesto, and you should definitely explain your quotations, as they can be quite difficult to interpret.
