Alice Walker’s short story, “Nineteen Fifty-Five,” spins a tale of a white rock

Alice Walker’s short story, “Nineteen Fifty-Five,” spins a tale of a white rock star’s attempts to somehow compensate the black woman whose song made him wealthy. .
Read the story, then write a short essay (2-3 pages, about 600-900 words) about the characters’ interactions using the vocabulary from Danielle Fosler-Lussier’s textbook chapter, “Chapter 3. The African Diaspora in the United States” (https://muse.jhu.edu/chapter/2640946 , pp. 68-79, especially terms such as race, appropriation, borrowing, diffusion, essentialism, reification, and strategic essentialism. Your essay should include some personal observations (e.g., “that’s what I would have done,” or “here’s how I would have responded differently,” or whatever).
There has been a lot of scholarly criticism of this story published. Feel free to consult any such work you come across, but if you do, please provide proper citations to acknowledge the work you consulted (otherwise, you are appropriating somebody else’s work, just like Traynor in the story … and you will eventually feel very guilty about it).
N.B. Walker’s story appears to be based on Elvis Presley’s cover of a song Big Mama Thornton first recorded (“Hound Dog”), however it is worth pointing out that neither Thornton nor Presley wrote that song. You can listen to both recordings via the optional assignment on listening to the blues:
1. “Lost Your Head Blues,” sung by Bessie Smith. Recorded in New York City on May 4, 1926, with Fletcher Henderson on piano. An example of “classic” blues, with jazz combo accompaniment. Listen to Joe Smith on trumpet, providing the “response” to Bessie’s “call.”

2. “Cross Road Blues,” sung by Robert Johnson. Recorded on Friday, November 27, 1936, in San Antonio, Texas. An example of country blues (also known as downhome blues, rural blues, delta blues). Typically performed by a single performer; here, Robert Johnson provides his own “responses” on his slide guitar. Notice how flexibly he treats the 12-bar formula—it is often 13 or 14 bars long.

3. “Hoochie Coochie Man,” performed by Muddy Waters. An example of Chicago’s urban blues. Note the amplified instruments and the presence of the harmonica. This is sixteen bar blues form, meaning that the first four bars (on the tonic, or “1” chord) has been expanded to fill eight bars. The blues found a home in Chicago after approximately five million blacks moved north from Mississippi between the two World Wars, the greatest peace-time migration in American history. The electrified sound of the urban blues can be heard to symbolize the move from rural to urban life.

MUSC 1101: Music Research Paper Assignment
Assignment Description:
Throughout the course of this semester, we have been studying different musical periods, some of which last for almost 100 years, and some of which last 1,000 years. Because of time constraints, we have only been able to focus on a few representative composers from each period. The following research-based essay is designed to show you how challenging it is to select only a few musicians to represent an entire genre or era. Based on your own research, which must move beyond our class discussions and readings, you will create an essay that accomplishes the following task:

Research and Formatting Requirements:
For this assignment, you must use at least four sources (beyond our OER – Understanding Music: Past and Present) to justify your argument. At least one of your sources must be a book or eBook. Conduct research to find at least four reliable, academic resources. Reliable, academic resources are published by a reputable journal or press. Internet sources that do not go through a rigorous publication process, or which are designed to entertain rather than inform, will not be acceptable for this assignment. That means you may not cite Wikipedia, the A&E website, the History Channel website, or biography.com. However, since this is a music research-based paper, you may use periodicals like Rolling Stone, Time, Billboard, and any other magazine that covers specific genres of music (ex. Source for Rap music, Metal-Edge for Heavy Metal music, Downbeat for Jazz music etc.). Make sure that whatever information you get from the resources just mentioned should be fact-based content, not just the opinion of the writer.
Be sure to cite all the sources you consult properly using MLA format.
The papers must be 4-5 pages (that means 4 complete pages not including the Work Cited page). All final papers must be typed, double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, with 1” margins. Papers that do not meet these requirements will have significant points deducted

Assignment
Compare and contrast two different versions of the same piece/song by two different artists/groups/ensembles (for example, an original and a cover of a song). This assignment essentially builds on the assignments for Discussion 2 and Discussion 3, and should demonstrate not only your understanding of the concepts learned throughout the course, but also an improvement from your earlier assignments. ***You may NOT analyze the same pieces/songs you used in your previous assignments, or anything that has been discussed in class or in the textbook.
You should begin by identifying the piece/song, its composer, the artist(s), the style/genre, and the year in which each version was composed or recorded (in general, you want to provide a brief overall history of each version). Your introduction should be followed by a brief description of the genre(s), including history and general stylistic features, as well as the general social/cultural significance of the music. The majority of your paper, however, should provide a detailed analysis and comparison of both pieces of music. In what ways are the pieces/songs similar or different? Could the reasons for differences in musical elements (melody, rhythm, tempo, etc.) and lyrics be purely artistic, or is there a deeper message? Be specific and develop your ideas and observations, making sure to use the following musical terms, elements, and concepts.
Melody/Harmony: Identify individual melodies and note where they are first introduced and subsequently reappear in each piece. Are they short and easy to remember, or long and complex? Is there a lot of repetition? Are the melodies harmonized? Are there differences in the melodies (such as use of different pitches, or even entirely different melodies) between the two versions of the piece/song, and if so, what could be the reason? Is melody the most important part of the music, or is it rhythm?
Rhythm: Beat, accent, meter, syncopation, etc. How does the rhythm affect the music, and is it used to create special or interesting effects? Does the rhythm contribute in any way to the overall mood of each song/piece?
Tempo: How does tempo affect the song/piece? Do both versions have similar tempos, or are they different?
Dynamics: Identify changes in dynamics and discuss the effect they create.
Instruments/Timbres: What types of instruments are used, and what do they sound like? What is the relationship between voices and instruments? Are the instruments used purely for accompaniment or do they also play melodies/countermelodies or even extended solos/improvisations?
Word-music relationships: For songs that include lyrics, you must discuss the relationship between the lyrics and music for each version of the song (think back to our discussions of Schubert’s “Erlkönig,” Arlen’s “Over the Rainbow,” Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sun is Burning,” etc.). In addition looking at the instructions for Discussion 3, you should address the following:
Do the lyrics comment in some way on any social or cultural issues, including historical events, social practices, race, gender, politics, etc?
Are the lyrics of both versions of the song exactly the same, or are there differences?
If there are differences, what are the reasons behind the change, and how does that change affect the music’s meaning?
Is the change controversial or subversive in any way?
You may include complete lyrics at the end of your paper, but this does not count towards the 1250-word minimum.
****Note: Always aim to be as specific as possible when describing the music, and be sure to develop any ideas or observations. Do not make statements without developing them further. For example, don’t just state that “the music’s rhythm was complex,” but explain why you think that is and provide examples.
Research: You will need to do some research to find out more about the styles/genres and their general characteristics and stylistic features. The compare/contrast section of your paper, however, must consist solely of your own ideas.
You must cite your sources properly (using the style most common in your own academic field). A bibliography or works cited list does not count towards the minimum word count.
In addition to providing a bibliography/works cited list, make sure to cite sources within the text (using either footnotes or in-text citations).
You may not use Wikipedia or similar sites as sources. If you are not sure if you may use a certain source, please ask.
