Assignment 1 (Doesn?t have to be full page, citation is a MUST):
Kesha has invited her friend Carrie to go home with her over the school?s short holiday break. Kesha, like many African Americans, has a rich spiritual tradition that permeates most areas of her life. In addition, Kesha is close to her immediate and extended family. Carrie, on the other hand, comes from a predominantly Caucasian Presbyterian background, is an only child, and rarely sees any of her extended family.

Suggest ways in which Kesha could build a bridge to help Carrie understand the African American culture.
