My fun fact was that I have seven siblings. I have four brothers and three sisters. I have two dogs. I am the second youngest of my siblings. I went to high school at Thomas Worthington, where I competed in varsity soccer and basketball. I am majoring in Political Science at The Ohio State University.
When researching Frances Harper an interesting fact that I came across, on Wikipedia, was that "She helped or held high office in several national, progressive organizations." Things like "The American Anti-Slavery Society." I believe this is interesting because this was before women could even vote. So to have an African-American woman not only a part of a national organization but a key part in some of them. She wanted equal rights for not only women but for people of color, and really anyone that was told that they couldn't. Frances Harper made a huge impact towards everyone having equal rights, but died nine years before she could see women voting.
My favorite poem was 'Bury Me in a Free Land' by Frances Harper. I enjoyed this poem because I liked the pattern of rhyming the end of two sentences together. It made the poem seem to flow easier, and have a more relaxed tone. It especially seemed interesting because she chose to have the poem like that with what her subject was. It was all about blood and loss, but is meant to be read in such a calming way it almost seems wrong.
Coffle or another form is Kaffle: "A train of men fastened together" or more specifically "A gang of slaves chained and driven along together" I chose this word because I was not sure what it meant when reading the poem. After reading what the Oxford English Dictionary had, I feel that the line that the word coffle is in makes much more sense. Which actually helped to better understand the poem as a whole.
