Please respond to at least two of the prompts below; responding to just one prompt will result in a lower grade for the discussion. Compare and contrast the portrayal of Europeans and Africans in Chapter Three of Heart of Darkness with Things Fall Apart.  What does this reveal about colonialism in Africa? Read Chinua Achube’s “An Image of Africa: Racism in Heart of Darkness.”  Do you agree with his perspective?  Why or why not? Use the literary readings this week to support your opinion. How do the Christian missionaries change Igbo people? Is Okonkwo heroic?

Please divide your response into paragraphs for easier reading. Please note your post should equally answer both sections. Note that I will be checking to see if you actually completed the readings and used critical thinking within your discussion.
