week 5 Discussion

Prompt #1: Listen to this podcast (transcript here) about how activists in Bristol were inspired by Black Lives Matter protests in America to pull down a statue of enslaver Edward Colston. What are the different perspectives represented in this podcast? Who do you agree with and why? How does Frye’s metaphor of oppression as “a birdcage” (p. 12) tie into this event?
