This week in class, we’re reading “The Dangers of Tradition” by Bakari Bosa.
In “The Dangers of Tradition,” Bakari Bosa discusses how traditions work in society and the potential dangers involved.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Community, Morality, and Social Pressure as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“How are communities formed?”, “Why do people follow the crowd?”, and “What is good and how do we know?”
