Discuss the reasons why and how the abolition of slavery impacts Puerto Rico?

You must write a final paper, as a form of critical “meditation,” on one (or more) case study artworks or exhibitions covered in class.  This paper must also address, in depth, 2 -3 texts covered in class. Only one text may be from the same week as the case study. The idea is to reflect upon a combination of artworks and texts covered over the entire 10 weeks of our class. Your questions are prompts for you to return to the artworks/exhibitions/texts and dig deeper on what you initially found interesting. Please reference the Chicago Manuel of Style for footnotes etc. (posted on canvas)Paper length: 2000- 3000 words
