  1. Analyze the quote: “There they stood, fifty puzzle pieces forming the pretty face of America, so we thought, though most of the color had been left out…” (419)
  2. What does Miss America symbolize for the narrator?
  3. How does the speaker change over the course of the story? Explain her views and personality and how they develop over the course of the story.
  4. Determine the theme of the story. Find textual evidence to support your assertion.

Also look up some background info on Toni Morrison and write a brief summary.
