Multigenre Artifact 1

I chose to do this Multigenre so that I could show the different parts of Mugo. This allows me to show how over time, Mugo had changed becoming full of fear and sadness. He started out being a kind young boy until the Mau Mau entered his life, this is what adds the fear and then he loses his father the the people trying to defeat the Mau Mau. This is where the sadness attaches itself to Mugo. The feeling of betrayal comes from Mathew. Mathew allowed his friend to be cruel to Mugo instead of sticking up for Mugo like a true friend would.

Multigenre Artifact 2

I chose to create a piece of art so that I could show how I picture the Mau Mau Uprising. I see it as an everlasting flame consuming the Kenyans. Like a flame the Mau Mau constantly grow and and spread until they have taken all there is to take. The shadow of a person within the flames represents all of the people of Kenya. Being a shadow it can represent anyone whether the person be black or white. It did not matter who the person was because the flames of the Mau Mau would still consume and destroy them.

Multigenre Artifact 3

I chose to create a facebook page for Jomo Kenyatta, a leader in the Mau Mau uprising. I want to show, not only, how he was a proud leader of the Mau Mau, but also how he was a regular person. He wanted to fight for what he believed in just like any other human being. He was just more willing to put his views out into the open while others are not brave enough to tell the world how they feel. He was not afraid to go to jail and he was punished for his actions, but that did not stop him. When he was released from jail he took charge and became the president of Kenya. He was a strong fighter, a good leader, and a regular human being.
