Integrating quotations into a paragraph:
In “Desiree’s Baby,” Madame Valmonde foreshadows the difficulties Desiree will face when she exclaims: “This is not the baby!” (Chopin 82). Her reaction suggests her concern and is advanced when she also notes that he “has changed” (83).
In “Sweetness” the protagonist and mother of Lula Ann asserts: “Some of you probably think it’s a bad thing to group ourselves according to skin color—the lighter the better. . . . But how else can we hold on to a little dignity?” (Morrison). This character describes how her grandmother “passed” as white and no longer acknowledged her family. Furthermore, her mother, Lula Mae, refused to pass as white and suffered the consequences of segregation, so she raises Lula Ann alone with this experience in her consciousness.
