Individuals in Relationship to Social Codes

The works by Hughes, Sharp, and Parker allude to society's laws and how individuals relate to them.

"Thank you, Ma'am" by Langston Hughes describes the experience of an individual who broke the social code but was able to learn it anew through his contact with others.

"It's the Law: A Rap Poem" by S. Pearl Sharp describes how individuals must learn to follow the social code through realizing the moral code within themselves.

"Snapping Beans" by Lisa Parker describes the experience of a person out of their environment and yet still able to adjust to the social code of another community.
