This vocabulary list accompanies the full (unabridged) version of Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Pattillo Beals. It contains 98 words and 15 cultural references, listed separately. The words are listed in two ways. Pages 1-3 of this handout lists the 98 words and 15 cultural references in the order in which they appear in the book, with a page reference for each item. On pages 4-5 of this handout, the 98 words are grouped according to the chapter in which they appear. You can ask students to look up the meanings of all the words and references, or you can ask them to look up only the words and references with which they are unfamiliar. When I use this list with my first-year college students who are developmental readers, I do the latter.
