    I am confused about exactly what to do to present the episode from black boy. Do we have to memorize it? How can we rephrase it and do we have to?

      If you choose to retell an episode from Black Boy, you will use storytelling techniques to present the story to the class. You may use note-cards to help you, but reading straight from the page will result in a lower grade. You will probably need to do some improvisation, but the story should be fairly accurate and engaging.
