@Julie,

The last paragraph tells us that Walker won over middle class African Americans by refining the cakewalk and emphasizing its fundamental grace (53-54), suggesting that she emphasized/ highlighted the elements that were already present in the dance.

Let me know if you have any further questions.

But why is C wrong? I feel that the paragraph directly supports that answer

Hi @Meredith,

Thanks for the question! (C) does seem to be supported by the last paragraph, but its claim is a bit too strong and proven wrong by the last example. It's not necessarily the case that EACH of her interpretations was tailored to a different cultural group. In fact, the last example in the paragraph suggests that (C) is wrong, as that interpretation is tailored to a SOCIAL group. Thus, it's based on economic status, as opposed to cultural identity. Hope this helps!
