Hi @Courtney-McClelland,

Happy to help!

We are looking for the answer choice which identifies the attitude displayed towards both blues musicians (Passage A) and griots (Passage B).

How does Passage A's author feel about blues musicians?

The author tells us that blues musicians honed a music of personal expression which often reflected their disconnectedness to society as caused by slavery.

The author does not describe the blues musicians as community historians; rather, the author believes that blues musicians focused on their personal emotions within a broader social framework.

As the author of Passage A does not believe that blues musicians are community historians, answer choice (D) cannot be true.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
