  • Copper Sun by Sharon Draper
  • Claim Slide
  • Reason #1
  • Amari- Her tribe was killed and she was taken to be sold into slavery. She gets bought by Mr. Derby for his son's birthday present. She is sexually abused by his son, Clay. Polly- She is a indentured slave since both of her parents died. She befriends Amari after they realize Mr. Derby and Clay are the bad guys and not each other.
  • Reason #2
  • Polly is the second character who has the most impact on Amari.
  • Counterclaim
  • On the other hand, many people would say that Afi had a big influence on Amari.
  • "A dusty blonde shadow erupted from the woods at that moment, both hands shakily holding the musket. Polly closed her eyes and squeezed the trigger. The sound was deafening, Amari screamed. Clay sank to the ground with a moan." (P.283). Polly was willing to save Amari from Clay since she knew how much Amari, tidbit and herselfhad been through to get freedom. She could of just left with Tidbit during Clay's interaction with Amri but she had grown to close to her.
  • Conclusion
  • "Don't apologize. It's not your fault. Mr. Derby needs to have somebody give him a stiff lashing to let him know how it feels." (P.150). After Amari's beatening from Mr. Derby, she was apologizing to Polly because Polly had to help Amari recover. But Polly gave her thoughts on Mr. Derby beatening slaves and how she doesn't think it's right and he deserves to be beaten.
  • "She looked back at the slave sale. The women were wailing and acting as if something terrible was happening to them. Polly snorted and turned away. Living here in the colonies had to be better than living like a savage in the jungle. They ought be grateful, she thought." (P.76). In the beginning, Polly thought of African Americans as 'savages' but after befriending Amari, she found out that they are never were the bad guys but the slave owners were.
  • But Polly not only influenced Amari on her thoughts on white people, but Amari even INFLUENCED Polly on her thoughts on black people.
  • Polly has the most impact on Amari in the book Copper Sun.
