Brown v.s The Board of Education Case, segregationists, anti-segregationists, the Government.
This is why I had the issues that I had during this time.
Conflict: P v. P and P v. S
Hey, we got ourselves a N****. N****, N****, N****.
Setting 1-Melba's house: "Seven red cement stairs led up to the front door. A giant rubber plant stood just inside the front hallway next to tall mahogany book cases that held cherished volumes of Shakespeare, and other books mother loved so much." Setting 2-Central High School: A large school, concrete stairs, heavy double doors, lots of stairs inside, etc.
Hyperbole and Foreshadowing
Brown v.s. The Board of Education....
Watch out for these things that the other children will do to you....
Protagonist: Melba Pattillo Beals- A beautiful, strong, courageous, empowering and influential 16 year-old who integrates in Little Rock Central High School, as one of the "little rock nine." Antagonist: The Brown V.S. Board of Education Case, the government, segregationist, and the anti-segregationist.
Wow, this place is huge, dark, and crowded.
Person v. Person: A white man grabs Melba and and yells at her and calls her a N**** multiple times. Person v. Society: "My mind could take in the sights and sounds only one by one: flashing cameras, voices shouting in my ears, men and women jostling each other, old people, young people, people running, uniformed police officers walking, men standing still, man and women waving their fists, and the the long line of uniformed soldiers..."
Melba!!! Oh My God!!!
Cleans your soul, it will all be better in the morning after good rest and a long hot bath.
Hyperbole: "Forever preserved in my mind." Pg.12 Foreshadowing: "Yeah, but it's gonna get worse." Pg.192
Simile: "It was like entering a darkened movie theater-amid the rush of a crowd eager to get seated before the picture." Pg. 71
Dramatic Irony: In the beginning of the book as Melba rushes home from school-due to the Brown v.s. The Board of Education case- a white man trys to get her to go somewhere with him in his car, but Melba said "no". So eventually the white man tries to rape her, but she got away with help from someone. When she got home she didn't know exactly what the man was trying to do and what exactly had just happened, but everyone else did.
