This scene is when the meeting is held in the marketplace to talk about getting rid of the Christians. Many people come to the meeting. As the meeting is going on, a group of court messengers come and say the white man wants the meeting over and Okonkwo kills one of the messengers. After he does this he realizes that his home, Umuofia, will not fight back against the white men so he decides to kill himself. I chose this scene because it shows that after everything Okonkwo has been through, he has given up and cannot fight anymore.
