The novel is about a writer named John Howard Griffin who decides to study how a black man lives in the late 1950’s. Mr. Griffin’s main purpose for writing this book was to show inconsiderate and immature white people were in the past. It also revealed how horrible black people were treated. (5)
This novel is probably directed to young adults. It is directed to this audience due to the mature subject but also conveys the message of how wrong racism is. I also recommend this to adults also because I think that they could learn things from it also. (1)
One theme from the novel is racism. It is not universally accepted because it is so immature and stupid. The author’s main reason for writing this story was to tell the story of racism. Another theme from the story is linked with racism but is not the same, is civil rights. This has been a huge topic during the last century and still exists now. He tries to tell the reader that this is important and should be important in ones life through the theme. The other theme is perseverance. The author expresses this by writing this book. It is showed by the perseverance Mr. Howard has by going after the topic and by how he lived when he was a black man. He had to persevere by put
He is a middle-aged man and has to go through every day in the Deep South. (2)The style is colloquial because they use diction that is used in the setting and the slang the blacks use. Howard shows a couple of themes and is parts of a lot of them. It doesn"tmt raise many question only answers. After being blind for 10 years he surprisingly regained his vision in 1957. (3)I think this title is more then appropriate. (2)John Howard Griffin who is not only the author but is also the protagonist of this story, Black Like Me. I find that this inspired me to be a better person. Howard could not get his traveler checks cashed because of his color but he persevered and never gave up and got them cashed and was able to keep his study alive. This was a big book that described the struggles in the mid 1900"tms. This is not accepted now but it still exists because of immature people. (5)I think that the story accomplishes a lot.
