Uncle Tom's Analysis
Jake Dibble & Laura Fylling
Jake Dibble - Paragraph
B. The most suprising thing that I saw was that the black man never showed any signs of violence or disobedience to his white masters. He is still shown as caring when he is reading with Eva. He is never really depicted as a savage creature which I might expect from images which are showing the power disparity.
Little Eva reads the bible to Tom since he is unable to read it by himself, becuase hes been oppressed.
Tom is prepared to be smacked down by his master since he doesn't have any bit of a say.
Tom is depicted as almost inhuman as he begs at Jesus' feet.
Tom is depcited taking care and helping little Eva.
The black girl is shown crying and was accused for nothing.
The white men are shown fighting over who owns the black man's life.
Laura Fylling Paragraph
A. In the images besides the obvious theme of black slave oppression, there are a few examples that the white owners would still find a way to teach and influence the black children and adults through education and as well common actions.B. While looking at these pictures there is an overall idea I came across. This was that throughout the time period the African Americans were shunned and always placed outside the families’ loop that they worked for but at the same time were loyal. This concept shocked me and made me keep an open mind that all though there was an extreme amount of evil in the era the oppressed still found a way to be thankful.
