Theme Analysis

I think it is about how African Americans want to be treated equal.

Mama went to the store and when she asked if there where any fresh apple and the man said "Maybe", then when a White Woman asked the same thing he said "Right away".

Walter said his wife can't where pearls but white woman can.

Coflict: man vs self

Walter thought that the best thing for his family was to get a liquor store. When Ruth told him about what she was going to do, he just drank and stayed at the bar.


The Younger family moved in to the house after Walter denied the money from Linder. Mama had told Ruth "he finally came into his Man hood."
