Literary Reflection #1

Below is my researcher part for the book ” The Help” and the reflection

“The Help” was written in 2009 but it was written in the time of 1960s. In 1962 is when the civil right movement in the States. The civil rights movement was about African Americans. It happen because the African Americans wanted to be equal to whites, so they could have the same right for example education, employment etc. In this book so far we see that the main topic is that whites are racist when it comes to African Americans and treated like they don’t matter. Kathryn Stockett the author of this book in an interview she said that she wrote the book completely opposite from how she grew up she would never understand the way of Minnie or any of the African American character of the book. When she was younger her parents were divorced, she was raised by an African American maid, getting the idea of having a separate bathroom for a different coloured maid it actually happened to her maid, Kathryn was never in the room, even after her maid pasted always she was never allowed in the room “It was out of the back door and you turned right and there was another little door you went through”
