  • SETTINGS
    The Finch’s house
    First Purchase African M.E. Church
  • THEMES
    Racism
    Obviously, racism is a major theme of the novel. Blacks were
    not permitted to commingle with whites in public settings,
    as exemplified in the courthouse physical separation of
    races and in the clearly distinct black and white areas of
    town. It can be seen when Scout explores the differences
    Between black people and white people. She and Jem attend
    Church with Calpurnia and Scout truly enjoys the experience.
    Afterwards, she asks Calpurnia if she might be able to visit
    her house sometime because she has never seen it.
    Calpurnia agrees, but the visit is never made, largely
    because Aunt Alexandra puts a stop to it.
    • Jem’s shocked that she’s learned and taught English out of such a difficult book as the Commentaries, and says that that must be why she doesn’t talk like the other African-Americans he knows.
    • Scout thinks with wonder that Calpurnia has a whole other life besides being their cook, much like a child realizing that teachers don’t sleep at school.Jem asks why Cal talked differently at the African-American church than she does with white people, and she says that it makes more sense to fit in.
    • Scout asks if she can visit Calpurnia at her home some time, and Cal says yes.They arrive home to find Aunt Alexandra installed on their front porch.
