  • Aibileen Clark is a 50-year-old black maid who has spent her life raising white children and has recently lost her only son. Minny Jackson is another black maid and Aibileen's best friend whose outspokenness has gotten her fired a number of times; she has built up a reputation for being a difficult employee, but she makes up for this with her impressive cooking skills.Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan graduated from the University of Mississippi to find that her beloved childhood maid, Constantine has quit while she was away. Skeeter is skeptical, because she believes Constantine would not have left without writing to her.Unlike her friends, who attended university to find husbands (and are now all married and having children), Skeeter is single, has a degree, and wants to begin a career as a writer. Her first job is as a "homemaker hints" columnist in the local paper. Skeeter is one of the few who believes in racial equality and she decides to write a book based on the lives of the maids who have spent their entire lives taking care of white children. Published during the civil rights movement.Skeeter in da end gets a job offer from new york.
  • 23 year old graduate of Missisipi University, who is aspires to become a journalist.independent, brave, and ambitious young woman . she devotes herself, at considerable risk, to a book featuring the real stories of the black women who work for the white families in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi..although friends with several wealthy Jackson socialites such as Hilly Holbrook and Elizabeth Leefolt, Skeeter proves to be different based on her social views. Later in the movie when her boyfriend finds out whatskeeter intends to do he breaks up with her saying why is she going against her own people.treats the Help like they’re no different then her and believes in a change for the future of coloured Americans, especially those women who work as Help to white Americansnot afraid to reveal the truth by writing “The Help” ; believes that the truth should come out. and she doesn't buy into the myths that black people are dirty and have diseases that are poison to white people. Her early relationship with Constantine makes such ideas totally ridiculous to Skeeter. The more Skeeter hears from the maids, the more aware she becomes of the legal, political, and social forces that are allowing these abuses to persist.Skeeter brings about a change in Aibeleen & gradually in minny. She gains her trust and encourages her to write from her perspective.she narrates about 13 chapters in the book.One of the imp factors which has influenced skeeter to become truthful and moral is due to her maid constantine ( "All my life I'd been told what to believe about politics, coloreds, being a girl. But with Constantine's thumb pressed in my hand, I realized I actually had a choice in what I could believe." )., Constantine taught Skeeter to love herself and not to buy into racial prejudices. She has this close relationship for 20 yearsWhen skeeter returns from college –constantine storyBrings a huge chang in her mother. She gets a job offer in New York. This shows that skeeter will take this perspective to a whole new level.No person shall require any white female to nurse in wards or rooms in which Negro men are placed. Books shall not be interchangeable between the white & the colored schools, but shall be continued to be used by the race first using them. No colored barber shall serve as a barber to white women or girls. Any person printing, publishing or circulating written matter urging for public acceptance or social equality between Whites & Negros is subject to imprisonmentMartin Luther King invite the entire D.C to march with him in august. This many Negros & whites have not worked together since gone with the wind.Civil Rights Courage sometimes skips a generation. Thank you for bringing it back to the family
  • narrator of eleven chapters of The Help, is 53 years old. She's a black woman who has been taking care of "white babies" and "cooking and cleaning" (1.1) for white families since she was a teen. She was the 1st black maid to step up da plate & tell her heart wrenching story to skeeterAibileen has raised or helped raise seventeen white babies in her lifetime. The eighteenth one, Mae Mobley Leefolt,Aibileen's own beloved son, Treelore, died in a senseless accident a little over two years before the novel opens. He was only 24 years old at the time.also in her friend get arrested for stealing a ring for her childrenseducation.her sons death & her friends imprisonment makes Aibellen take this dratic step of narrating real stories even if that was very risky and dangerous due to the racial tension happening in the town.Treelore's death, and Aibileen's love for Mae Mobley, moves her to take the extraordinary risk of making her story public (albeit anonymously). With the publication of Help, Aibileen's intelligence, as well as her bravery, is recognized not only by her own community, but also by the general public who reads her story. Aibileen and Skeeter connect because they are both writers.aibeleen was smart in school but had to leave coz of poor conditions.she always writes her prayers instead of saying them.Aibileen is also the only buffer between Mae Mobley and the mother who neglects and beats her and seems to despise her. Mae Mobley isn't the first abused child Aibileen has cared for. But, she's the first one Aibileen really tries to teach. The lessons Aibileen tries to give to Mae Mobley revolve around two basic themes: self-love and racial equality). Aibileen's desire points out that people aren't born with racist ideas. These ideas are taught, passed from generation to generation. Aibileen is trying to break this cycle, by presenting Mae Mobley with alternative ways of thinking about race.Aibeleen brings change in the community- when a black man is murdered the entire community is shocked and scared but also angry. They now help aibellen and minny in telling their stories to skeeter. Aibellen has in a way helped in getting a change in the entire community.after publishing Within 10 min she understood her life as a help was done. Its hard to love your enemies. But it can start by telling the truth. No one ver asked what it felt like to be me. Once I told the truth about that I felt free. And I got to thinking about all the people I knew & the things id seen n done . her son always said there will be a writer in the family . I guess its gonna be me
  • She's a complex mix of extreme strength and extreme vulnerability. works all day outside her home, cooking and cleaning for white families. She's married to Leroy and they have five children, She's widely known as Jackson's premier chef extraordinaire. Yet, she is easy prey for the white women in town she offends, especially the villainous Hilly Holbrook. Unfortunately, she is also easy prey for her husband, who beats her on a regular basis. . At the end of TheHelp,Minny, like her co-narrators Aibileen and Skeeter, starts a new life, away from her abusive husband and away from Hilly Holbrook.(Home Help sanitation initiative)Minny narrates nine chapters of The Help. Like Skeeter, Minny says unpopular things – things that can and do get her into trouble. She's every Southern woman's nightmare because she fights back, even though she's well aware of the risks, and because she protects and empowers her friends, Telling stories – true stories – on the other hand, is a power she can believe in. Selfless and brave, Minny Jackson is the person working behind the scenes of Help to make it a success. Minny refuses to be treated like an object. She asserts herself continually as a person with views, preferences, and a strong voice to make them known. This attitude clashes with what her mother tried to teach her. Celia pays Minny double what she was getting before, she gets weekends off, and she gets to leaves early in the day. Celia sees nothing wrong with eating at the same table as Minny and using the same dishes
