I can tell that the pueblo and the people in the pueblo are special to him. The reason i say that is because at the end of the poem he writes “La grand Gente de mi pueblo” which means in english the great people of his town.

I agree with you because it does sounds like something that would be said at church. For example where it states “Down at the crowd where my Savior died.” Sounds like something that they would say in church.

I want to say I agree with you because in the letter it states “He really believed what white people said about him.” This makes me think that he killed himself because he believed everything white people said about him.

I agree

yeah I agree with you because the part where the uncle writes ” he really believed what white people said about him.” This part made me realized that James Baldwin’s dad did listen to what white people said which destroyed him. The uncle is letting James know what happens when someone listens to white people. Print this page. Author Bethzy
