The painting, as you can read in the little history that is given, portrays a real event: Ruby Bridges, an African-American student being escorted to an all-white school.
Analyze the actual picture and what is going on in the painting.
While the photographer reports on the actual event, the painter comments about an interpretation of it.
- What might the artist of the painting be saying that the photographer isn’t?
- Now compare the two pictures to what is portrayed in TKAM.
- How are they similar in plot, character, setting and theme?
- Make a new document called The Problem We All Live With and link it to the unit four page. Write a few paragraphs that compare the literature to the images. Use the discussions held in class as the content and when using quotes, cite sources.
