Propaganda a.Searching for Brother Clifton and Brother Maceo, one of his best contacts and a regular at Barrelhouse's Jolly Dollar who has been missing for some time, the narrator is shocked to find Brother Clifton selling dancing, paper Sambo dolls on a street corner.
Without a permit to sell the dolls, Clifton is arrested by a white policeman, who harasses and abuses him. When Clifton strikes back, the policeman shoots and kills Clifton. Determined to pay tribute to his friend, the narrator organizes a lavish funeral and eulogizes. He also assumes responsibility for informing the neighborhood youth of Brother Clifton's death.
These two chapters, which focus on Brother Tod Clifton's death and funeral, mark a major transition in the narrator's character and a pivotal point in the novel, highlighting and illuminating various themes, images, and symbols introduced in previous chapters.
Ellison uses the scene with the grotesque, dancing dolls to advance the theme of blacks perceived as dolls, puppets, and tokens introduced in Chapter 1 the "battle royal" scenein which the boys are forced to scramble for brass tokens on the electrified rug.
Brother Clifton's death has a profound impact on the narrator. For the first time, he becomes emotionally involved with the fate of another human being as he wrestles with his conscience, wondering if there was something he could have said or done to prevent this tragedy. As he recalls his feelings of humiliation and disgust at seeing Brother Clifton selling the Sambo dolls, he may also begin to recall the respect, admiration, and genuine friendship he felt for Brother Clifton prior to seeing him sell the degrading dolls.
Thus, his friend's tragic death compels the narrator to examine the meaning of his own life. Brother Clifton's death also presents the narrator with a complex moral dilemma as he struggles to reconcile his grief with his loyalty to the Brotherhood. Recall that Jim Trueblood faced a similar moral dilemma as he struggled to reconcile the financial and material needs of his family with his desire to save face in the eyes of his community.
According to Brotherhood philosophy, an individual's worth is measured by his or her contributions to the organization. Consequently, because Brother Clifton's outrageous behavior violated the Brotherhood's mission of uplifting the race by working together for the common good of the people, he is no longer worthy of being part of the organization.
In the eyes of the Brotherhood, Brother Clifton's behavior is more important than his life, which has little, if any, intrinsic value. Because the narrator knew Brother Clifton personally, he knows his behavior was totally out of sync with his true character. He also knows that Brother Clifton was not only intelligent but street smart.
He knew that by striking a white policeman, he was virtually committing suicide. Plagued by these troubling thoughts, the narrator realizes that he must make a crucial decision: Will he dismiss his friend's murder as a necessary sacrifice and just another casualty of the race war, or will he honor Brother Clifton's memory and speak out on his behalf?
By planning Brother Clifton's funeral and delivering his eulogy, he apparently opts for the latter.

The narrator's decision illustrates his growing emotional maturity, as he is able to separate Brother Clifton's irrational behavior from his essence as a man of principle and integrity and conclude that selling the dolls was totally out of character for him. As he ponders the possible reasons for his friend's behavior, the narrator also begins to examine his own feelings and to think for himself instead of jumping to conclusions and blindly following what others would tell him is the right thing to do.
The narrator's newly awakened empathy and compassion are particularly striking compared to his response to Brother Clifton's selling the Sambo dolls, and to his earlier response to Jim Trueblood's story. In both cases, he was appalled by the behavior of a black man. But this time, the narrator identifies with Brother Clifton as a true blood brother and fellow black man who has been subjected to the same hatred and prejudice he himself has experienced.
The narrator did not attempt to analyze Trueblood's situation, but he does ask himself what could possibly have prompted Tod Clifton to not only sell the degrading dolls, but to strike a white policeman.
He sees that selling the dolls was not a spiteful or ignorant act designed to humiliate the black community. It was a desperate, self-destructive act aimed at expressing his own self-hatred at selling his people by being part of an organization that exploits blacks, using them only to advance its own social goals and seeing them as nothing more than dolls or puppets. Following this line of reasoning, Brother Clifton's striking the white policeman was not the act of an angry, out-of-control man ignorant of the consequences of his actions.
It was the deliberate act of a man who has come to a crossroads in his life and realizes he has nothing more to lose.Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Showing Average rating 3.Identify the main groups and ideas that drove the Progressive movement. Explain how immigration to United States in this period was part of a global movement of peoples. Describe how Fordism transformed American industrial and consumer society. Socialism was a rising force across the globe in the early twentieth century.
How successful was the movement in the United States? How did immigrants adjust to life in America? What institutions or activities became important to their adjustment and why? What did Progressive-era feminists want to change in society, and how did their actions help to spearhead broader reforms?
How did each Progressive-era president view the role of the federal government? Pick a Progressive-era reform a movement, specific legislation, and organization and describe how it shows how Progressives could work for both the expansion of democracy and restrictions on it. During the Progressive Era in America, many people were trying to create reforms for those who they believed were oppressed or down trodden in the current social, political, and economic climate.
Of these movements was socialism. The party called for free college education, improvement of labor conditions, and democratic control of the economy. The party was mainly facilitated by the surviving radicals of the Populists party and those who fought against the inherent inequality in the American economy.
It gained a good number of followers, but was never powerful enough to gain significant traction in American politics. While there were some local officials elected by the Socialist party, and there were a few presidential candidates at the time to adopt the party platform, there was not enough national support in order to make big changes at the national level. However, it did enjoy support from the American Federation of Labor, and then scores of diverse communities started to support the party as well.
Immigrants and others who felt the struggles of the factory and industrial life—what with all of the bad treatment and poor wages that came with it—supported the idea of socialism and what it promised for their futures. Somewhat surprisingly, the socialist movement also gained support in tenant farmers in some Western regions, most likely due to the old Populist support in the areas, as well as the plight these farmers faced with the structure of the economy in America.
So, there was indeed widespread support for the Socialist party during this time, but many Americans had issues with the policies of the party. There was no talk in the book on the support the Socialist party gained from African Americans at the time, and I attribute this to the same reason for other reforms during this period: the general overlooking of the African American public. Many of the Progressive policies of the time focused primarily on the white public of America, and did not try to include African Americans into their reform practices.
I can only imagine that it would be the same for socialism. While they did try to change the economic policies of the time, they were very much involved in the workplace, so it is possible that the changes they attempted to make in factories overlooked Africans Americans, which in turn resulted in the loss of support from African American communities.
There were plenty of people in America who supported the Socialist Party, yet the support was not as widespread as the leaders of the party hoped, and they did not gain the numbers they needed to become a big political party in American politics during the Progressive Era.
Like Like. Progressives main purpose in their reform was to make a better life for people living in America. However, their reforms did not always expand democracy to others. The progressive reforms, such as the Maternalist reform, and the actions of organizations both expanded democracy and restricted it. The Maternalist reform was a movement to exalt women as homemakers and caretakers and resolve the issues that came about by many women entering the workplace.
The movement called for government aid and pensions to struggling mothers. This movement expanded democracy by putting more value in the life of women. Now women could receive government aid to support families.Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required.

Where to eat at St. Who can forget the incredible victory by Henrik Stenson in 2016 at Royal Troon where he dueled with Phil Mickelson and took home The Claret Jug. There is now a single player at the top of the Open Championship Leaderboard with Jordan Spieth three shots clear after another faultless round at The Open 2017.
My final tips of the week will be in the betting without Spieth market. The GM Tipster got ready for the Open Championship by picking the winner and three of the top 5 in the John Deere Classic last weekend. To have a look at how he is doing so far this season check out our golf betting tips homepage.
Has a low round in him and not going to get better odds on him now. Is one under par and very much in the hunt. I am ecstatic that I can now get on him as I thought the opportunity had passed.
He is level par, got a good chance to do well even if it is just at each way. Knows his way around a links course and will have incredible home support as he comes from Southport. He is 9th in the world won the BMW PGA Championship a month ago and has four top tens this year in total, we also know he can win on links.
The weather is set to be pretty mixed with showers and strong winds, the trickier the conditions the better his chances I feel. He still very much has the game to compete and at this price he has a great each way chance. He is a player who really rises to the big occasion and had incredible form on links courses in 2016.
Even with the recent bad form I still think he could contend this week.

It is worth remembering that Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao have all tried and failed to beat the former pound-for-pound number one so it is impossible to see a fighter who has never fought professionally in a boxing ring before having any chance against one of the greats of all time. If those odds are too short for you then you can turn to the method of victory market. It could simply be a matter of when, not if, Mayweather wins by knockout or technical knockout.
It is worth looking out for a number of specials on the fight that the bookmakers will be publishing in the run-up to the bout, some of which are already available.
We are still waiting on details of who will broadcast the fight in Ireland and the UK but it is sure to break box office records around the world as two sports collide in the clash of titans.
