TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD : TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD CHAPTERS 16- 20 Chapter 16 : Chapter 16 Important Passages : Important Passages “I was beginning to notice a subtle change in my father. . .when he said, ‘anything fit to say at the table’s fit to say in front of Calpurnia. She knows what she means to this family.’” (Lee 157) This quote is one of the more significant passages in chapter 16. It shows how truly important Calpurnia is in the Finch family. She has been a mother figure to Jem and Scout throughout their lives and she has raised them even more so than Atticus. It also shows that black and white can coexist, even in that time period, without the African American being treated like they are inferior. Slide 4: “‘They don’t belong anywhere. Colored folks won’t have them because they’re half white; white folks won’t have them because they’re colored, so they’re just in-betweens, don’t belong anywhere.’” (Lee 161) This passage is about the mixed children in the South. They are very much alone, because they do not fit in with either the white or black communities. They may even face more prejudice because they are receiving it from both ends. Chapter Summary : Chapter Summary This chapter takes place on the day before and the day of the trial. the trial is going to be a major town event. Scout, Jem, and Dill go to the court room and find seats within the colored section even though Atticus forbade them to come. Chapter 17 : Chapter 17 Chapter 18 : Chapter 18 Chapter Summary : Chapter Summary Mayella Violet Ewell takes the witness stand. Mayella gets very emotional about many of the questions asked. She gets very offended when Atticus calls her Ms. Mayella and when he asks if she has any friends. Chapter 19 : Chapter 19 Chapter Summary : Chapter Summary Tom Robinson is questioned by Atticus. Tom explains how he did many chores for Mayella on a regular basis. When asked if he raped Mayella he denied it three times. Afterwards he ran away because he was scared. Mr. Link Deas rose from the audience and said in the eight years Tom worked for him he never had any trouble. Dill then starts to cry because of the way Mr. Gilmer treats Tom, and leaves the court house. Chapter 20 : Chapter 20 Slide 12: The kids meet Mr. Dolphus Raymond outside the courthouse. He offers Dill a drink because he has a stomach ache. Dill finds that the drink is just Coca-Cola. They ask why he lets people think he’s a drunk. They start to talk about the case. Slide 13: Their seats were saved. Jem updates them on the case. Atticus takes off his jacket. Atticus then makes an incredible closing argument. Jem was sure Atticus would win. Important Passage : Important Passage “‘Atticus says cheating a colored man is ten times worse than cheating a white man,” . . . “‘Says it’s the worst thing you can do.” (Lee 201) This is important because it shows how much respect Atticus has for both colored people and whites.
