APRIL 7

Summary

The white newspaper that had informed the author about the effigy hanging, carries a follow-up -- how the local racists had burned a cross at a nearby Negro school. The author thinks that it would have been better if they had burnt it on his house or land. The only relief amidst all this hostility is that his friends are always around him to provide support and sympathy. The Turners take Griffin and his family into their home, in order to protect them from being harmed by the white racists.


Notes

Todayís entry describes the progressive role of the white media as it accurately clarifies the issues in the effigy hanging.

It also reveals the authorís deep sensitivity to the Negroes, even in his hour of trial. The author wishes that the white racists had done their evil act on his house or land and not made the innocent Negro children pay the price for his actions.

The next part of the entry is about some more white heroes; friends who stand by him through thick and thin, in spite of the hate and threats of the bullies and castrators.
