Personal Response: I really liked this short story. I really liked this short story because, the author kind of explains that African American people matter too. I liked that because it shows that everyone should be treated the same no matter the skin color. I personally like African Americans so I really enjoyed this short story.
Summary: This short story was about and African American. This book was about how Uncle Cleve had grown up, how he got through life, and about what he did growing up as a child. I read that Cleve and his grandson had went on a trip to Hollandale together. When they were on their trip together, they both have a very good time. There were some bad things about the trip though. They didn't like how they had seen a bunch of white people there because, the white people would talk about them in front of them, and they didn't like that. On the trip, Cleve's grandson was explaining how he was helping his uncle with his business. He was explaining how he would go to the ice shop with his uncle, and how hard it was to carry a lot of ice at once. There was a party that they wanted to go to. When they arrived at the party, white people were everywhere saying how they aren't allowed to be there, because they don't fit in. That really crushed them because they really wanted to have another good time before they had to leave, but they couldn't.
Characterization: Uncle Cleve and his grandson were really good in the beginning and through the book they had a very good personality. Through the story they worked hard together and they had a very good time together. When they went on a trip they had a wonderful time. Although when they wanted to go to a party the white people kicked them out because they apparently did not fit in because of their skin color, that really affect their lives towards the end of the story.
Recommendation: I recommend you to read this book. I say this because if you're against racism I think that this would be a good short story for you.
