The only positive effect of the culture clash can be seen in Achebe's Things Fall Apart. People who are isolated and ostracized in the Igbo tribe are welcomed by the white man's church. Nwoye, for example, is sensitive and thoughtful, but he is also somewhat lazy and sulky. Okonkwo is harsh with the boy, fearing that he will become like Unoka. After the death of Ikemefuna, something breaks in Nwoye. Later, he converts to Christianity, in part to escape his father. Other than this, both books concentrate on the damaging effects of imperialism on native tribes in Africa.
