Let the Circle be Unbroken

1. How does what happens to the Turners in Chapter 8 reflect the overall problems faced by members of the black community in this novel? How does the Turners’ situation affect your understanding of the Logans and the fact that they own their land?

Te Turners are forced to pull up their crops because they planted too much. They are merely sharecroppers on owners land. They are basically slaves to the white land owners, they have no rights. The Logans own their own land. It is not common for a black family to own their own land. Unlike the black sharecroppers, the Logans hence have autonomy, pride and dignity. They can do what they wish on their land.
