FC: Calpurnia | To Kill a Mockingbird | By Shyenne Diederiks and Delaney McCoy
1: Calpurnia the Finch's maid
2: Calpurnia | I am an African American woman in my late 30's. I am an educated woman who enjoys cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the Finch family. I am a Christian and I have one son, Zeebo. I am a loyal and honest person.
3: Scout | Scout | Scout likes to talk to me while I'm cooking and sometimes she helps me cook. Scout looks up to me as a mother figure and I give her advice.
4: Atticus | Mr. Finch is very respectful towards me. We have a good friendship and we work together as a family. We are dependent upon one another.
5: "They's my comp'ny," said Calpurnia. (Lee 119) | Sunday Service | When I took Scout and Jem to church with me, we were met with disrespect by one of the members of the congregation, Lula. She was mad because I brought white children to an all black church
6: "Yes sir," she said. "Could I just pass this note onto Mr. Finch, please sir? It hasn't got anything to do with--with the trial." (Lee 206) | Atticus's trial | The day of the trial, the children were gone from the house all afternoon. Alexandra was getting worried, so she sent me to the courthouse to tell Atticus.
7: I am a very religious woman. I am a God-fearing Christian and I attend church every Sunday. The Lord is my shepherd.
8: I love cooking, whether it's for my son, Zeebo, or the Finch family. I also enjoy making lemonade for Scout, Jem, and Dill.
9: "Hush your mouth! Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty!"- Calpurnia (Lee 24) | Calpurnia is explaining to Scout how you should not judge someone based on their race, class, or their financial status.
