Transcript of Huckleberry Finn Themes- Racism and Slavery

Racism and Slavery
by Brandon-Ali Smalls Racism and Slavery are two related themes that reoccur in Huckleberry Finn very often. Jim, Ms. Watson's slave, is a very important character to the story. He is subjected to racism by many characters, even Huck himself. Early in the book, on page 5,
