Transcript of Allusion in To Kill a Mockingbird

"Suppose you and Scout talked colored-folks' talk at home it'd be out of place, wouldn't it? Now what if I talked white-folks' talk at church, and with my neighbors? They'd think I was putting' on airs to beat Moses."

Found: (12.142) Pg. 167
Allusion: Moses
Moses' Contributions
He was instructed by God to liberate all Hebrew slaves from Egypt to the promised land, Canaan.
Moses performed a number of miracles for the Hebrews:
1. Ten Plagues in Egypt
2. Splitting the sea
3. Extracting water from a rock
4. Bringing down the manna
God gave the 10 commandments that were written in 2 stone tablets to Moses that told the people how to live.
Relating back to TKAM
The enslaved Hebrews relates to African Americans as they both were enslaved and treated badly

The book takes place in the 1930's where colored people were discriminated by the whites

The whites can relate back to the Egyptians in who both races have treated another race harshly
Before the Allusion
That Sunday Calpurnia decides to take the kids to her African-American Church that is called First Purchase African M.E Church.

Scout began to notice that Calpurnia was speaking "nigger-talk" to her folks rather than speaking the formal English as she did back home.
By: Ingrid Menjivar and Carlos Huaynate
Allusion in To Kill a Mockingbird
Calpurnia explains if she talks formal English with her folks, it will ruin her relationships with others

She would have been thought of as "putting on airs" towards the people she loves and in front of the church
