Protagonist & Antagonist

In "Thank you Ma'am" the protagonist is a young boy that wanted some blue suede shoes, and the antagonist is a larger woman named Mrs.Luelle Bates Washington Jones.
The Theme in "Thank you ma'am"
is about: forgiveness,trust,and charity
Why is this the theme?!
Well at the end Mrs.Jones gave Roger $10 dollars to get the shoes he wanted.This shows charity and forgiveness for trying to steal her purse. In "Thank you ma'am" when Mrs. Jones takes Roger to her house she trusted him to not run or try taking her purse again. This shows that Mrs. Jones trusted Roger to not take her purse .
There is the beginning of the story, I'm sorry that I couldn't find the rest of the the clip,but other than that I hope you enjoy this clip.!
