This paper examines and analyzes the plot, story, main character, and themes of Ann Petry's "The Street." The paper explores the topic of how one's perception of morality can change when faced with racism and oppression.
From the Paper:"The story is a story of the environmental impact on a character, in this case Lutie James as a member of society with multiple strikes against her, from the fact that she is a woman and that she is black, to the fact that she is poor. Her fall is heightened by the fact that she is innately honest and hard working woman, and her own personal sense of integrity seems to provide a nobility that will carry her or make her seem sympathetic to the reader. She is also highly intelligent, combining with her street level perspective on the way things are in society."
