I saw that the best thing I could do was get hold of a dictionary—to study, to learn some words. I was lucky enough to reason also that I should try to improve my penmanship. It was sad. I couldn’t even write in a straight line. It was both ideas together that moved me to request a dictionary along with some tablets and pencils from the Norfolk Prison Colony school. 1. He is motivated. 2. He asks for study materials. 3. His goal is to learn vocabulary and improve his handwriting. “get hold of a dictionary…along with some tablets and pencils” “the best thing I could do…moved me” “to study, to learn some words…to improve my penmanship”
Every time I catch a plane, I have with me a book that I want to read—and that’s a lot of books these days. If I weren’t out here every day battling the white man, I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity—because you can hardly mention anything I’m not curious about. I don’t think anybody ever got more out of going to prison than I did. In fact, prison enabled me to study far more intensively than I would have if my life had gone differently and I had attended some college. I imagine that one of the biggest troubles with colleges is there are too many distractions, too much panty-raiding, fraternities, and boola-boola and all of that. Where else but in prison could I have attacked my ignorance by being able to study intensely sometimes as much as fifteen hours a day? 1.He loves reading. 2.He is a race activist. 3.He has un unquenchable curiosity. “I want to read…a lot of books” “battling the white man” “hardly anything…I’m not curious about” 1.Prison gave him an education. 2.Colleges waste a lot of time. 3.Knowledge is a weapon for him. “ colleges…there are too many distractions ” “ prison enabled me to study far more intensively ” “attacked my ignorance”
