Religion in Things Fall Apart Religion is the belief in a greater power, which shapes the way someone lives their life. Religion can bring people together, or it can pull them apart.

Settlers were curious about the land to the west, they wanted to spread their religion and express themselves freely. It was all sunshine and rainbows for the settlers, but they were pushing the Natives off their homeland and forcing them to find new land.

Everything started to be tightened after the night of 18 February 1965, when the state troopers of Alabama suppress a peaceful march in Marion. During the suppression, an Alabama state trooper intentionally, in my opinion, shot Jimmie Lee Jackson when he tried to protect his mother from the violence of the state troopers. At the funeral of Jimmie L. Jackson, Doctor King mentioned in his speech that, “He was murdered by the brutality of every sheriff who practices lawlessness in the name of law. He was murdered by the irresponsibility of every politician, from governors on down, who has fed his constituents the stale bread of hatred and the spoiled meat of racism.
