Similarity, pain is also expressed in Touched by an Angel but has a solution “Yet if we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls” (Angelou). Correlated with hope, the use of personification implies that boldness comes with hope and is needed for a better outcome.

Hudgins believed in the biblical justification for the inferiority of African Americans. This idea was that African Americans were descendants of Ham and therefore were cursed like Ham to a life of serving the white race.
