Strength in the face of Injustice and Inhumanity

Anna and her loved ones constantly face some form of inhumanity and injustice, themes representative of the system she was sold into. Immediately from the scenes describing Anna’s secret where she taught herself how to read and write, readers get a sense of the strength in character Anna has. Such strength was essential, too, for her escape north was not a journey that would have been successful had Anna not found the resolve and the desire to ache for freedom as much as she does. Other characters represent this theme as well; Daniel, Mrs. Rosa, Tucker, and others all face certain situations in which we find their strength bleeding through.
