He coached the Grambling State Tigers for an astounding 56 years, beginning way back in 1941 and coming to conclusion in 1997.

His final record is 408 wins, 165 losses, and 15 ties. Robinson also has won 17 Southwestern Conference championships and 9 black college football championships. He also recruited approximately 200 players that

After the trial, Tom Robinson was placed at the Enfield Prison Farm, which was seventy miles away in Chester County (Lee 293). Tom Robinson had to wait for the higher court to review his case (Lee 293). However, Tom attempted to escape from the prison and was shot seventeen times (Lee 315). Even though Tom Robinson was declared guilty, the trial was still consequential. The jury spent a long time deciding if Tom Robinson was guilty or innocent. During that time period, it was unlikely for a jury to spend time deciding the innocence of a black person. Miss Maudie believed the justice system was taking baby steps towards racial equality (Lee 289). In addition, Jem and Scout lost part of their innocence. Jem was confident that his father was

In Edwin Arlington Robinson’s poems, “Richard Cory” and “Miniver Cheevy” the main characters are portrayed as outcasts. Both are shunned from society neither having any real friends. Though these characters have some similarities, the way in which Robinson portrays them is very different.

One man appearing to have everything takes his own life, while the other appearing to have nothing accepts his misery.
The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side: Diction, Symbolism and Imagery in Robinson’s “Richard Cory” Oftentimes in poetry, something that appears simple is, in fact, very complex upon deeper evaluation. Edwin Arlington Robinson does exactly this in his poem, “Richard Cory,” by creating an accessible poem that can then be picked apart to reveal a deeper meaning. Upon first glance, the poem appears to be an interesting narrative about the idolization of a rich aristocrat from the perspective of a poor commoner with whom he interacts.

This is achieved through
