My book The Moves That Make The Man, was set in North Carolina. During this time the civil rights movement was in full swing. The two main characters Braxton Rivers and Jerome Foxworthy are best friends. In the book, they become better friends every page turn. My project is a basketball with tape and symbols/pictures on it. My project is extremely symbolic tho it doesn’t look like much.
The tape stand symbolizes how Jerome and Braxton are keeping each other up. With no Braxton, Jerome wouldn’t be standing. Jerome has had many difficulties and Bix [ Braxton], has helped all the way through. With no Jerome, Bix would never get the training for his basketball match versus his stepfather. Jerome and Bix have a very crucial relationship
