Characters

Myop

An innocent, ten-year-old black girl at the start of the story, enjoying a walk and gathering flowers on a nice day. She has no cares in the world and is happy. She discovers a dead man and is unafraid. She proceeds to collect a flower and discovers a noose, and in the tree, some remains of the rope. She lays down her flowers: innocence is lost.

Dead Man

A dead black man who has been hanged. He is decapitated by the lynching and by hanging for so long. His body is in decay but it is evident that he was a tall, big-boned man. The sight of him, having been killed in a lynching, alerts Myop to the presence of evil in the world.
