Summary

Chapter 7

Sepha decides to visit his Uncle, now that he doesn’t have to worry about going to work. He’s only seen his Uncle a few times since they lived together when Sepha first came to America. He places telephone calls to his Uncle, as well as Ken, Joe, and his store. Each time he doesn’t leave a message, unable to bring himself to speak. He remembers what it was like when he first arrived in America. Like Ken and Joe, he was there as a student. Joe eagerly took a bunch of philosophical classes that ultimately didn’t end up leading him anywhere. He’d always relate his lessons to life back in Africa. Ken finally snapped one day and accused Joe of romanticizing Africa. He said Joe would rather live comfortably in America instead of returning to Africa.
