Though Ernest J. Gaines’s powerful novel A Lesson Before Dying is considered a fictional work, it is rooted in truth in two ways. For one thing, it is loosely based on a true story: In 1945, a black teenager named Willie Francis was detained and sentenced to death by electrocution for the murder of a pharmacist. In complete contrast to A Lesson Before Dying’s Jefferson, Francis eventually did confess to the crime (though allegedly, under duress) and managed to survive not one, but two attempted executions. Some other hard-to-ignore facts: The jury was all white. There was never really any evidence to detain Francis in the first place. Be sure to introduce students to Francis’s story, as it mirrors and contrasts that of Jefferson’s in quite interesting ways.
Most importantly, though, A Lesson Before Dying is true, and brutally so, because of the very-real themes it presents, particularly about race, prejudice, and death. Slavery had been abolished by the 1940s, but its effects still lingered through segregation and the unjust Jim Crow laws. And just like with “real” history, these themes resonate today, as racism and inequality are still prevalent. For example, the novel demonstrates the negative correlation between under-funded education and the success rate of students of color, through the fates of Grant Wiggins’s students. These students who do not succeed are more likely to work in the fields or even end up in jail. Gaines’s novel will surely educate students about the horrible treatment African Americans endured during this period of inequality and hate. Encourage open and meaningful discussion; allow students to express outrage, confusion, sadness, or all of the above. Consider reflecting on how readers might (or might not) have felt differently about Jefferson’s situation had he not been sentenced to death and only imprisoned, or had he committed the crime after all (like Willie Francis). These nuanced conversations will likely lead to greater questions: Where is the line between justice and injustice? How might we correct the flaws in our court system today?
These themes alone are enough to make A Lesson Before Dying a valuable, necessary part of your syllabus, but in case you aren’t convinced, there is plenty more to learn from the novel. You can facilitate students’ analysis of Grant’s pessimistic tone, several instances of symbolism (the butterfly, the flags), and the various philosophical allusions that crop up. We hope these highlights below will convince you to give this heartbreaking, historically significant work a try.

We cannot have any problem with the electronic viewfinder, because is part of the camera, with this viewfinder we can see the picture that we will take.
A camera lens can be huge or tiny, but we cannot hurt anyone with them, and headphones are harmless.
In this example we have a tripod, there are different types of tripods, but always have three legs, and we could hurt someone if we don't carry it properly.
