We choose the scene because this scene starts the argument between Mama and Mrs. Carter. Mama does not agree that a black people should commit suicide because they feel ashamed of their skin color. Mama feels upset that Mrs. Carter claims that the black people do not have future. It also shows how Mama really defends her race.
b) How long was the scene? Could it be lengthen/shorten without changing the meaning of the play?
The scene is about 2 minutes. It cannot be lengthen because the audiences might feel bored watching the scene. If it is too long, there would be no suspense feeling to the audiences. Besides, it also cannot be shorten because the audience will not understand the storyline of the scene.
