symbolism"When a door close, another door will open."In the Flint Hooverville, the campfire is more than just a place for folks to gather and listen to music or chit-chat. The campfire is a real melting pot of diversity. As Bud notes about the people there, "They were all the colors you could think of, black, white and brown, but the fire made everyone look like they were different shades of orange. There were dark orange folks sitting next to medium orange folks sitting next to light orange folks" After Bud's mother dies, he has a tough time sleeping. Like Bugs says, "… everybody knows how you like to sleep with that knife open so I figured it's best to grab holt of you so's you wouldn't wake up slicing nobody"

In the book Bud, Not Buddy, the setting takes place in the 1936. In the 1930’s The Great Depression took place here in North America and Europe. The Great Depression was an economic slump; it also was the longest and most severe depressionever experienced by the industrialized Western world.America's future appeared to shine brightly for most Americans when Herbert Hoover was inaugurated president in 1929. The Hoover term was just months old when the nation sustained the most ruinous business collapse in its history.The optimism so prevalent during the Renaissance years of the 1920's disappeared as the black unemployment rate soared. The Great Depressions was a hard life for people back then. Clearly, the Great Depression was a really bad economic slump.
