The Color Purple Letter Twenty-Four Summary

  • Celie bathes Shug because Mr.__ is too squeamish to do it – even though they’ve had three children together.
  • While she looks at Shug’s naked body, Celie feels like she’s turned into a man because she’s in awe of Shug.
  • Shug asks Celie how many kids she’s had and Celie says she’s had two but she doesn’t know where they’re at. Shug says her children are with her mother, but she doesn’t miss them.
