During this time, African Americans started to embrace their cultural differences from white Americans. They started to create art, music, and literature that represented their history and culture. Part of this culture included the
Frances Harper was one of the most prominent African American poets during this time period. Frances Harper was not only important for her work as a poet but also for her work she did in helping with the Underground Railroad. Frances Harper worked directly with slave fugitives proving that she was going to do what it takes to help those people. Frances Harper’s second book, Poems on Miscellaneous Subjects I think helps make her a prominent writer. The book includes the poems “Eliza Harris” and “The Slave Auction” that attack slavery directly.
Franklin D Roosevelt: Civil Rights Movement Franklin D Roosevelt has made many choices in the civil right movement that have led them to get the African Americans their rights that they wanted.

The culture I 've chosen to explore for this assignment is the African American culture. This culture has many many struggles that have been faced for as long as anyone can remember, I am specifically referring to the days when slaves were considered the norm. A good event I got recommended to go to from a good friend of mine was the Slaves of the State event. This event was so much more informing than I thought it would be and to be honest, it was something I needed to go to because I learned so much from it. This event was presented by Dennis Childs, who is an Associate Professor of African American literature at the University of California in San Diego.
First I use the example of Florida essay of a quality of players. He wrote that the reason people shoes a location to live in has to do with their interest, value around the location. With the analysis of our use my Lynn essay for the African the national Museum of African American history and culture as my Lynn essay with emphasizing the importance of having this is the historic museum in American society. The Museum not only designates with the African American but many who are passion who have the same feeling about value American hold or the event hat happened to African American, namely slavery in history. The existence of the museum in DC could more African American to a visit DC or even, in fact, move to live there, which would bring diversity and inclusion more to the city.
As Gentrification and politics change our very neighborhoods, we must reflect on the differences and the struggles of equality in our life. Fortunately for me , I feel as if I lived in a city that is known as a Mecca for African Americans. Atlanta has served as a Mecca for racial unrest in cultures ultimately creating peace and tranquility in Georgia’s State Capital. As a majority African American city, black people make an impact on the city and serve as the power of the city. Through my project, I wanted to show how prominent figures that are mostly born in Atlanta (some were born in other parts of Georgia or moved at early ages) reflect and support the community when dealing with black struggles in society.
One of his most famous works is “Negro,” which is a poem that highlights African American identity through the personification of African American heritage. The narrator is the personified figure that connects African Americans by explaining historical allusions that contributed to African American heritage and culture. This personified narrator enhances the theme of unified heritage among African Americans in the poem “Negro” with the use of structure, historical parallels, and historical context. One of the ways the use of personification in “Negro” enhances the theme of unified heritage is by manifesting African American history and experience structurally into one person, who is also the narrator. Hughes wrote this poem in the first person, so the poem is laden with “my,”
• The ethnic group I have decided to research is African Americans. I chose this ethnic group because I only know what I know about them through what I have learned in school over the years.

I have always been fascinated on different variables that affect young minorities’ emotional, mental, and physical behaviors. I came across this scholarly Journal of Black Psychology in my Psychology of the African American Experience. This field is very important to me because it speak about the community that I connect with and mention that there are different psychological theories and methods that should be used to based on minorities and not a universal
This paper discusses the definition of “black” identity in U.S. history and culture with reference to two primary texts from the course: the novel Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and the speech ”A more perfect union” by Barack Obama. The novel discusses the narrow perception of exquisiteness in African society, which is deeply influenced by Western, especially American, ideals and how black people are represented in today’s society and culture. The means of what it means to be black in America today lies within race and class, even though it can be argued that there was a loss of identity centuries ago, in spite of America being a melting pot of culture. Ira Berlin observes in the epilogue to “The Making of African America” that during
My grandmother, my mother and I all have the same views on our racial/ethnic cultural heritage. We are proud to be African Americans but we do not deeply identify with our heritage. We are glad to be African Americans but our goal in life is to just be successful. We acknowledge our African American history to educate ourselves on ethnic culture, but we do not think heavily about our racial culture. This may be because we do not really have a specific African heritage that we can deeply identify with.
