The title of the document being analyzed is David Walker’s Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World. This document was written as a book but, for the purpose of this lesson, condensed and placed only portions of two of the four original articles written in 1829. Around the time that this Appeal was written, numerous events paved an altered future for the citizens of the United States. In 1827, race riots erupted throughout Cincinnati, Ohio, resulting in over a thousand African Americans to flee to Canada.
Chaya, The number of immigrants spiked during this time. Some immigrants came to have a better life and some immigrants came to America seeking refuge.

In the story, “Brownies” by Z.Z. Packers the two main characters created different and clear ideas that shape the story. However, these two characters are oppositional of one another but carry the central theme to the story.

It is notable that the character, Arnetta is very forceful and manipulative much the opposite of the frequently overlooked and ignored, Laurel.
Isaiah Osby Prof.Ellis AFA 3104 4/2/15 Historical Synopsis: Presidential Reconstruction This passage of the article Presidential Reconstruction started off by talking about a couple of things that were going on at that time.

The Great Migration and/in the Congregation The Great Migration was the migration occurred within the United States between 1910 and 1970 which saw the displacement of about seven million African Americans from the southern states to those in the North, Midwest and West. The reasons that led thousands of African Americans to leave the southern states and move to the northern industrial cities were both economic and social, related to racism, job opportunities in the industrial cities and the search of better lives, the attempts to escape racism and the Jim Crow Laws that took them away the right to vote. As every social phenomena, the Great Migration had both positive and negative effects; in my opinion the Great Migration can be considered a negative development in the short and medium term, but, if we analyze the benefits brought to the African-American communities in the long term, their fight for integration has shaped the history of the United States in its progress to democracy and civil rights.
The African-Americans wanted to migrate North because the social conditions were difficult to live with in the South. The prejudice toward African-Americans in the South was too great to be ignored. The African-Americans wanted to be seen as equal and they knew that the wait for social equality in the South would take too long. Moving to the North not only gave the possibility of social equality, but there were also more job opportunities and the Northerners did not view African-Americans the way Southerners did. African-Americans were presented with “better educational opportunities and greater personal freedom [in the North]” (Crew 36).
A lot of stuff happened in eighth grade, some good, some bad. For one good thing, every time at the end of quarter, we would do nothing and just play games, eat pizza, and watch movies.

Black migration slowed considerably in the 1930s, when the country sank into the Great Depression, but picked up again with the coming of World War II. By 1970, when the Great Migration ended, its demographic impact was unmistakable: Whereas in 1900, nine out of every 10 black Americans lived in the South, and three out of every four lived on farms, by 1970 the South was home to less than half of the country’s African-Americans, with only 25 percent living in the region’s rural
When I reached America, I started to remember my childhood. I was the youngest of 4 children. I had a sister and two brothers. We were all crammed into a small hut. We all slept on one blanket on the floors made of cow poop.
