He thought that if they continued to persevere, they could eventually become important in the government, etc., but they should not be placed at the top with no practice or experience. On page 91 of the book, Booker says, "Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work. " Booker set a good example for the country by putting what he said into practice, and teaching his students to start at the beginning and work their way up. Not only did he teach them from books, but he also taught them how to build, clean, and cook. Booker looked at the trials in his life as a blessing; He saw that they strengthened and humbled him.
Unfortunately even after the act was passed and Martin Luther King won the noble peace prize for the ban of segregation, people needed time to absorb the change especially in the southern states. While both movies share a lot in common, a lot of differences exist. Like “Lincoln”, Salma is about the procedures of political maneuvering that allowed the resulting deal. However in “Salma”, Negros play a more important role in getting their rights and the media has a bigger influence, as for Lincoln, it’s the white people who lead all the action. The movie “Lincoln” starts with 2 black union soldiers who share their exploits with the president.
In 1963 Martin Luther King called for an end to racism, in which he spoke the words "I have a dream". These four words would come to be one of the most famous phrases in America 's history. Martin Luther King, gave the speech to an audience of more than two hundred and fifty thousand supporters of civil rights and the speech was heard throughout the world. He gave this speech during the March to Washington for jobs and freedom, in which he shared his dreams of equality and freedom, which he believed could rise from the hate and slavery in America. Even if slavery had been gone for more then 100 years, African-Americans were still being treated unfair and were not completely free.
The South at the time was going through economic chaos and needed aid. With Lincoln’s passing, it was up to Andrew Johnson to handle Reconstruction in the South. There was hope that Johnson was going to be just like the Great Emancipator. Everything seemed uncertain with the new president since even under the National Union Party name, the new president acted like a Southern Jacksonian Democrat. At first, most Republicans supported Johnson’s reconstruction policies.
He did what he believed in. In Robinsons letter to the president he addressed how the world just keeps saying be patient and then wouldn’t do anything, he called out the president on how he isn’t helping everyone, he is hurting everyone. (Robinson, letter) and (Wilson,web). Robinson’s impact on society portrayed his legacy as a great one and made people realize that he was a hero, but also that everyone can be a hero. Jackie Robinson truly has left an impact as the man who broke the color barrier.
In 1619 the Dutch were first to bring African Americans slaves to our country. Which evolved into a nightmare for our country and would later divide us. Slavery continued through the 17th and 18th centuries, which made America very wealthy from selling tobacco and cotton. Slavery continued all the way up to 1863 when U.S president Abraham Lincoln signed the emancipation proclamation that freed all slaves and gave them the right to be Americans. But slaves did not officially become free until 1865 after the civil war.
“When he looks at the camera dead-on (the Cold Harbor photograph everyone knows, the one in front of the tent), there is an unfathomable opacity to him: an impenetrability that almost seems to dare people to impute things to him. He won us the war, he helped save the Plains Indians, he was the steady if tormented guarantor of Reconstruction (at least while he was president the black people had a chance); he evinced calm bravery in vetoing the inflation bill of 1874 (in the face of overwhelming political pressure to the contrary)- these are the remarkable things he did.”(3). The author explains throughout the book that Grant was a writer of famously simple military orders, and he was capable of an almost cold-blooded disinterestedness in giving judgments about strategy: he saw things bluntly and directly. With rare combinations of qualities of character and mind in which made him a great commander, there was and is no question about Ulysses S.
Daniel Webster was very expressive in The Seventh of March Speech. He talked about how America should be a place of peace, liberty, and strength. However, his words certainly did not match up with the fact that he was a bystander of the injustice of slavery. His speech lacked the importance of African American 's circumstances entirely. Although his speech, informed us that his primary concern was that America be strongly united, and secure, built on a good foundation, able to resolve issues, and act as a national family, he doesn 't suggest nor help create a resolution to the issue.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Lyndon B. Johnson were two exceptional men who made this country superior in the idea of desegregation. King refrained from abandoning his neighbors in the reality of injustice. King conducted marches from place to place to exude nonviolent protests, determined to abolish the unjust approach towards African Americans. President Johnson would soon realize that the parade of African Americans would not relinquish their goal until the head of state put forth his input and supported them, allowing them to register to vote. With President Johnson’s speech, he recognizes to the public how unjust African Americans were being treated and that the racial actions at the time should have been put to an end.
