Name: Terry v. Ohio 392 US1 Supreme Court 1968 Facts: The incident occurred on October 31st 1963 at approximately 2:30pm in the afternoon. The police officer who was dressed in plain clothes was attracted by Terry and Chilton who were casing a store. With 30 years of prior experience in the area. The officer knew casing when he saw it. He had been assigned to that area specifically in search for shoplifters and pick pockets.
They made speeches and they tried to convince people that slavery is not a normal thing. For instance, Frederick Douglass in his speech “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?” tried to prove that white people and the black nation are equal. He gave examples that among African- Americans, people created their own societies, had normal jobs, they started their families, brought up children and they have their own language. They used newspapers and books as well. They wanted to show their ideas to the northern states.
When he turned 11, he found a job that allowed him to set pins at a downtown bowling alley. When he turned 12, he convinced himself that it was time for a real job. Desperately, Dr. Anderson went door to door to every merchant in the downtown of South Blend, Indiana asking for a job. To his luck, an owner of a local typewriter company by the name of Marion Forbes hired him. Determined to do what the other boys in the company were able to do, Dr. Anderson made it his business to do better than whatever they did.
Born into a world of slavery,Douglass drove himself to escape slavery and stop any others from going through it. His escape was planned for September 3rd of 1838. After taking freedom papers and a sailor suit from an African American seaman, he would hop the train to freedom and adventure. To escape Douglass knew he would have to pass by the conductor with his papers. It was hard since he looked nothing like the man in the paper, yet the conductor acted as if he didn’t care.
Shortly after he bought the shop and started to teach the trade of a barber to young, free, black boys, he started to keep a diary. He kept this diary up to when he was murdered in the year of 1851. Now that his business investment of 300 dollars had grown to 3,000 dollars, he was a prominent citizen in the community of free blacks. Having this status he was impeccably dressed and sure of the future. He was looking to find
The Abolitionist By Deonte Archie 10/28/17 The time had come for the abolishment of the era of slavery. Those that were were ready for a change and willing to speak out were growing. One such person was Josiah Wedge who made a medallion that represented the Abolitionist slave. The Medallion contained a picture of a slave asking a question "Am i not a man and a brother?"
The original minstrel performances were used as an outlet for “working class white youth” to express “their own sense of marginalization through identification with African-American culture forms” (Starr & Waterman, 46). Even when Thomas Dartmouth Rice’s song Jim Crow became popular in 1829, it was still being used as a way to make fun of the upper classes. It wasn’t until entrepreneurs and promoters got ahold of it in the 1840s that it became the hateful show we know it as today. Over the next several years, the show became more ridged in its format and the characters of several black stereotypes emerged to fulfill the yearning of whites to find racial differences in order to retain slavery. Even within minstrelsy itself the darker skinned
In his 1852 speech “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”, Frederick Douglass voices an authentic critique on the “peculiar institution” of American slavery. In a constructive yet patriotic tone, he argues for the end of slavery through his understanding of reason and the revolutionary ideals which America was founded upon. The language that the famed abolitionist leader develops within his oration provides a framework to approach issues of race and discrimination that exist in our modern world. In particular, Douglass’ historical declamation can be employed to analyze the recent event concerning the vandalism and ethnic targeting of Asian-American students at Columbia University.
As historical documents, the slave narrative serves as a lens to the evolution of white supremacy in the South in the eighteenth century through the twentieth century Jim Crow South to the disfranchisement of Blacks today. These narratives give voice to the generations of Blacks who may not have had their stories told because any evidence of what occurred was destroyed or was told from the oppressor’s perspective. In William Wells Brown’s Clotel; or, The President’s Daughter: Narrative of a Slave Life (1853), the author shows the dilemma of the African American through the mulatto character. Brown’s narrative acts like an instrument to project the propaganda of the abolitionist by disclosing the brutal institution of slavery. The narrative develops around explicitly, powerful scenes that show the many experiences of the mulatto in the antebellum era through the social constraints that bind her.

This case study we will talk about the migration of African Americans, from the south to northern and western cities in the mid-twentieth century, which was one of the most significant demographic changes in The United States. This study will talk about different behaviors, theories, and how geographic context can play a role in people’s life such as: social groups, time periods, and comparative settings. Also, the two mechanisms we will focus on are instrumental mechanism and psychological mechanism. We will also talk about how diversity is important for people and the nation.
As I would see it the African American ''Great Migration'' development was a gigantic occasion that happened in the early 1900s, where a huge number of African Americans traveling from the South toward the North, Midwest and the West to get away from the ''different however not equivalent'' statement, which is known as the Jim Crow. The purpose behind this move financially, was for African Americans to look for some kind of employment or take after a particular profession way and African Americans Southerners trusted that political mistreatment, bigotry and partiality against blacks was essentially less extreme in the North. 2.What were at least 3 “push” factors (general or specific) which motivated many African Americans to move out of the
The black slaves of colonial American brought their own culture from Africa. Contributed greatly to the development of American’s own dance, music, art, food and clothing. When Africans were taken from their homeland and brought to America as slaves, they also brought with them their individual cultures, languages and customs. Culture defines people’s values, beliefs, and personal interests. Culture is important because it allows people to maintain their identity.
African American Studies was a great experience. Has opened my eyes to my surrounding and the world around me. This course with Dr. Sheba Lo, was something out of me confront zone. I learned so many things from race to cultural to the importance aspect of African American. We are isolated to an environment that hide so much history that we all don’t think they are important to who we have become.
