Not only does it give people of color a voice, it also helps educate white people about things like systemic racism. America cannot grow any further until the treatment of people of color is addressed and changed and Black Lives Matter is actively helping that happen. Black Lives Matter is a group that is very near and dear to my heart and I was so thankful to be able to speak at length with Joshua about all that the group does. Joshua, a young black man, was able to provide a valuable perspective about BLM and all that it has achieved and overcome.
Response #2 Hello Dixie Castro, I enjoyed reading your great post. Indeed, healthcare providers trust is an issue for arrays of African American elders as the result of the atrocities that have befallen these populaces over the past generations (LaVeist, Nickerson, & Bowie, 2000). Henceforth, it is imperative for the advanced nurse practitioners to be adept and establish an understanding of some added histories related to the Tuskegee’s Men with abilities to listen attentively to establish needed rapport to the patient-provider relationship. With the establishment of a good rapport with a patient of older African American men, allowing and encouraging them to be an active participant in their healthcare which, indicate to them a respect for
The war was about ending slavery, and Stowe took that issue and gave America an idea what being an African American slave really meant. She took actual scenarios of slave mistreatment and incorporated them into truth for the world to see. She took a risk for writing this book, and the fact that she wrote this during the Civil War shows her true character. It also influenced the African American dream, and the equality and freedom they were yearning for (The African American Dream
“To Kill a Mockingbird,” which is called an “American classic” in a detailed topic description posted on the district 's curriculum site, was being used to help students develop “an appreciation for how ethical principles or laws of life can help people live successfully,” (Camera). According to the article, Biloxi, Mississippi removed the classic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” due to complaints about its racially charged language. The district decided to remove the book from the required reading list in reaction to the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, VA. That being the case, school districts around the country are working to figure out a positive and ethical manner in which to prepare students to recognize racial discrimination
We can also examine the work of M.J. Maher in “Racism and Cultural Diversity : Cultivating Racial Harmony Through Counselling, Group Analysis, and Psychotherapy” as he goes through the steps of healing and prosperity of races. He describes how he used his knowledge gained from Manchester Metropolitan University to apply them in his everyday life as a counselor who specifically targeted people who were in need of finding themselves after being broken down due to racism. By doing so, he was also able to find his “sense of belonging” and has been using his skills to boost the confidence of those in need of some (Maher 324). When reflecting back to “Brownies”, we can see how the girls would encourage each other and they found comfort in being a group that was close and
The southern and inner parts of Atlanta were shown to be predominantly black while there were less black families in the southern and outer parts of the city. Racial segregation and Non-White poverty rates are conflated to contribute to concentrated disadvantage. People living in the inner city are more susceptible to living in a destitute state. This is largely contributed to redlining. Redlining is when financial institutions prevent poorer communities from receiving financial assistance.
The real world can be a pain, but it can also be one of our most important learning resources by teaching us beneficial lessons that a normal school education does not. Jem and Scout slowly recognize this as they grow up on the racist streets of Alabama in Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird. Atticus, Jem and Scout’s father, is a white lawyer defending a black man during the great depression of the 1930s. As Jem and Scout witness the trial of Tom Robinson, a black man accused of rape, and the everyday events of Maycomb they start to understand a little bit more about ‘Maycomb 's usual disease’. Real life events, and activities provide Jem and Scout with the valuable lessons they would never have the chance to learn in school.
I enrolled into this class as a way to gain a richer context to race and ethnicity as it applies to my experiences. As a young African American male, race plays a very large in my daily life. This was especially true during my childhood as I grewing up in a predominantly white community. As a way to deflect microaggression-- a term I just learned describes the actions of many towards me during my youth-- I attempted to downplay my race when possible. Through this, I feel a rift has formed between myself and those who also identify as black.
Martin Luther King Junior’s last speech I’ve Been to the Mountaintop hadn’t only given hope to people who were treated badly because of their skin color, but also, led to people becoming more accepting of African Americans as well as empowering others listening to the speech not to quit the fight of social injustice. Martin Luther King Junior’s last speech “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” gave hope to countless African Americans in many ways. In the beginning, “MLK” starts by talking about “Something is happening in Memphis; something is happening in the world. ”(paragraph 2).
Through the Summer Urban Health Fellowship, I will be able to understand the health disparities within communities allowing me to help my community medically one day to the best of my abilities. I want to gain new knowledge of the health disparities communities like where I come from, face. Currently, I am taking a class on the health in the Latino/Chicano population. This class has broadened my horizons. It has exposed me to how things such as race, social class, income, access to resources, environment, and many other things has an outstanding impact on the quality and quantity of health care they receive.

Less than ten percent of mental health cases in the African American community is reported to health center. However, that statistics does not cover the amount of people who suffer from these behind closed doors. There is a stigma place in the Black community, that if you seek or speak out about your mental Illness you are perceived as weak or less of a person. The question that have arose is where this stigma stemmed from. Through research, the most reoccurring explanation is that there is not enough mental health care centers in areas that black people are populated.
In February of 2007 Heather Andrea Williams published a novel titled Self-Taught: African American Education in Slavery and Freedom. In chapter six, Williams specifically focuses on African-American’s teaching in freed people’s schools. Williams makes the claim that African-American’s entered the classroom as teachers, but not without some battles to overcome. I had always been taught that in some (most?) places it was illegal to teach African-Americans, more specifically slaves, to read.
She was fifty - three years old. A vast remainder of her life stood in front of her that should have been fulfilled with watching her children prosper, retirement and blissful moment. That was only fair. She had strived through poverty when she was younger, lost her husband at thirty - six, giving her the emotional and financial burden to raise three children on her own, aided others as a CNA for most of her career hood and never succumbed to any of it. So shouldn’t life have been easier for her now?
