The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified on July 28, 1868. The amendment granted citizenship to everyone who was born or naturalized in the United States, which included former slaves and African Americans who were freed after the Civil War. Also, the amendment allowed African Americans to be treated equally as all other citizens. However, the Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws, and the result of the Plessy v. Ferguson case took away these rights that were guaranteed to African Americans.
I visited the Arkansas Art Museum on October 20, 2015. The title of the exhibit was called, “Dos Mujeres,” otherwise known in English as Two Women. This artwork was created by Diego Rivera who was from Mexico. This was a piece of art that portrays cubism and was huge; 77 ¾ x 63 ½ to be exact. The painting had one women on the left, sitting down with a book in her and and the other on the right standing up. This artwork was created in 1914 and the medium was oil on canvas. The name of the gallery was called the Winthrop Rockefeller Gallery. This gallery was located towards the back of the museum. I didn’t know which exhibit to choose because there were a variety of beautiful pieces but I chose this one because it was one of my favorites. The
Before we look at the different Social/Psychological Determinants of Health it is important firstly to define what a social determinant of health is. According to the World Health Organization (2017) “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.” These conditions are as a result of a wide range of factors that are ultimately governed by the way in which money, power and specific resources are shared at different levels including those at global, national and local levels. We have all been a part of and will experience different social determinants of health throughout our lives but it is the standard at which we experience these determinants that will ultimately lead onto them affecting our health or ultimately leaving us unaffected.
“Nothing endures, not a tree, not love, not even death by violence” (Knowles 14). John Knowles famous quote in his work A Separate Peace does more than leave a lasting memory.

Chrysler, a well-known American automobile business, took the opportunity to capitalize off of one of the country’s biggest events, by premiering a heartwarming Chrysler 200 promotional ad during the Super Bowl. They were clever in their tactics because the commercial was able to reach a large amount of people, due to the millions of viewers that tune into the game every year. This alone could have increased the sales of the new car, which was the company’s purpose, but they didn’t stop there.

When we are forgotten, we cease to exist. Throughout the centuries the legends of King Arthur are told both as fable and non-fiction. Though every story has the same concept, each story differs in some way. Most characters reappear in each legend, but may have a different role in the story. Characters such as Guinevere, Merlin, Lancelot, and Arthur's knights show up in every story. In Merlin, Merlin is a powerful wizard that takes Arthur to raise until he can take the throne. On the other hand, in the movie King Arthur shows a more classic side of the story where there is no magic and Arthur was raised by his parents.
