Because of wars, financial crisis, terrorism and race issues, Rivera's Mural has something that makes many of us hopeful that one day we all will be united and be able to grow as a community. Rivera's ideologies give significance to breakthroughs of technology and opinions, but it shows how this can be better if we come together. The Mural of "Man at the Crossroads" should not be of one at a crossroad but rather a path of unity where one does not have to choose two great paths. Rivera's message was seen as means to question the validity of science or religion, capitalism or communism, or utopia or dystopia as a means to make people think what was really right, and the answer was anyone of them if you had a strong case to back it up (Anreus 210-211). In conclusion, "Man at the Crossroads" by Diego Rivera is quite a piece that shows that Man can have both if they decide to unite.
This strategy caused circulation figures around 360,000. In a way to create a greater mass distribution area, newsboys would buy newspapers in bulk and would sell them on the corners of streets.

Martin Luther King Jr is the most iconic civil rights leader in history. If anyone is unsure of his significance, they could simply take a trip to Washington, D.C to view his magnificent monument. Dr. King in the 1950s and 1960s, led protests and spoke on numerous occasions about injustice and segregation within the African American community.

While Mr. King was in Memphis for that trip in 1968, a man shot him on a balcony outside of his motel room. After his loss, it was hard for many, but the nice thing you do see was that there was marching crowds and there were people of various races. Mr. King was a good impact on me and he made me realize many things in this crazy world of ours. He was just not the man who helped African-Americans he was also someone who enlightened everyone in America, someone who saw the peace when no one else could in our civilization. He was a great man and will be forever missed by many, and by any
Once the bus boycott ended, the government officially changed the laws so that everyone, no matter the race, could ride all forms of transportation and sit anywhere they pleased. The new law also stated that African Americans were now permitted to drive buses because it was unconstitutional to prohibit them from working (January 32).

His magnificent speeches were given all over the world, allowing many to realize that discrimination by race was unacceptable proving that the laws needed to change.

Walking along, Spiderman and Elsa greeted me, but when Tom Cruise walked onto a stage set up in the middle of Times Square, I became star struck. I walked effortlessly around Times Square. My feet were begging me for mercy, but my heart was not listening. There were millions of people and loud cars, but I was in another universe and could not hear the noise pollution. I was mano a mano with a moment I wanted to remember forever.
Artwork The pillars supporting the bridge on the eastern end are painted with huge murals as part of Chicano Park, the largest collection of Chicano art murals in the world.  This neighborhood park and mural display were created in response to a community uprising in 1970, which protested the negative effects of the bridge and Interstate 5 on the Barrio Logan community. Local artist Salvador Torres proposed using the bridge and freeway pillars as a giant canvas for Chicano art at a time when urban wall murals were rare in the United States, and he and many other artists created the murals when permission for the park was finally granted in 1973. Suicide bridge It is the third deadliest suicide bridge in the USA, trailing only

The hot summers came along with intense heat, heavy rainfall, mosquitoes everywhere, and open sewers. Although these odors did a great danger on the people’s health business would still go on. Since the Americans had just won the Revolutionary War everyone was celebrating and too busy to notice the fever walking among them. In the streets of Philadelphia quarantine was very low standard. “Dead dish and gooey vegetable matter were exposed and rotted, while swarms of insects droned in the heavy, humid air.” Even though no one had cared about how sanitary the city was this was one of the reasons the disease spread.
Dr. King’s “Letter From a Birmingham Jail” goes in to detail about the injustice that existed on the streets of America in the 1960s, and it can still be used now to discuss the injustice on the streets today. King discusses how unjust laws were made to broken (such as with Hitler and the Jewish population and the Hungarian Freedom Fighters), and that no progress would ever be made if actions weren’t taken immediately. Today, issues with police brutality and racism against immigrants (“They are taking our jobs!” is a line often used by the white population of America when talking about jobs they would never consider applying for anyway) is at an all-time high, and Dr. King’s letter can be applied to the current situation: action must be taken immediately. Americans today are split between sides – one side favors movements such as Black Lives Matter, while the other often makes comments
The second mural is now depicting king on looking 250,000 protesters at the capital of the nation on the verge of giving his famous “I Have a Dream Speech.” This was a monumental moment for the civil rights movement and for king because on that day he did something that no other civil rights leader has been able to do. On this day King was able to unite an immense amount of black and white American protesters together with the dream of creating equality for everyone. Equality was an issue that was very controversial in America in the 1960’s. The general view of the public was that the majority of white Americans didn’t agree with equality for African American’s but after this legendary day everyone could see that there were thousands of white
