The most positive outcome was the creation of black jobs building all black neighborhoods, specifically in Richmond, Virginia. These jobs included craftsmen, builders, architects, contractors, and loan companies. In the last couple of weeks we have now discussed and read about black run newspapers. Ida B.
The year of 1965 the black community let out a collective victory cry. They had finally gotten the rights they fought hard for. They could at last vote, go to school and college, and got the working condition they deserve. They couldn 't have done it without Martin Luther King Jr., but there were a slew of cases that were tried and further assisted in opening the black community 's opportunity pool. They were well known cases, like the Plessy vs. Ferguson, Brown vs. Board of Education, and the Regents of the University vs. Bakke, all very influential cases in the fight for rights.
Over the past decades, from the 1800s until now, there have been so many influential African Americans in the world. African American who may have been the first black officer, doctor, nurse, or who may even have been the first black person to open up a school. These people have done wonders not only for their city but for the entire black community. Their actions have made young children inspired to do more with their lives. Because of these people, who fought for what’s right, children like me can be more than what we were told we could be.

With that, people now had a better understanding of the suffering and the prejudice done to African Americans. I believe, that our society is now better off with the words of M.L.K. We people need to speak up and not stay silent, hidden in the shadows so we can make a change just like the famous men and women before
On February 5th of 2008, President Obama said “change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time... we are the change that we seek.” Certainly, there were many changes that were made since the post-racial era. Many African-American athletes, authors, and musicians emerged, transforming the landscape of black culture in the United States. In addition, the late-twentieth century was a time of radical change in African-Americans’ political status. Nevertheless, Obama’s presidency owes its existence to post-racial era’s achievements. The fact that a black individual today can seriously contend for prestigious status like presidency can never be thought of before the post-racial era.
Discussion It’s upsetting that we live in a world that judges people because of their skin color. Even though, racial equality has improved a lot since the Civil Rights Movement, there is still a lot of judging people in the world. I do not think racial discrimination will ever go away but I do believe it will continue to get better and better as the years go on. Different races are slowly becoming involved in everything and getting treated the way they should.

The Black Power Movement was successful in many ways, and it’s legacy has had a powerful effect on how African Americans view themselves today. The encouragement generated by the movement for blacks to become more involved in public affairs resulted in the election of black mayors in several cities.

It also greatly raised the self-esteem and confidence of the majority of African Americans, and resulted in the birth of “a generation of black politicians, artists and intellectuals (who have) channelled the new black identity it first articulated in diverse and various
Another quote which reflects the different races is “Ferguson’s leadership was mostly white at the time of Brown’s death. But the new city manager, municipal judge and police chief are all black men. The city has also begun an effort to recruit more black officers to its department.”. This quote creates a positive connotation to the fact that more black men are being appointed.
