Sometime we don’t understand why at the time but, as life unfolds we see the full picture and understand by and by. I think Howard Thurman knew there was a strong call on his life that he could not escape. The more he learned, the more he wanted to learn. It was important to him to make a difference in the way African Americans saw academics, spiritual disciplines and social ethics. The more I read, it was evident the influence Morehouse had on Thurman to strive for perfection in all areas of his life.
In nowadays, hetero-patriarchy and anti-Black racism within our society is still existing, accepted and even expected. It marginalizes us and limits our ability to transform and generate social change. It is important that we work together to expand and sustain the legacy of Black contributions to the struggle for human rights.

I say this because according to Merriam Webster dictionary, advocacy means the act or process of supporting a cause or proposal (Merriam Webster).

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.
Immigrants should be allowed to work in America and should be treated with full respect and decency. Immigrants deserve recognition for everything they have done for our county.

Do you know what a hero is? A hero is someone who does something significant to change someone's life. My hero is Martin Luther King J.R. He has solves racism for black people and has made some of the most inspirational speeches of all time.
This brought him to organize the March on Washington where he delivered his famous "I Have A Dream" speech. Dr. King used his voice to prove others their perception of African American were wrong. He knew in order to get the attention of all racial backgrounds his voice would have to speak for the people as a whole not to seperate them by racial classes. Dr. King motivated people with his speeches and his initative to take actions against situations he wanted to see change from. His possessed qualities that leaders needed to have like; determination, responsibility, courage, and passion.

She evokes these historical events, not only to show the stark difference between the past and present with regards to educational opportunities for African Americans, but also demonstrate how the people who fought tirelessly so that they could gain an education did so because of they were aware of the value of education as it brings freedom and opportunity to those who have it. To bolster this assertion, Obama quotes Fredrick Douglas, “Freedom is Emancipation” (289) Obama details even further as she
