Some slaves were scared of leaving slavery because that was all they knew. Slaves if they escaped would have troubles finding jobs and a safe place for their family. In like manner, all slaves wanted was to be able to have their own job that they could be paid for and their own house just like any other American citizen. “The Underground Railroad was established to aid enslaved people in their escape to freedom” (Hudson 1). Slaves had no other option than to try to run away from their plantation and hopefully run into someone working for the Underground Railroad to assist them in their escape.
They do all put in work to pay for her schooling though. School was difficult for black students as they were not always accepted in all schools. “In September 1957 Arkansas Democratic Governor Orval E. Faubus became the national symbol of racial segregation when he used Arkansas National Guardsmen to block the enrollment of nine black students who had been ordered by a federal judge to desegregate Little Rock 's Central High School¨(Faubus). The Whites were definitely trying to keep the blacks from getting the proper education to be successful this is why her family is sceptical about her become a doctor. The family is somewhat supportive of Beneatha’s dream in the sense that they pay for her schooling.
African Americans did not get civil rights nor were they considered American citizens even after the Civil War. Equality for African Americans did not get put into place after the Civil War because of Lincoln’s assassination, nobody after him would necessarily support civil rights because they either didn’t support it, or they didn’t want to show they supported it because they would have had a chance of losing office. The South also depended heavily on slave trade; most southerners didn’t just give up their slaves they had already “owned”. The Ku Klux Klan Act was an act
In general, the students of the Greensboro sit-in both continued and started their own form of a Civil Rights Movement. Brown v. Board of Education was the start of contemplation of segregation in schools. Oliver Brown wanted his daughter to go to school by where they lived, but she was not allowed to because she was of African American docent. Each state during this time period stated that whites would be separate to African Americans . Brown argued that this broke the 14th amendment (Equal Rights), but was overruled in court when the jury decided as long as students learned the same thing and classroom settings were equal than no laws were broken.
And not only blacks were segregated, but Mexicans and Chinese people. With Jim crows around from 1877 to the 1950s, people of color could not play games, eat with, or even go to school with white people. A black man could not even have a nurse that was white. But many movements changed these rules. For example Brown vs. Board of Education let people of color go to school with whites, which was a big step toward “equality”.

Board of Education consisted of 5 different cases with a similar premise, but the well-known story of behind the groundbreaking event began in Topeka, Kansas with a man named Oliver Brown. Due to the segregation laws in Kansas at the time, his third-grade daughter, Linda, could not attend a nearby white school and had to trek a mile to a bus stop to attend a black school that was much further away. Consequently, Oliver Brown attempted to enroll his daughter in a local school for whites in 1950 with several other black families. As expected, they were turned down. However, under the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or the NAACP, Brown, and other black families filed a lawsuit against the board of education of
Then he jumps into a description of his mother, the only family member whom he knows. However, this portrayal is scant because Douglass and his mother are “separated when [he is] but an infant—before [he knows] her as [his] mother”, which “is a common custom” (Douglass 395). Although he defines it as common, this is not commonplace amongst his readers, the white majority, but the slave world. While an enslaved mother loses her child almost immediately after giving birth, the white slaveholding parents nurture their own children and watch them grow up with love and support. The irony in this situation is that these people do not realize that they are tearing families apart all the while making sure that their family stays together.
She was a girl that walked a mile to school every day even thought there was Sumner elementary (white school) nearest to her home like seven blocks away but it was only for white students. Linda 's father, Oliver Brown, tried to enroll her in the white elementary school, but the principal of the school refused because his child is black (Watts and Roberson, Pg. 218). Brown decided to take the problem to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People willing to help the Brown family and filed their case happened in February 28, 1951.
That made him think that they would want a dictator to restore order, making democracy dead. To make people think he was a, somewhat, abolitionist. Lyncoya, his adopted son, was one of the many captured children from Tallahatchie. Jackson wanted Lyncoya to get educated at West Point but he died of tuberculosis at age 14 in 1827. though he may have cared for him, Andre didn’t seem to care for any other slaves. Between 1794 and 1820 he owned just about 40 slaves.
