Beating Hitler’s notion was a good thing because everyone was hoping for the best well obviously for their notion but when Jesse Owens won, their was weight lifted off their shoulders because if Hitler’s notion win he would hold it against all of these innocent people that don’t deserve to be treated the way Hitler treats Jewish. Jesse Owens left a legacy a legacy that will be known as not just a miracle, but it was a legacy that was heard around the WORLD! “ Despite segregation and a social hierarchy that was an impasse to both black opportunity and achievement, Owens created a lasting legacy that drastically impacted race relations.”(dc.etsu.edu). Jesse Owens was the fastest runner in the world for approximately 30 years, getting to shake Hitler’s hand was disapproving because Hitler was not quite thrilled when Jesse Owens won but that didn’t bother Jesse Owens, in fact he felt he didn’t need approval from the guy who tries killing every
Martin Luther King's approach to change is more for peace and optimism than Malcolm X’s approach; however, they both want to motivate blacks through their speeches to resist their own unfair treatment. Martin Luther King Jr. has the same conviction to the audience that even Black and White people can have brotherhoods, black and white can be friends，fight for freedom together and make the country better. King says, “With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day”(1). Martin Luther King’s speech is appealing to people not to use violence，and he urges everyone not to hate whites. Although white people have
Even if slavery had been gone for more then 100 years, African-Americans were still being treated unfair and were not completely free. In his first statement he said, “I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation”. Martin Luther King’s speeches and demonstrations would affect a change in the audience minds and hearts. He stood up against the injustice and inspired a nation into action with his words. Martin Luther King also used a lot of religious references in his speech for example from the Bible he used quotes like “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” & Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain….”.
George C. Wallace and Martin Luther King Jr. both had very strong viewpoints. Both presented a speech on the Civil Rights Movement that contained Kairos, ethos, pathos, and logos to win over their audience Wallace gave his “Segregation today…” speech in 1963, where he was pro-segregation. At this time it is believed that Wallace had changed his beliefs so that people would favor him. In 1962, Wallace runs for Governor, and while doing so, states that he is pro-segregation which actually gets him a lot of fame. Not only
Martin Luther King’s Universal Influence As Martin Luther King once said, “an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity” (King, Coretta 17). All his life, King has been trying to make this world a better place. He is known mostly for his work in the Civil Rights, but he has been of influence on a far wider scope. He opposed “racism, imperialism, poverty, and political disfranchisement in increasingly radical terms” (Jackson 1). He fought for international human rights and wanted economic rights to income, housing and security for everyone.
The next speech is Kings Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. While giving his speech King admitted that he questioned why the civil rights movement had received the award when it had not yet won the peace aspect of the award. Overall the speech was very inspiring with king saying, “I accept the Nobel Prize for Peace at a moment when 22 million Negroes of the United States of America are engaged in a creative battle to end the long night of racial injustice. I accept this award on behalf of a civil rights movement which is moving with determination and a majestic scorn for risk and danger to establish a reign of freedom and a rule of justice. "(USA today).
A man that has made a mark as deep as the freedom riders did was Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King was often regarded as one of the most prominent figures and also the face in the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. King advocated against discrimination and he gave various speeches all over the nation about the moral crime of racism. One important speech that Dr. King has given, but is often forgotten, is the one when he spoke at Jonathan Dayton Regional High School. With the help of Rabbi Dresner, Dr. King was able to speak at Jonathan Dayton High School, despite the large and open resistance from the community.
If one man can do that, why can’t everybody? I hope that my children and their children after that will live in the utopia where all men have Garrison’s ideals. I believe the part of his speech that struck me the most was his determination to deflect all forms of challenges against his ideals, showing everyone that his positions were tenable. He went to great lengths, lengths that one could even deem as dangerous, to prove to us that he planned to do everything he was capable of doing to stop our suffering. In
Edward Mitchell 10/22/2016 English 10 Essay Unit 1 Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson played a large role in motivating the fight toward freedom in the weeks leading up to the Revolutionary War and immediately following it.

While it sounds like a simple goal, many people fail to make themselves happy. My definition of happiness is fairly simple, I want to contribute to something I am passionate about and have a family I love. I want to have the same passion for my career that Mandela had “to replace Apartheid with…non-racial democracy” which was so great that he dedicated his entire life to (Carlin 15). Mandela was so passionate that he endured “the solitude and toughness and quiet routine of prison; [and] the grinding exercise regimen to which he submitted himself behind bars” all “to kill apartheid” (Carlin 17). It is Mandela’s persistence and willingness to suffer because of his passion that I truly admire.
