In this essay I will be discussing how the Black Panthers were trying to help the African American community. During the Civil Rights Movement Martin Luther King Jr had organised many nonviolent protest to help the African American community gain equal rights and to end segregation in the South. These nonviolent protests were mainly set in the South and mainly worked for the Southern community. It wasn’t effective in the North side which had the Ghettos which consisted of the African American community. During this time the Black people were treated in a horrible manner by the Police there were lots of reports of the police attacking the African American people who were not armed or did nothing wrong.
Ethnic Notions: Divided From The Start The film 'Ethnic Notions ' illustrates various ways in which African Americans were impersonated during the 19th and 20th centuries. It follows and shows the development of the rooted stereotypes which have generated bias towards African Americans. If a film of this kind had such an affectionate influence on me, it is no surprise people adopted these ideas back then. The use of new and popular media practices in those days was more than adequate in selling the black inferiority to the general public.
Blacks and Hispanics in the Workplace: The Racial Pay Gap In this paper, we plan to focus specifically on the presence of Latino/Hispanic and Black minority groups in the workforce, and the differential treatment they have received in the past or are presently receiving. Minorities, such as Hispanics and Black have played important roles in the nation's workforce throughout history. Despite their contributions, they have almost always received differential treatment. Throughout this paper, we seek to explore the treatment of these minorities, past and present, identify some of the causes of this unequal treatment and also help define their roles in the workforce.

African Americans received no respect for decades and decades. No matter if you were old or young, man or a woman. You received no respect. Martin Luther King Jr. was an inspirational speaker sticking up for what was right. While dealing with the same disrespect all Negroes were receiving.
Over the course of the American history, black people were oppressed and treated unfairly. A few ways that society treated black people is by segregating them from white people, beating them up, and taking advantage of them. As a consequence, African Americans grew up in an environment were limited in their abilities, had hatred towards the white, and had a constant judgment from white people. These factors contributed towards the way society viewed African Americans, flawed, uneducated, and poor. Yet, a notable person who overcame these obstacles and made the most out of his experiences was Malcolm X. He made a dramatic change not only in American history but in African American rights.
Dr. Elizabeth Varon’s lecture portrayed the complex legacy of Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9th, 1865 in the context of what it symbolized for the South, the North, and African Americans, what it’s practical implications were, and how it differs from our modern rendering of the event into folklore. Depending on their allegiance to the Union or to the Confederacy, people perceived the events that transpired at Appomattox very differently. Dr. Varon first addresses Lee and the South’s view of Appomattox a restoration of peace, with no obligations for the South to repent or change their ways. It was a noble defeat in the eyes of the Confederates in which Lee “had not stooped his proud head one
This fall semester was devoted to spending time at the Faithful Fools Street Ministry, a non-profit organization dedicated to understanding and serving the impoverished constituents of the San Francisco Tenderloin.

As poverty and homelessness are consistent across the globe, as well as the ways in which the privileged deal with it, the Faithful Fools Street Ministry uses an alternate approach to social justice – one that challenges individuals to think differently about the ways in which disadvantaged communities are “served”; specifically, whether pre-existing
Whereas other historians keep secret their accounts of black involvement in the Civil War, Wilson states as a result of their ﬁghting alongside white soldiers a new attitude developed towards the blacks. Numerous northern officers had grown up knowing just the African Americans as depicted on the stage smiling, huge mouthed, and adoring watermelons and eating fried chicken. However, what they did find were genuine humans, attempting to be in control of their future. Wilson depicts a Wisconsin fighter 's sentiments by saying, "The black folks are awful good, poor miserable things that they are. The boys talk to them fearful and treat them most any way and yet they can 't talk two minutes but tears come to their eyes and they throw their arms
Throughout American history, African Americans have been treated as unequal to whites and were not given the same rights. People suffered through this belief for a long, difficult time. During the twentieth century, African Americans realized living in a segregated society was unjust and finally decided to make a change. Several individuals rose to power to speak out against segregation and give a voice to those unheard. African Americans unified and fought to create a future in which they were equal.
The Civil Rights movement was a very big part of the 1950s and 1960s, the civil rights movement was not taken very seriously and had a lot of controversy between different beliefs. The only way to explain the civil rights movement in more detail is to explain the different aspects that actually shaped the civil rights movement.

Selma was an organization to help black people gain equality and give them voting rights. This organization helped raise awareness of the difficulty faced by black voters in the south and the need for a voting rights.
