Booth’s entire essay sought to affirm that Christianity is an African religion by showing how much its introduction into Africa was carried out by the black people who led the establishment of churches related to the Western controlling of distinguishable African character.

The spread of Christianity paved the way for many commercial speculators, and, in its original European form, denied people pride in their culture and ceremonies until Africans were able to fuse their own culture into it to truly make it their
Martin Luther King Jr. was an activist and a central leader in the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. King was born in 1929 and grew up in the city of Atlanta, Georgia, a city afflicted by racial segregation. He grew up in a family that encouraged him to respond to injustices and that later in life would always be there to support his choices.

Kiara Teunissen Goals and mission statements task Question 1: a) Source A can be considered as a mission statement because it is everything that Ghandi intends on doing. This is a good mission statement because he has stayed positive with all his goals that he has put in his mission statement that he wants to achieve and he also uses positive language. Source B can be considered a good mission statement because Ben Franklin has taken all of his values that he believes are important and he has added on to them to make them mean more to him and has turned his values into his mission statement.

These are emotional stability, extroversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. I found the reasons why Nelson Mandela definitely was a transformational leader. First, his ability to control and manage his emotions where others might be unable was astounding, to the point of embracing those that had imprisoned him. Also emerging from bitterness, he actively places forgiveness at the forefront of moving forward, both for himself and for South Africa.

During his presidency he managed to create democratic country and social harmony. Nelson Mandela became the symbol of the freedom fighter all around the world.
