Left with nowhere to go in Latin America, Bolivar fled to Jamaica (Lynch 88). To establish a stable government, Bolivar believed, there was a need to obtain support from Britain. Bushnell, David reveals that in a bid to convince the British that it would serve them better if the Spanish colonies were free, Bolivar wrote a letter, Carta de Jamaica (Letter from Jamaica). In the letter, he highlighted factors that led to the failure of the Second Republic, pointed out reasons that supported Spanish colonies need to be free and called upon European countries to help free Latin American people from Spanish rule. The letter from Jamaica is one of the most important documents in Latin American history of the fight for independence.
Thomas Godlewski SPW 247 Dr. McCarthy- Gilmore October 6, 2015 Cortez: Self- Propulsion and Ego Upon the defeat of the Moors, Spain struggled to cultivate an identity.

The community seems to be held together by those seen as authoritative figures, such as Ivan Cooper, who plays a key role in the film, played by James Nesbitt. Cooper was one of the main organisers of the Civil Rights march in question, and believed that human rights could overcome the religious prejudice that had overtaken the North at the time, even though he was born into a Protestant family, in Londonderry, in 1944. His role in the march as peace-keeper undermines the unionist and British historical arguments that the Civil Rights movement could be classed as republicanism in disguise. It is interesting that Nesbitt was chosen to play him, as he himself was raised in a protestant community, similar to Ivan
As the president of US, Kennedy has an automatic ethos. However, due to his young age and his Roman Catholic belief, it is still crucial for him to enhance his ethos in the beginning of his presidency. Kennedy first refers to the shared roots between the audience and himself, “We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution”. The audience and the speaker are all the successors of the great funders of United States, who fought for liberty and independence. Kennedy then points out other visible shared experiences: “born in this century” represents he is with the younger generation.
Ponce de Leon is now known for his expedition to find the for the Fountain of Youth that is told to every sailors child.

Martin L. King Jr. took place. In fact, after the assassination of Dr. Martin L. King Jr, the first civil right bill was signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower since the Reconstruction. As a result, looking at the adolescent culture was an end result of the freedom of speech, the right to equality, the right to vote and many other things that has happen to this day” (MacLean, 2010). Because these changes took place during the adolescent culture of their era, Dr. King and Rosa Parks stood for the civil rights movement to ensure that this movement would continue and not be in vain. Yet, Alderman (2013), stated “Our pedagogical approach stresses the role of empathy, both as a factor in shaping the actual sociospatial development of the Movement, as well as a strategy for encouraging students to appreciate the everyday courage and sacrifice that animated so many of its

The Philippines has always had a rich musical history. It takes its roots from the indigenous tribes of the Philippines, who used it as a way to pass on epics and stories about gods and heroes, a way to celebrate good harvests, festivals, weddings and births, a way to mourn the dead, to court women, and a way to praise the gods. This music was then enriched by the Philippines’ western colonizers. The Spaniards imparted the zarzuela (called sarswela in the Philippines) and the rondalla, adding more Spanish touches to Filipino folk songs. The Americans, on the other hand, influenced the Philippine music scene by introducing pop and rock, eventually leading to the creation of “Pinoy pop”, which included a wide variety of forms like dance tunes, ballads, rock n’ roll, disco, jazz, and rap.
