This was the case because for an incredibly long amount of time blacks were made the inferior race, white men handicapped their growth and intelligence, making them simply into a labor force that couldn’t even think for themselves. African Americans are free now, but they are still fighting to become equals with the whites in society. The white men are backlashing the African Americans, trying to keep them under the whites, especially since they are the majority population in the south, the whites are fearful of the result in African American
For countless years, there has been deliberate bigotry against people of color all around the world. However, today in America the social prejudice against the African American race has become almost entirely a thing of the past. Researchers argue that the discrimination people of color face has lessened over time and the barriers between whites and blacks have weakened.

Education is an essential part in any person’s life no matter their race and every person should be able to receive the same opportunities.

We all gathered and sat around the dinner table. The hot soup sat in the middle of the table steaming hot with its distinct scent that I get to smell every year. While pouring me a bowl of soup my dad reminded me why on New Year’s Day we eat Soup Joumou. “Remember,” he said, “Haiti became a free country on January 1st, 1804, before that, while blacks and slaves worked hard over a hot stove to prepare Soup Joumou for their masters, they were not allowed to drink this soup in Haiti. It was a delicacy, it was reserved for the privileged French slave masters.
Race mattered because uneducated people were thought to be blacks, education was easily given to the black as it was for the poor whites. However race didn’t matter in the same aspect because education was taught, black or white you were not born with elite knowledge. The knowledge was learned, sadly whites thought just because they were white there should be elite and wealthy; which the case
After a fifty mile fight, Selma to Montgomery, African Americans finally reached the finish line, and voting was achievable for all. It was not easy though. After 250 years of slavery the civil war made everyone free. The reconstruction followed, in efforts to make things equal for everyone, but Plessy v. Ferguson was a setback. It started the “separate but equal” concept, and life was segregated for 60 years.
African Americans face a struggle with racism which has been present in our country before the Civil War began in 1861. America still faces racism today however, around the 1920’s the daily life of an African American slowly began to improve. Thus, this time period was known by many, as the “Negro Fad” (O’Neill). The quality of life and freedom of African Americans that lived in the United States was constantly evolving and never completely considered ‘equal’. From being enslaved, to fighting for their freedom, African Americans were greatly changing the status quo and beginning to make their mark in the United States.
This made her the highest paid black entertainer at that time, leading her own shows. However, in the background she struggled with alcoholism and also was going through an abusive relationship with her husband. Even that did not tear her apart, she was still on the Columbia’s A-series for most of that year. That made the label decide to establish the ‘race-records’ series with Bessie the star of them. The series first issued Bessie’s ‘Cemetery Blues’.
Blacks had just moved North from the South and had gotten different jobs in place of white men when they were at war, such as factory workers. Unfortunately, blacks were still mistreated at the beginning of the Harlem Renaissance, but most of them were soon recognized as talented artists. African Americans had artistic and social freedom from the movement, they truly believed they had the potential, and they did. The Harlem Renaissance was to help blacks seek and get better lives than they used to have, and be proud of themselves and their accomplishments. Blacks were able to express themselves, with where they originally came from through art.

Although “Warriors Don’t Cry” and “Remember the Titans” have many differences, they also have many similarities too. Besides the fact that both the movie and book focused on the struggles black people had integrating, both show how there are not any big differences between whites and blacks. In “Warriors Don’t Cry” Melba outscored some of her white classmates in tests, proving that she is just as good or better than the other white students. In “Remember the Titans”, the more successful and starting quarterback was black. Also the defensive coordinator (who was white) benched a white player in order to play a black player because he was better.

Robin Roberts Our country has depended on media to know about news in the United States and all over the world for a great amount of time now.

It was also a time when African Americans were not treated as equal citizens. Racism in our nation still greatly existed. Despite the negative times, Robin Roberts became the first African American ESPN Sportscaster.
You can dine for a light lunch or eat until your heart’s content with appetizers, a meal, soup or salad and delicious desserts.

The famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits that hit the menu in 1992 were one of the greatest creations in human history. It’s tempting to have an entire meal of biscuits, but you need to save room for the entree.
Black history month is a yearly commemoration dedicated to the accomplishments made by African Americans. As an African American female, I am persistently faced with discrimination, stereotyping and sexism. I am aware that the racism and discrimination we face today is not nearly as atrocious as what my ancestors experienced, but it is still exceedingly difficult being black in America. I give thanks to the great deal of African Americans before my time who fought for our freedom. There are countless blacks who inspire and motivate me everyday.
