“ More “liberal” in matters of race than most American cities (although, of course, racism was rampant), New York had an extraordinarily diverse and decentered black social world in which no one group could monopolize cultural authority, making it a particularly fertile place for cultural experimentation” (Harlem Renaissance). Over all, The Harlem Renaissance was seen as a time for African Americans to escape the hate that they felt, and were given freedom to express how they felt. Some became famous writers like; Langston Hughes, others became famous singers, and musicians like; Louis Armstrong, this time period was very important to African American
had the unique skill to merge genre’s together and form something that was entirely different and new for the generation, and which led to other generations to merge other genres. Presley’s inspiration of genres was greatly impacted by the African American culture; however, brought his country-side to his music, which is what gave his music his own creative sound. He was the first artist to basically merge black and white music together, and widening his fan base. Elvis Presley not only changed the way entertainers performed, he also changed the way it was marketed. Teenage fans were soon to be seen as important consumers of goods, who bought products like records, tickets to concerts, and movies.

This new genre of music came from a combination between African American Blues and Gospel. As many African Americans migrated around America, during the Great Migration, the rhythm of their music attracted the young teens, but due to segregation, these songs never got much air time and many middle class White Americans thought the music was tasteless. Due to the lack of air time, many White Americans remade the songs but that caused many people to stop tuning in and listening to that particular station because it just didn’t sound like the same song they enjoyed. Many people set out to find a White American that could capture that African American tune. A memphis producer named Sam Phillips finally found the answer to those problems through Elvis Presley.
Malcom X was trying to convey that everyone else was not alone, and with unity things could possibly change in the future. After hearing this speech I immediately pinned it as my favorite scene of the movie. The speaker expresses that he will stand for nothing but a black man, which he was born because it would be wrong to call his self an American when blacks are treated differently than whites. “After America has long passed; there will still be black people.” Repetition of important things were used in this speech to help emphasize these things to the
One of our most famous, or infamous, wars was centered around the enslavement of a whole race because white people in the South needed cheap labor and saw themselves as racially superior. However, after the war I have to admit that the Government at least tried with the Reconstruction Amendments. The 15th amendment gave the right to vote to African-American males which was a huge step in the right direction for change. This new amendment definitely benefited the black community considering there was a rise of African-American officeholders during the Reconstruction Era (Foner,
Additionally, it had a revitalizing influence for African Americans to develop race pride; giving such a prestige to their work affected African Americans in a manner of desiring to reconnect with their unwanted African heritage. By incorporating Jazz and Blues to the movement, the Harlem Renaissance attracted the fascination of white people, mixing up their cultures and societies, providing opportunities for interracial couples to share more than dances, and although at some point it contributed to an evident decrease of racist outlooks
For many years, racial freedom has been developing in order to incorporate equal rights for everyone. Other races besides white people have been recognized nowadays unlike years before. They now obtain new roles in the community that weren't attainable for them during past times. Even though it hasn't improved as much as we wanted it to, racial discrimination has gone a long way and has progressed to diminish racism. Reasons why racial freedom has improved over the years are so that colored people can encounter better jobs and education opportunities, are given more respect and obtain equal rights unlike previous times.

According to the text, some historians thought the south had won because of the many obstacles they had overcome. I agree with many of the historians because if it wasn’t for the amending of the laws and the Constitution, African Americans would still be held in bondage. Due to this change there were several major victories for African Americans that guaranteed them recognition as citizens and equality (Foner 442). The amending of these laws opened many doors that African Americans never thought was possible. First, the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 freed all slaves in states fighting the Union and allowed blacks to enlist in the Union Army (Dautrich and Yalof 115).
Black History Month started in 1915 and was made to appreciate colored people and has carried on for centuries and is still around. The good and the bad in the declaration.The good is the African-Americans won at the declaration at court.

The purpose of the Underground Railroad was to free slaves from the ownership of slave owners, and did just that. Over 100,000 thousand slaves were freed from slave owners, and they managed to live their own lives. While slaves escaping did bring about anti-black sentiment from the Southern States most clearly seen in the Fugitive Slave Act, it brought support for abolition because white people could see that all the slaves were just as human as the rest of them. This may not have changed their beliefs of inferiority, but it did change their beliefs that African Americans deserved such cruel treatment. After the awareness of the slaves’ capabilities and the living in communities with slaves, white people in the North that still supported slavery changed their stance after seeing first hand that black people, not just the few free blacks, were similar to everyone else.
