“Slavery by Another Name” is a documentary that proves that Black people’s suffering because of slavery was never ended with the Emancipation Proclamation, which was issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863. The Proclamation ordered to free all the slaves. After 1865, many African-Americans faced the brutal situation in which they were forced to do hard labor work. They tortured from both North and South. At that time, they were just free in documents, but not in real life.
The next paragraph is where he uses logical appeal more like common sense but frederick douglass says that “ this fourth of july is yours, not mine” saying that the fourth was not made for him but for the white people because they are treated different from the whites and they are not free like them even tho all people should be free because that 's why we have the fourth of july to celebrate the independence and freedom of america not the free and the enslaved of people and this really has an impact on the audience because it makes them wonder why did we have slaves why did we not free everyone like what if we were in that position that they are in during this time like would we have done the same thing as frederic or say what they wanted to hear a big lie because blacks are not part of the celebration your just there for them when really it 's a big big disappointment to the country and the people
When the Emancipation Proclamation was released, all the slaves were freed leaving the white men to do the work for themselves (Holzer). This changed the course of the war because the white men were no longer free to fight in the war because they had to do their own work (Holzer). This meant that the Southern army no longer had many soldiers. It also meant that the North now had many more soldiers, who were also former slaves (Holzer). In addition, the Emancipation Proclamation led to the equality of all blacks.
Without his experiences as an escaped slave Frederick Douglass wouldn’t have been able to uses his experiences to help the persuade the audience of his speech as effectively as he did, and with his experiences it caused him to evoke more emotion as well. In addition, when frederick Douglass appealed to the logical side of why slavery needs to end the reasoning that he provided was very compelling. When slavery was abolished in 1865 Frederick Douglass was able to experience some of the freedom he fought for until he died in 1895, so his hard work was not for nothing, but people would continue to fight for equality for years to
The United States of America is, and continues to be, associated in many people’s minds with freedom. A handful of individuals between 1400-1800 CE can be held accountable for this conceptualization of American Freedom. Some men such as Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson aided or attempted to aid the African slaves imported to the British colonies during the 18th century in there fight for freedom. Meanwhile a large portion of the white population in the colonies was being denied basic civil liberties and omitting John and Abigail Adams no one seemed to care. One man in this time appears to have no concern for the freedoms of any group of people, including his subjects.
The importance behind Douglass’ speech is that he is showing us that we should also think about others. The caucasian men and women already had their freedom way before the Declaration of Independence was signed, while their celebrations of freedom were occurring, hundreds of thousands of slaves were still praying and wishing for
After Douglass published his Autobiography ‘Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave’ he had to escape to Great Britain, leaving his family behind in fear of being recaptured until 1847 when he became a free man with help from British supporters (Bodden 16-17). If he wouldn’t have sailed to Britain and gained support from British followers he would have risked being captured by white men and put back into slavery, so he had to leave everything behind. Despite all of this his sacrifice helped us learn more about slavery and what they went through. Frederick Douglass worked hard to free slaves, and even endangered himself a few times in the process.
I am not ashamed of my grandparents for having been slaves. I am only ashamed of myself for having at one time been ashamed. About eighty-five years ago, they were told that they were free, united with others of our country in everything pertaining to the common good, and, in everything social, separate from the fingers of the hand. And they believed it. They exulted in it.
Martin Luther King Jr. wanted to get his point through in his speech about how cruely colored skins were mistreated and didn’t have rights like everyone else did. John Locke made the three most important rights anyone could have, life liberty and pursuit of happiness. None of these colored men had any of those rights. I believe blacks were treated very poorly. I also believe that all those thousands of blacks around the world should have never been treated the way they were.
African-Americans have been held back and fought since they came to America almost 400 years ago as slaves. But they have never given up on that dream that they will one day be equal and walk, work, get paid, etc. right beside the white man. It’s talking about how we were never handed anything. We escaped England to make this country a reality.
Frederick Douglass During the year of 1852, Frederick Douglass came forth and denounced the evil of the Fourth of July. The Fourth of July was when the colonies won the British in the American Revolutionary War. Douglass didn’t agree to the celebration of the Fourth of July. In his point of view, he saw it as a day of hypocrisy. Frederick, a born slave, knew the truth behind the Fourth of July known as a day of freedom.
In the speech for fourth of July celebrations invited by Rochester, the indignant Frederick Douglass strongly criticizes the hypocrisy of the celebrations of the freedom and independence in his nation. He pointedly questions all present people the meaning of celebrations of Fourth July to the black people, wrathfully recounts the tragedies that happen on black people in detail and vehemently points out that the meaningless propriety of the nation should be destroyed. Throughout his speech, he demonstrates the deep crime and ugliness that most Americans made and eagerly calls the equality and peace to all black people. In the third paragraph, after using a mass of rhetorical question in the first two paragraphs, Frederick Douglass employs metaphor and contrast to emphasize the satire of this celebrations to black people.
One of the people who changed the world was Frederick Douglass. Frederick Douglass was born into slavery when he was young. Unlike other slaves Frederick Douglass know how to read. 1838 Frederick escaped slavery and stayed in Massachusetts with his wife then Douglass became an abolitionist.
The speech from What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July? was presented by Frederick Douglass and was addressed to the Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society on July 5th of 1852 in Rochester, New York. Frederick Douglass was a man who was born into slavery in Maryland but, eventually he escaped to Massachusetts at the age of twenty one. The goals of his speeches were for the United States to have equality and the abolishment of slavery among all of it’s people. His goal of equality in current time have not been fully achieved by the United States as a whole.
Frederick Douglass’ Goals Throughout the history of the United States the civil war has divided the country and brought racism. The nation was badly wounded emotionally and socially after the civil war. Before the civil war had begun, many people had owned slaves and many wanted to abolish slavery. Frederick Douglass helped with the abolishment of slavery by creating a speech on July 5, 1852 named, from What to the Slave is the Fourth of July.
