The first of these was held in 1800 by Gabriel Porter. He united many slaves and armed them all, however, a storm dispersed the plan. Two of the slaves told their owners, who rounded the rebels and executed them, so this wasn’t successful. In 1822, a man
Instead of just explaining why slavery is morally wrong Douglass uses syntax to add an extra effect and attract attention to his claim. The speech is a mockery to Frederick Douglass and his fellow brothers and sisters who were victims to slavery. “FELLOW CITIZENS, above your nation, Tumultuous joy,I hear the mournful wails of millions!- whose chains, heavy and grievous yesterday, are rendered more intolerable by the jubilee shouts that reach them”(5) The injustice of slaves hasn’t been resolved and while many people wail with joy other battle their way through each day. They have been sold countless of times yet no one does anything. Abolitionist can only do so much to give them the life that slaves deserve.
Claudette Colvin was the first to refuse to give up her seat when she was 15, but it turns out she was pregnant so she had a legit reason for not giving up her seat. Rosa Parks was the one that created lots of controversy. Coming home from a long day at work she took a seat in a white section. When a white man asked her to get up, she would not. Therefore, Rosa was arrested.
Over the past 140 years, there is no other race that has endured as much physical, mental and emotional suffrage like African Americans. African Americans relied on various strategies of resistance to aid them into transition of freedom as well as overcoming the oppression during the Jim Crow era. The term “slave resistance” refers to enslaved peoples taking up arms against their masters in rebellious acts of violence. Regardless of how many harsh laws were passed to control them, enslaved Africans still rebelled against their masters.

Garrison founded a couple organizations to expand the movement, but his efforts were futile. Southern congressmen issued what was called “the gag rule”, which prohibited discussion of abolitionist petitions. Thankfully, most of the nation resented the gag rule, as they recognized that it threatened free speech. It wasn’t until 1840 that the first anti-slavery political party, the Liberty Party, was formed. For the majority of abolitionists, this new party opened a big window for action.
These were part “separate but equal” doctrine. Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was born on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama. She refused to surrender her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama; and this spurred a city-wide boycott. This prompted the city of Montgomery to lift the law requiring segregation on public buses and other public facilities. Rosa’s mother taught her to read at a young age.
The Enslaved blacks used non-violent schemes as an oppression of vengeance towards their slave masters for the torturing and abuse they dwelled upon the Enslaved blacks over the two hundred year slavery period. Non-violent modes of rebellion showed that the Enslaved blacks finally believed in acts of bravery. This act of bravery would have allowed other slaves to stand up for their right to freedom, even if the Enslaved blacks were striving towards a crisis one’s body can never imagine
She is a true hero and what she did is something very brave and if it wasn 't for her to refuse to move to the back of the bus then the bus boycott would of took longer to start and the segregation problems would of lasted longer. “To this day, I am not an absolute supporter of nonviolence in all situations. But I strongly believe that the civil-rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s could never have so successful without Dr.King and his firm belief in nonviolence.” pg
Many colored people hated the fact of being separated but only a few took a stand and did something about it. Three greatly known people are Rosa parks, Martin Luther King Jr., and Jimmie Lee Jackson. Rosa Parks was a civil rights activist. She was born on February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her refusal to give up a seat to a white man on a bus caused Rosa to be thrown in jail.
Well found out that White mob would lynched family members or friends if they could not find the suspect. This brother of the suspect is innocent and did not rape White women, however, he was hung because of the hatred White men hold toward his brother. This is not about punishing crime, but to control or oppress them to social, economical in the society. Wells also found that white were rarely lynched even though they committed a crime. She found out that lynching become an entertainment for people in the South.
Even if local militia leaders objected. After the Revolutionary war, many Americans realized that enslaving people did not fit in with the new ideals of liberty and equality. Even before the colonies fought a war for independence which nobody thought they had a chance of winning. Opposition to slavery had been growing. In its aftermath many Northern states took measures to outlaw
Despite being afraid of what happened, he freed himself, his family and other slaves from captivity aboard a Confederate slave ship that was in transit overseas. After this, during and after the Civil War, he became a politician and a ship captain. He showed how even in a nightmare situation, you can still overcome. The lady known as Claudette Colvin was also a person who decided to go against the rules of bus transit for African Americans, not Rosa Parks. In Montgomery, she was only 15 years old when she refused to give up her seat on a bus and was carried away by 2 police officers and taken to an adult prison to be booked.
Henry Cabot Lodge discussed his opposed opinion on the matter of the League of Nations, “I have always loved one flag and I cannot share that devotion with a mongrel banner created for a League” (Doc H). His opposition only proves that the world is not ready for a change of such magnitude, one which could have helped the situation African Americans were in. However all it ended in was a collapse of one dream that was recreated decades later. A map indicating the Woman suffrage in 1912 shows that most eastern states have achieved it, yet these are only white woman (Doc F). They would not even consider this for African American women because segregation was too prevalent and even though they saw some promise for socially advancing it was overcome with everything going back to the way it was after the war.
The Declaration of Independence said that, “All men are created equal”, but the slaves were not free. They shaped the Civil War by having the Emancipation Proclamation, the fourteenth amendment, and the fifteenth amendment. The consequences would be that at first the newly freed slaves wouldn’t have a place to go, because they never had no money and they didn’t have all their rights yet. The Emancipation Proclamation helped the slaves because they should be free. The Emancipation never really freed any
