In After Redemption: Jim Crow and the Transformation of African American Religion in the Delta, John Giggie attempts to bring forth light on the historical African American religious transformation. He pens his purpose best in his introduction. It reads “ this is a book about the religious transformation in the lives of ex-slaves and their descendants living in the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta between the end of Reconstruction and the start of the Great Migration”(3). In this transformation, Giggie follows the period known to white Southerners as the “Redemption” period, but he proves that there is more than meets the eye about the movement if you were to scratch a little deeper beneath the surface. He investigates the how blacks were able to “[develop] a surprisingly rich and complex sacred culture during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century”, despite the re-emergence of white Supremacy through Democratic Party and Jim Crow laws (5).
When linguistics want to mention the AAVE they refer to it either as “Black English” or as African American English (AAE) ,or as AAVE that is more polite. Theoretically scholars who prefer to emphasize the nationality of the black Americans and correlate their speech with countries such as Nigeria, Jamaica etc. Nevertheless, the most common term to use is the Ebonics.

The Oxford definition of racism is Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior. We need to teach young children not say bad things about another person based on the color of their skin or not allow them to participate because of the color of their skin. How we can educate young people about racism is too created a program that talks about what the issue with racism has caused in the past and the ways it could be prevented in the future. Like the civil, or how African Americans were segregated from white people for a very long time. This caused dissension in America that we should not want future generations to go through.
Precious Knowledge presents the controversial issue of the integration of ethnic studies courses in schooling. Ethnic studies is the study of cultural, racial, ethnic, and gender differences in America. In this essay, I will argue Ethnic studies courses should belong in P-12 schooling, because the classes endorse ideals of America. In addition, people rely on the courses to learn critical thinking of the empowerment of identity. Although advocates for the abolishment of ethnic studies courses argue that the courses create a sense of contempt towards America through racism and are not remarkably significant, they do not fully comprehend the success from ethnic studies and that by taking away the classes, they only promote their fear of students disliking America.

There are many reasons why we should teach children about the Holocaust in school in 8th grade. One of the reasons is the valuable skills they will learn. Students will learn to put themselves in other people's shoes and understand the decisions they make along with learning not to use prejudice or racism. A quote from an article at AnneFrank.org talks about the information and skills students can learn from a lesson about Anne Frank or the Holocaust. Students learn “Where anti semitism can lead to”, where “discrimination can lead to”, and discussing the “choices and dilemmas people faced during the war and also that history is not so clear cut.”
The hierarchical structure that dominates pedagogy today ensures just that. Students are expected to adapt the “humility of a worm” (Campbell 472) in order to successfully develop and portray the correct self, which becomes completely dependent on the opinions of the professor. This is the way in which the self develops when emphasis is placed on judging instead of coaching. The students are judged in light of what Faigley described as the professor’s “unstated cultural definitions of the self” (Faigley

But through scholarship and leadership this implicit bias taught in schools can be eliminated. With scholarship comes the inherit love for learning, a passion to widen one’s horizons. This passion drives students, in this case, to learn world history, even if this particular story isn’t your own, or your ancestors. Scholarship is what drove me to take advanced history. Which vastly broadened my horizons, but also made me feel disgusted at the way history nearly every civilization to exist.
These five tasks, in their development stage provided different levels of difficulty. Surprisingly, I found writing the economics and business activity the easier of the tasks to write up, part of the reason for this is because I thought about an activity that would not only, assist me in learning about those concepts but that would also keep me interested. The rest of the activities developed quickly in my mind and I think that is largely because I have a ‘humanities’ brain and these activities reminded me of the tasks I participated in at school myself. The integrated history and geography activity proved to be the most difficult, I knew I wanted to have an activity directly related to the Cross Curricular Priorities, more specifically Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples but developing an activity surrounding this was almost like adding extra pressure. As a future teacher you want to improve the way history and societal views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders is being taught, to provide a better foundation of study for students.
In conclusion, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should remain in schools, the book is useful because it serves as a way to introduce race into a class discussion, the book can bring up “teachable moments” as described by David Bradley in the short clip of 60 Minutes. (Schneider). Censoring books by banning them restrains readers from learning and talking about topics that may be labeled as “controversial” or “explicit”. The “n-word” has a negative connotation due to the usage of the word in the past, it is often correlated with a disrespectful attitude, however this is controversial since David Bradley describes the complexity by comparing and saying “Rednecks can make jokes about rednecks”, this in other words says that one is not “allowed
This causes people to lose the true history of events that have happened in the past, which the past is a story of who we are today. For these reasons, educational systems should teach the true history of Columbus to our younger generation, so they are knowledgeable in all the events that took place both positive and negative. Teaching children the truth behind the voyages of Columbus and Europeans may impact them to understand why the world has multiple issues and disagreements.
I do not think the Confederate Flag represents a symbol of hate because it is part of the History of this great nation. This is only my personal opinion. However, this opinion could change by the end of my research. Nonetheless, it is a controversial topic. To understand a little more about this topic, I asked a few individuals in order to consider more opinions.
If the government tried to put the interests of citizens before their own, and not allow the citizens to get punish for what rights are obligated for them then they will see by putting the people first will benefit America as a whole. In my opinion I feel that the constitution is a petty factor for determining the democracy of a government and the rights of the people in that
