Erving Goffman introduced this concept into the world of sociology for the first time in his book published in 1959 entitled 'The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life. ' He believed that there is no real true self and everyone acts within these two bands. He further believed that humans find the need to establish a social identity and this method is how they go about it, subconsciously. People don 't necessarily live their lives with the aim of operating in front and back stage, it happens naturally.

Everyone says it. Your mom, your teachers, even your friends. Everyone encourages you to just be yourself, but if you think about how individuals are shunned, does anyone actually want you to be different?

The loss of jobs arising from automation, urban disinvestment, capital flight, and changing population patterns was especially devastating for black workers—and the speakers at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom emphasized the point. For example, Randolph denounced “profits geared to automation” that “destroy the jobs of millions of workers,” and called for measures to address unemployment, raise the minimum wage, and increase federal aid to education. People didn’t have enough money to eat food and afford family before the march.
