had been treated poorly all his life because of his skin, he speaks out against the wrongdoing and racism. His purpose is to convince people that racism has bad effects on victims and to make the idea more prevalent. While he’s speaking, he brings up a few emotional situations like, “With this faith we will be able to work together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing we will be free one day.” MLK Jr.’s use of vocabulary conveys his emotion towards the topic and involves listeners using pathos. Because MLK Jr. knew racism was an issue in his time, he speaks out against it.
Huck Finn is still relevant today in the fact that it has a very important life lesson that everyone should know. On his adventure Huck learned not to follow the rest of society and to do what he thought was right. When Huck decided not to turn Jim in he was so torn about what to do. Of course the answer is obvious for most of us that no he should not turn Jim in however, Huck was raised in a society that pressured him to thinking that he should turn him in. Even while having been raised in this type of racist environment Huck realized he didn’t care what the “sivilized” people thought and he wanted to help Jim.
He taught us that everyone is equal and should be treated like that. The Constitution had said that all men were equal, but people, because of their skin, were being treated badly. King inspired people, to stand up for their rights and get the equality they rightfully deserved. Unlike others, he was peaceful, and didn’t want anyone to fight or spill blood over the cause. He tried to tell people how badly they were being treated, because of their differences.
After his loss, it was hard for many, but the nice thing you do see was that there was marching crowds and there were people of various races. Mr. King was a good impact on me and he made me realize many things in this crazy world of ours. He was just not the man who helped African-Americans he was also someone who enlightened everyone in America, someone who saw the peace when no one else could in our civilization. He was a great man and will be forever missed by many, and by any
Turner felt compelled to do this on his own free will. Not many slaves that have a chance of freedom would voluntarily return. When you carefully examine the magnitude of his actions, you understand his ability to command a crowd. How many prisoners do you think might escape, enjoy the taste of freedom, and voluntarily return to captivity, zero. Nat returned because he felt he had deserted those who believed in him and depended on his leadership .Nat
Atticus is the obviously the main character in the novel that shows courage and bravery by defending an African in court, even though he knows there is no possible way of winning the case he still must try to just so he can ‘uphold his sense of justice and self-respect’, because Atticus thoroughly believes that Tom Robinson is one-hundred percent innocent. Atticus stated: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It 's when you know you 're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.
Their communities began to have churches while slavery was going on. Their churches continued to pray and sing the same way, with soul that could be traced their ancestors who were chained and forced into labor by horrid men who beat them every chance given. Due to the absolute depression their lives were because of the gruesome life they led they turned to their Almighty God for help and hope in the darkest moments. Within these churches great leaders were born and raised who would fight even to their deaths until their people held the same rights as those given to the whites, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. being one of them. Churches during the Civil Rights Movement had so much to do with the how everything played out as the “spirit” of the church kept them going, at this point it was not even about religion, it was the hope that held so many hearts captive and faithful that one day things would change and equality would be shouted off of every rooftop and mountain side in the nation.
“‘As my sufferings mounted,’ Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote, ‘I soon realized that there were two ways that I could respond to my situation: either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force’” (Bromell, 2013, p.
On April 3rd 1968 Former civil rights leader Martin Luther King jr. employs the appeal of ethos, pathos and logos effectively in his speech “I’ve been to the mountaintop”. to persuade the people to stand up for equality. Martin Luther king jr. use of pathos strengthens his ability to make an emotional connection with the audience because they must have went through the similar experience. “Thirteen Hundred of God’s children are suffering, sometimes are going hungry,going through dark and dreary nights”.
This greatly impacted the bus companies economically because African-Americans were 75% of bus riders. This forced the bus companies to integrate and was eventually mandated by law. The bus boycott incident forced other cities in the south to rethink their laws regarding segregation. For example, on January 10, 1957 “bombs destroyed five black churches and the home of Reverend Robert S. Graetz, one of the few white Montgomerians who had publicly sided with the MIA(Montgomery Improvement Association)”(1).
On page 47, he explains that he is not a murderer because he gives his victims fair warning by “snapping the twig,” before he appears. Likewise, I liked Brent’s speech on page 61, which gives the audience an in-depth look at the way Brent sees the world, rather his disdain for society. Brent projects the fault onto his victims for their deaths due to their inability to detach themselves from material items and their overall lack of appreciation for the freedom they have to live and breath each second of each day to the fullest.
On April 4th, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is shot and killed at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. He was there in Memphis on the behalf of sanitation strikers as well as a peace march. There were many witnesses who account their version of the situation. One thing that is certain, they say it came from the some feet away. Police chased after car believed to be the culprit but it turned out not to be him.
Realizing in his struggles that mental strength can overcome physical abuse. What made Frederick such an amazing man was what he did with what others said about him and the things he did the brave steps he took, he didn 't take it personally and just stopped doing what he believed in just because other people didn 't like it or agree with it. The hate he received made him stronger in the end. If he had taken what people said to heart than he probably wouldn 't have accomplished all that he did. When Hugh Auld 's wife Sophia defied the ban of teaching slaves to read and write and decided to teach Frederick.
Critics argue that even with his reputation and political place (National Spokesperson) he did not demand for more equality for the African American population. Laws such as the Jim Crow and Black Codes prohibited blacks to vote or engage in political meetings. Overall, I think Washington did a great job of helping the African American community gain educational rights. He worked hard to give the blacks what they needed (education) and at the same time kept peace within the two races.
The city’s police leader, Eugene “Bull” Connor, was also notorious for his willingness to use brutality in combating radical demonstrators, union members, and blacks. The night of the bombing there man angry black protestors. Governor Wallace sent out hundreds of policeman and state troopers to break up the large angry crowd. 2 others were killed that night one by police and the other by racist white thugs. Upon learning of the bombing at the Church, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. sent a telegram to Alabama Governor George Wallace, a staunch and vocal segregationist, stating bluntly: 'The blood of our little children is on your hands."
