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. The purpose of the speech was to revolutionize the idea that racism is okay and make people’s mind change.
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.
While Mr. King was in Memphis for that trip in 1968, a man shot him on a balcony outside of his motel room. 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’s word, his bond and what people thought of him, meant more than his individual freedom.
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. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”, he is still brave enough to stand up in front of the racist community and try to plead a black man innocent even though he, himself is a white man. Scout shows bravery throughout the text by always not being afraid to fight boys for example Walter Cunningham Jr. and Francis.
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.
However, unlike the likes of other black revolutionaries of the time, such as Malcolm X, MLK was an advocate of peaceful protests even as the white people broke out with violence towards the African American community with every step they took in the war for equality. “‘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 statement means that people are struggling because there is no equality and they don't have freedom.
After Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat to a white man, many African-Americans began to walk to work instead of taking buses. 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).
