Decisions made in the 1850s ultimately decided the United States fate. From the election of 1856 to the Dred Scott case, the nation would become divided into two. The South was pro-slavery and supported the idea of slavery expanded into western territories, while the North opposed of the idea and was mainly against expanding slavery. Until the 1850s the nation barely balanced the slavery issue.

The Missouri compromise, the Dred Scott decision, and Bleeding Kansas were controversial issues surrounding the constitution that directly lead to the Civil War.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X both strived to influence equality amongst the Black and white society. These Civil rights leaders fought for what they stood for in many different ways. Such as, King influenced the movement through non-violence, whereas Malcolm X wanted to react with a violent approach. These two Civil rights leader’s differences were influenced by their experiences and contrasting backgrounds. Martin was raised surrounded by a middle class family and was provided with quality education, where he later grew up to be an Baptist minister which influenced his Christian belief in using nonviolent civil disobedience in his movement. Whereas, Malcolm X grew up in an underprivileged environment jumping from foster homes with
“You can’t separate peace from freedom, because nobody can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” These words came from the mouth of Malcolm X, but who was he? Some people call him deranged, others call him too radical. But truthfully, Malcolm X was one of the most influential African Americans in history.
For the 2016 presidential election I will be eighteen years old, so I plan to vote for Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders seems like a good candidate to be elected as the new president of the United States because he cares about us the people. A few reasons why Bernie Sanders would make an excellent president are because he plans to make college free, open work opportunities, and give everyone a reasonable work wage with those new jobs. However, the most important reason for me as a woman would be Bernie’s proposal to fight for women’s rights.
For many Americans, Trump is seen as the long-awaited saviour of the nation. Others see him as the man to start World War III.

Having the opportunity to discuss the impact of medical research performed on Henrietta Lacks’ cells with doctor George Guy would be an experience like no other. Through the use of Henrietta Lacks’s cells, George Guy created an industry that would fuel research throughout the scientific community. When Henrietta Lacks was admitted to the hospital for radiation treatments, doctors took samples of her cervical cancer cells. Henrietta was not informed that one of the two samples was sent to George Guy, a scientist researching the immortalization of human cells. Guy soon realized that these cells were able to grow outside of the human body, they even grew rapidly. This was the first time that Guy and his research team had come close to being able to grow human cells inside a dish, without them dying off. Guy continued to grow these cells in his lab, still not informing
Betsy DeVos is our new secretary of Education. That statement right there scares me. Prior to becoming the secretary of education, Betsy was known as a business woman, a philanthropist, a politician, and an activist. Nowhere in that sentence did I mention a teacher of public schools, and therefore Betsy DeVos is not fit for the title of secretary of education. She does not qualify because she has no experience in public education system, investment in low education systems, and no knowledge about the Individual with Disabilities Education Act.

In 1968, both Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated, leaving the United State in a state of uncertainty. With a nation in need, the Woodstock Music and Art fair arose in 1969, standing against the background of the past year (Evans and Kingbur 20). Max Yasgur, a dairy farmer who leased his farm to the Woodstock promoters, once said to the millions of fans at the festival, “The important thing that you've proven to the world is that... a half a million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music, and I God Bless You for it!” (Gerdes 4), and that is exactly what the crowd of more than 400,000 fans did. A great deal of people will argue that Woodstock was nothing
