Policies such as equal pay, equal work, and protection of the reproductive rights of women. With the use of various rhetorical strategies, he is able to express his perspective on feminism through his personal experiences and develop a strong argument.

A Raisin in The Sun exemplifies how white racism has forced thousands of families to give up their culture and identity in hopes to progress in a society set against them. Though the play highlights the negativity the Younger’s experienced, it shows how perseverance and determination can lead to success. This proves that freedom does exist. In America today African Americans have found ways to gain their freedom, they are able to succeed as themselves, the ultimate sense of

For them to do this, they had to fight in many cases. Another goal they accomplished was they changed how the United States felt about African Americans. A quote that talks about 6 main changes they have done to civil rights is, “The NAACP’s initiatives for the 21st century can best be summarized by its six ‘Game Changers’: economic sustainability, education, health, public safety and criminal justice, voting rights and political representation, and expanding youth and young adult engagement” (NAACP). The quote shows what progress the group has made after starting in 1909. Another event that changed civil rights is that they kept African Americans from illegal drugs.
With the help of the NAACP american culture wouldn’t be in the condition it is now. African Americans are looked at differently and now times have changed. Some question why desegregation in schools and public areas was so important, and how did it become so successful. Some people also wonder why the NAACP had such an effect on society today. But you can’t forget the NAACP was not always this perfect group the you always hear about, they also faced a lot of negativity and also influenced in negative ways you would want to know.
My other opinion is that maybe she should think about running for president because I think she would be very effective and make an even bigger impact on other African American girls to fight for more equality. In conclusion, Ruby Bridges was a very powerful women and hopefully she will continue to change lives of others. Thanks for reading this
They were also used in order to make the ability to vote more restrictive and difficult to achieve. In order for the freedmen to have the ability to vote many, many obstacles would have to be overcome, such as having to pay a steep poll tax and pass extremely difficult tests, such as literacy tests. Even though the “Jim Crow” style of segregation disfranchised the majority of the freedmen, the South was still able to have it imposed. The reason for the “Jim Crow” laws being able to be enforced upon the society in the South was due to the fact that the freedmen did not have any support of the North to prevent the South from being able to achieve such extremes. Along with this reason,
uses ethos to effectively touch the emotions of the audience. Martin Luther King Jr. repeats the phrase, “I HAVE A DREAM TODAY!” to intensify the emotions and raise the hopes of many black people who are being treated as “second-class citizens” that one day they might get to be free. He talks about how he understands that many of the people that are listening to his speech had a difficult time to even get there. Martin Luther King Jr. uses the word “hope” many times in his argument.
Eleanor was more involved in the issues at hand in her time, such as fighting racism and sexism. Even though Michelle’s cause sounds a tad more trivial, they both combatted the important issues of their time; childhood obesity is an epidemic in our country today, and civil rights were essential back then. Another overlap between these two first ladies is that their activism and involvement in said issues was met by criticism by many. Michelle Obama’s efforts to promote healthy eating in minors has been met with disapproval from adults and gripping students alike. Eleanor Roosevelt faced this kind of resistance as well.
Three African American civil rights leaders helped change history by educating blacks. After reconstruction Ida B. Wells, Booker T. Washington, and WEB Dubois all educated blacks so that today we can have African Americans in higher authority positions like President Barack Obama. Booker T.

In a speech given by Former Nation of Islam leader, Malcolm X, he states “There can be no black-white unity until there is first some black unity.... We cannot think of uniting with others, until after we have first united among ourselves. We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.” Black solidarity was essential for African Americans to gain social and political acceptance in the United States, throughout history, there were attempts of African American solidarity as well as countervailing forces that have made it difficult. Although during the Civil Rights Movement, the goals were similar in all black organizations like the NAACP, SCLC, SNCC, and BBP to eliminate legalized racial segregation
Eating Healthy Michael Pollan, a health food spokesperson, made some interesting critiques on how he believes that there is an American paradox such as, “a notably unhealthy population preoccupied with… the idea of eating healthy” (Maxfield, 442). The idea taken from Michael Pollan’s quote is that he believes the definition of healthy eating has more to do with how it is “driven by a well-funded corporate machine” (Maxfield, 442). He is also claiming that the food industry is benefiting on our lack of knowledge on how to eat properly when it comes to being healthy. In her article Food as Thought: Resisting the Moralization of Eating, Mary Maxfield directly attacked Pollan’s claims, pointing out the hypocrisy in his words because he is sharing
1.
