Everyone trusted Harriet because they knew she wasn't doing this for herself, she was doing it for them. She told the slaves stories so that the could have the incentive to keep pushing so they can reach freedom. In the text on pg.135 it says,”Harriet had found it hard to leave the warmth and friendliness, too. But she urged them on.” Harriet Tubman was an amazing woman, her effect on people was extraordinary. She saved so many slaves and gave them freedom, something they never thought they could ever have.

Even though Grace did not serve many tours, she was still an exceptional leader. She worked behind the scenes to not only better the U.S. Navy but to also better the world of technology. I would consider Grace a transformational leader due to the fact that she is known for her expertise, knowledge and motivation. She would always look at an issue and try to find a better way around it instead of say "well this is how everyone else does it." She was never a follower, she always took risk of being a leader.
The second difference betweeen Tubman and her followers was the level of commitement. And example of this is when one of the escaped slaves said, "Let me go back. Let me go back," (Petry 3). This difference allowed her to emerge as a leader because even if the rest of her followers were quiting she was able to convinve them to keep fighting. The third difference between Tubman and her followers was she continued to rescue more slaves.
She was a brave soul who wanted peace and was very smart for her age. She would’ve done anything that was good for her tribe, hints her staying and not going back to Europe to be with the man she “loved”. Needless to say history can’t always be trusted. Pocahontas was never emotionally attached to John Smith, she may have saved his life however the story wasn’t the way John Smith said it to
Her husband, Henry, has the ranch to give him a sense of accomplishment; however, Elisa only has her chrysanthemums. This is why towards the end of the story the author states, “She tried not to look as they passed it, but her eyes would not obey. She whispered to herself sadly, He might have thrown them off the road. That wouldn’t have been much trouble, not very much. But he kept the pot, she explained.
She thought there needed a change and she was done giving in to racial segregation. "I felt just resigned to give what I could to protect against the way I was being treated." (UXL Biographies). Rosa Parks wanted to fix the way she was being treated along with anybody else that was treated that way. She is a strong independent women trying to let everyone know the
These two books show similar ways of never giving up. Wilma Unlimited didn't give up even though, she had polio. Henry didn't give up even though, he was a slave and had no family or friends. Wilma shipped away and was free. Eventually she became the fastest women in the world.
But, on the other side, everyone was supporting the owner to feel good. That was taken to the extent that the owner’s parents let him go to war to find the horse, putting their child’s life in danger. After saying this, the eldest girl of the three in “Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence” is the one I could relate to the most. This girl took a stand to not just her freedom but also to her sister’s and her cousin’s. She is a girl who could stand up for herself and who could express her thoughts truthfully, only needing to lie, to make sure that the younger ones would feel safe and in comfort.
What makes O-Lan the major character in The Good Earth is her control over various situations still without violating her vocal reservation. Her greatest achievement, out of her numerous collection, is the legacy she leaves behind and various examples set for her children and husband. Even though she lived a hard life of servitude, she still remained loving and never adverted away from her family. O-Lan remained selfless and loyal to her family although it is never truly appreciated until after she is gone. O-Lan’s greatest desire was to be noticed and wanted by others, especially those she slaved away most of her life to so altruistically.
Abolitionist Views: She thought slavery was wrong and she rescued and free a lot of slaves. She didn’t publish anything, but some books are made about her. She attended some anti-slave meetings and it supported the cause because it started gaining more followers. Harriet Tubman helped the effect of the abolitionist by a mile. She saved all those people and she is most likely the first person you think of when thinking of an abolitionist.
She haven’t been much recognized in public as she was freeing slaves in a private way. According to Britannica School, “By her extraordinary courage, ingenuity, persistence, and iron discipline, which she enforced upon her charges, Tubman became the railroad’s most famous conductor and was known as the “Moses of her people.” It has been said that she never lost a fugitive she was leading to freedom.” She had an unusual bravery, cleverness, determination,
His mother always steered him into the right direction and always warned him of avoiding outsiders. Every chance James got with his mother as a little kid was always a “high point of my day, a memory so sweet it is burned into my mind like tattoo (12).” She was a resilient and a loving woman to James. She always cared for her children and did not care what anyone did to her, but if it was towards her children she would do anything to protect them. Ruth was unique not only because she was the only white person in the neighborhood, but the fact that she could not “stand racists of either color (30).” She believed everyone should “strive for the highest professional goals (30)” no matter what color someone’s skin color is or what heritage they
When they sat to eat dinner he said he didn’t eat collards and the pork was unclean. This also, is ruining the tradition on African American culture. Maggie’s mother promised her quilts for when she married, and when Dee found them she criticized Maggie and how she would put these quilts to use. All these years Dee looked past and their traditions and now all the sudden she wants to have a part of it. In reality she doesn’t deserved a single piece.
