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.

In the article “Becoming Members of Society,” Aaron Devor mentions that confidence is one of the most important characters of men (393). Through the movie, it is easy to realize that Gardner was really confident since he never showed any fear in bad situations where people mostly feel nervous.

Due to his dirty appearance, he made interviewers think that he looked down on them. He was not embarrassed, but he controlled himself to remain calm by explaining the reasons for his casual performance.
The others followed along.

Why does a street sweeper dare come into here?” (Rand 62) As Equality walked in there he felt very looked down on, and they saw him as nothing important. The council thought they were more important than him. Collectivism was showing in this part by the council thinking they were higher than Equality when he walked into there home. Before he found the Subway underground he used to think that the everybody thought of everybody as the same people except for the council of scholars, who are the smart people of the society and look down upon people who are less superior than them. All in all people do not think of everybody as the same people, some people think they are higher than the person next to
