The speech was a very informative speech, addressing students with various facts and praises of the foundation of North Carolina Central University. NCCU is in fact praiseworthy. In 1910, James E. Shepard founded NCCU under the unique name, “National Religious Training School and Chautauqua for the Colored Race”. James E. Shepard was a pharmacist and religious educator, whom graduated from Shaw University, and later on in 1895, he married his wife Annie D. Shepard. Mrs. Shepard was the one who wrote the lyrics to North Carolina Central University 's Alma Mater, “Dear Old N.C.C”. She even wrote the column “A Moment of Meditation” in the Federation Journal.

“I found solitary confinement the most forbidding aspect of prison life. There is no end and no beginning; there is only one's mind, which can begin to play tricks. Was that a dream or did it really happen? One begins to question everything.”This is a quote from Nelson Mandela who spent 27 years in prison and many of those years in solitary confinement. He only got through with intense determination which many criminals don’t have. Solitary confinement should not be allowed and must be banned. Solitary confinement, or SHU(special housing unit), causes severe mental problems as well as brain damage. Solitary confinement violates basic human rights. SHU is not just used for the “worst of the worst”, it is a common punishment for misbehavior in
“To all my fellow Americans beyond this hall, I say, one thing we owe those who have sacrificed is the duty to purge ourselves of the dark forces which gave rise to this evil. They are forces that threaten our common peace, our freedom, our way of life. Let us teach our children that the God of comfort is also the God of righteousness: Those who trouble their own house will inherit the wind. Justice will prevail.” Clinton uses an avenging to tone against the evil that committed this mass tragedy. He establishes that he believes evil is responsible for the victims deaths. He suggests that God and justice will make this right to the families of every victim, and that their lives/deaths mean something. Clinton has various uses of repetition in his speech. “That’s God’s work.” The repetition of God emphasizes that there is an “almighty being” that is there with the victims, the families, and everyone in the nation; and He is standing next to them, side by side. He (Clinton) suggests that we shouldn’t lose hope and faith because God is there with us. He wants us to know that we are safe and God is helping us to make it through this tragedy.
Have you heard of the quote “The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on”? Most would have not, but you most definitely heard of the name Barack Obama. A now very successful man who I admire greatly. However, his life wasn 't without challenges, especially in his childhood. Obama had a very charred and challenged childhood. There were 3 major challenges in his life. Racism, betrayal and struggle. Today I wish to inform you about the challenges that faced the future 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama II.
Night by Elie Wiesel describes his experiences as a Jew in the concentration camps during World War II. During this time, Wiesel witnessed many horrific acts. Two of these were executions. Though the processes, of the executions were similar, the condemned and the Jews’ reactions to the execution were different.
The first hanging, the Warsaw native who had been in the camp for three years, was fully grown and filled with defiance towards his German captors. He showed no fear of his executors, refused to be blindfolded and before his death, shouted out his denunciation of the action being taken. On page 62 of Night by Elie Wiesel it states “The hangman...was about to signal his aides to pull the chair from under the young man's feet when the latter shouted, in a strong and calm voice: "Long live liberty! My curse on Germany! My curse! My -" The executioner had completed his work.” This opinion of the Germans was shared by Elie and the other prisoners. They agreed with the condemnation of the prisoner and celebrated someone expressing these thoughts.

There are so many topics I believe that Richard Wright would've talked about today that it is hard to narrow down to just three. If someone told him that we would have a black president in the next century we definitely would have looked at you like you were crazy but if he were here today he would be proud of how much better we have come today. We have improved as a country today for equal rights and treatment of black people but we also still have a long way to go for we are not perfect. For example he would be very ashamed how black people are still getting killed just because of their skin color. He would also be disappointed that blacks are still getting paid less statistically less than whites considering how many jobs Richard had growing up.
