“We must defend ourselves against all Indians in general, for they are all enemies” Bacon proclaimed to a crowd of poor, working class Virginians. In the summer of 1676, Nathaniel Bacon led a group of men through Native American territory in protest of the unfair land policies in Virginia. Tobacco was a major crop in Virginia, and because it was tough on soil there was not much fertile land in the colony.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a very established man who influenced America to make leaps and bounds in regards to racial injustice. He was born on January fifteenth, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, and led a very normal, two parent childhood, his father being a preacher and his mother also being very involved with the church, along with his two siblings.

To answer these questions, I researched each disease and asked each person how they think they got the disease and what they would’ve changed so that never got the disease in the first place. My paternal grandfather had a heart disease and my grandmother had lung cancer. I asked my father how he thinks his parents could’ve prevented their deaths from these diseases and he said my grandmother smoked cigarettes and my grandfather didn’t like to go to the doctor. Simple changes could’ve saved my grandparents life but like I learned in the Escape Fire Documentary even if people know they know how to prevent a disease they are sometimes too stubborn to help themselves.
