Andrew Young Jr.: One of the Many Spiritual Leaders of The Civil Rights Movement When I think about the civil rights movement a few prominent names come to mind, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, and Malcom X. These highly influential people and many like them have served as the faces of the movement, but it is important to understand that the movement was a culmination of the works of many. Rooted in the spirituality of African-Americans, the civil rights movement called upon the entire community to work together and effect change in the world around them. Apart from Martin Luther King, Andrew Young Jr. was one of the many spiritual leaders who took on a prominent role in guiding African-Americans in the fight for equality.
African American Strife Lorraine Hansberry ’s play A Raisin in the Sun and the motown music of the Civil Rights era demonstrate the struggles African Americans faced during segregation. Both of these works explore ideas of perseverance, searching for freedom, and the longing for respect that many encountered. Mama relates to Mahalia Jackson’s song “We Shall Overcome” because of her religious perseverance and hope for the future of her and her family.
American children of Romanian origin are often taught both Romanian and English. One of the best known foods of Romanian origin is Pastrama. Not only are we listening to their music, going to their churches and eating their food. Our government is working together with them to help be a great county together. In 2011, the United States and Romania issued the “Joint Declaration on Strategic Partnership for the 21st Century Between the United States of America and Romania.”
When I was a little boy, I had a repertoire of cultural events that my parents and I would attend. Some events were lackadaisical--like going to church every Sunday morning. And others were buzzy and delightful--like when we would dress in beaded girdles around the shank and the waist and also brandish other instruments of music such as the maraca. We would wear around the head and the shins wreaths of plumage, and with each footfall, the beads would chime, creating a hullabaloo of cheery music. As a little kid, although I didn’t know it at the time, this ensemble of music and church going were as much a part a my culture as they were a part of my “real” identity as I had come to know it at the time: my being black.
Communities would take care of children when fathers were sold down the river. Often entire families, such as aunts and grandparents would care for the children (document H). With the influence of whites, many blacks converted to Christianity and many times other slaves would preach (document F). Sometimes slavery led to negative conflicts such as uprisings (document C) but the social webs formed through slavery led to, not only a new community but language “Nullah”. Society and community are now important values, like family, for African American in the current South of the United
Rosa McCauley Parks, mother of the civil rights movement. Rosa was born on February 4th 1943, in Tuskegee, Alabama. Her childhood revolved around a small church named the African Methodist Episcopal Church where her uncle was the priest. Rosa spoke about how the church had been a strong supporter for black equality throughout many generations. The main reason I have chosen this Inquiry Question is because I believe that Rosa Parks, and the fact that she was simply brave enough to stand up to segregation with such a modest act, contributed greatly to the civil rights movement and gave not only the colored race but specifically colored women the courage to stand up and fight for equality.
The 1800s were a time of development, less people were worried about their faith, yet the bible was still used a model for their daily life’s. Dr. Daniel Dreisbach a professor at American University said,” the bible was the most common book” back in the early years and in the beginning of the country nearly everyone had a bible, and many of the founders were involved in many bible projects. When looking in to the past rather than being loyal to their religion most people valued the bible, most of the time religion just separated people in groups. Dr. Dreisbach quotes, “generations of Americans look to the bible for a mode” of Government, power separation, duel process, and how a person should be. people used and still use the bible as a “moral compass”, to say that religion had immense influence in the history of America, it’ll be simpler to just say that religion and the bible lead many important people to become who they were, and made
I was raised catholic, which often consisted of me going to mass every Sunday, and Bible study on Wednesdays, and I even went to Bible school during the summer. Honestly, my faith was included in everything that I did as child, and it kept my family close. However, as an adult, I would say that while I am spiritual, I’m not really a religious person anymore, if that makes sense. I honestly feel like religion is too restrictive, but I do pray on a daily basis reverting back to practices of old with regard to Catholicism. I would say that I’m lower middle class, and at times it can be a struggle because I don’t like living paycheck to paycheck, but I manage on what I make currently.
The character of Aunt Hagar embodied the spirit and beauty of the working class. She was an elderly wash-woman, who was loved by blacks and whites. But she maintained a strong sense of self. She went to an African- American church and embraced its spiritual beliefs. She took pride in herself and her work.
Many Christ followers and those interested in learning His word struggle to find the right worship service. Friendship Baptist Church in Warner Robins, GA, invites newcomers with open arms to their warm, welcoming worship services. The congregation treats guests like friends, so you’ll feel at ease as soon as you walk through the doors. Friendship Baptist Church encourages everyone to find peace by serving God, and every visitor—no matter their background—is treated with the utmost respect.
As the Christian religion spread throughout the African American population, so did the rise of courageous African American leaders that were inspired by their faith. Leaders like Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, W.E.B. Du Bois, Martin Luther King Jr. and many more emerged to stand up and fight for freedom and righteousness. But was it because of their faith in Christianity that they stood up and fought, or was it really because they just got tired of living in oppression? Many parishioners, people who belong to or attend church, were convinced to become leaders and activists not in spite of their religion but because of the
Nat Turner and Denmark Vasey were two very strong slave revolt leaders. There are many similarities of the two men. From the time they were younger, they both grew up in families who were slaves themselves. They knew how Both families were religious; they both went to church. They both had help from church members in their revolt.
In the African American church, no matter the size, there is a strong sense of identity. This is evident by a “us” versus “them” mentality. However, some churches are able to break the mold by growing to become a Shepherding-Size Congregation. This church has between 50 and 150 active members.
