Langston Hughes (1902-1967) was a famous African-American poet, who was born in Missouri and was a part of the Harlem renaissance. He created this famous poem called, 'Mother to son' that was published in 1922 in a dialect form. This poem is about a mother who is giving strong, fierce, and positive advice to her son about life. It connects to not only the mothers who have kids but to the society who fought through hard times to get to where they are at now. In the 'Mother to son' poem, Hughes uses symbolism and imagery to convey the meaning of life and prove what it means to move forward and not give up in the political and social identity of this world called America.

The creation of the emancipation proclamation and reconstruction period offered hope to those who were once slaves. Essentially, the end of this treatment led to the loss of a strong capital for plantation owners. Reconstruction became a mission for white southerners to redeem the south and the beginning of a new labor force (Jelks). Post emancipation gave ‘freed’ people false hope and made them fight with strength to make their imprint on the world. James Brown, the King of Soul, went through life experiencing criminalization, labor, self-help, religion, politics and fear similar to that of his ‘freed’ counterparts.

C). The Chickasaw Indians were happy to see that their relationship with the Americans was improving due to the American Revolution.
Writing can change the way people see things. Words have the power to make something horrible seem good, or make an event in history seem very different than how it may have actually gone down. Throughout history, people have used words to empower and destroy people, to showcase something dark in a good light, or to show the darkness of a seemingly good event. One example of this is Andrew Jackson’s, On Indian Removal speech, and Michael Rutledge’s Samuel’s Memory.
