The book that I read entitled The Autobiography of Malcolm X written by Alex Haley. The book was a collaborative effort between the author and Malcolm X himself. Malcolm X would spend hours with Haley narrating his life events from his childhood and even till the day before he died, Malcolm X spoke shortly with Haley. “But people are always speculating – why am I as I am? To understand that of any person, his whole life, from birth, must be reviewed.

I’m going to be writing my paper on a song called “Crooked Smile” by J.Cole, J.cole or Jermaine Cole, was originally born in Germany. When he was 8 months old he and his mother moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina. He attended St. Johns University and graduated with great distinction, he got introduced to music when he was 12 by a family member and ever since then he has been infatuated with rap music and the art of storytelling through music. I feel as though the thesis of this song is simply this, why feel the need to impress someone who doesn’t care about you or why let your insecurities stop you from being great? I also sense that there is an underlying meaning inside the song that promotes not catering to the conformity of society, such as you don’t need a “perfect” body and an amazing face just to be a star to yourself.

Christopher Wallace was murdered March 9th, 1997 in Los Angeles, California at the age of 24. To put thing into perspective, Biggie died when I was only three years old, and yet his music has still been a huge part on my life. I remember the days of riding around with my dad as "the Ready to Die" album blasted through the speakers. As a kid and being unaware of the meaning of every bar, and not understanding certain references, he had the ability to paint a picture that even I could understand as a child. Listening to songs like "Warning" and envisioning a giant super hero defending himself from evil.
In the book The Alchemist, it is said that to lead a satisfying life you must first complete your personal legend. Before Santiago met Melchizedek (King of Salem) he did not know what a personal legend was. Melchizedek said it is what you have always wanted to accomplish (Coelho 23). Throughout the book, Santiago was pursuing his personal legend and overcoming many obstacles like losing all of his money, working as a crystal merchant, crossing the desert and turning himself into the
It seems to push the crowd closer to the stage. I could feel that we as black people had reached a plateau that we had reached as slaves. Today, it was our decision to be there, in these United States. Even the President (Bill Clinton) himself left town, because he knew that we would be arriving in great numbers. Like Moses told Pharaoh to let my people go, as he parted the water.
Rites of passage are an essential brick in the house of Americana. There are certain things a boy must do to be a man, at least that’s what the sitcoms on Nick-at-Nite taught me when I was a kid. You were a man when you bought your first car, got your first job and got laid for the first time. I’d done all those things by my eighteenth birthday and I still felt like a kid. After a while, I started to wonder if rites of passage were a crock of shit and nothing more.
Rama insists that all the vanaras who were killed in the war be resurrected before Lakshmana. Behaving ethically has already been dealt with. Rama realizes the concepts of Servant leadership by making service to his followers his life’s motto and providing concrete support to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs as well as subordinating his personal happiness to that of his subordinates. They in turn treat the leader as the role model and willingly expend all efforts in living up to his example and reach their potential. Though Greenleaf propounded servant leadership theory in the 20th century, Rama has shown how to walk the talk long
