From this letter you can see Tourgees clear use of the word “another” meaning that other Republican men were targeted and killed by the KKK all because they fought to have the South follow the same rules as the North. It was as though the KKK felt personally battered so they enjoyed doing to same to men that caused such emotions. Politics within the white community was not the only issue. As mentioned before African Americans did not get the political freedom that was actually granted to them not only because of their race and low standing but they were “ ‘unfitted for the proper exercise of political duties… blacks needed a period of probation and instruction’ “ (Document D). The idea of them being an unfit race who was in need of probation and instruction seemed to more closely relate to white Klansmen of the South.
Douglass states that he does not know the reason why he decided to stand up for himself. However, his self esteem and value most likely increased subconsciously as an outcome of his education on slavery. After the exhausting altercation, Covey showed a sign of defeat for the first time.

If he punished Douglass it would be a confession of his failure to break a slave, his reputation would be ruined.
Auld. He started to learn the alphabet and as well form words. Throughout this learning experience with Mrs. Auld he had the opportunity to learn and become educated. He came to a realization that many slaves both men and women were deprived from this form of privilege because their slave holders believed that literacy would cause for the slaves to rebel and act against them. Although Mrs. Auld had great intentions to help Frederick but her husband on the other hand was against his education.
Fredrick Douglas was not as happy as he expected to be when he was finally able to read. He stated, “I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing.” He is saying reading only gives him new worries, and no hopes. In the paragraph he talks about how reading would solve one of his problems, only to create a bigger one. This frustrated him because he wanted to figure out how to solve all of his problems. He also wanted to find a book about a slave talking to his master, without getting hurt.
Some examples of the use of pathos come from “Chapter 4, Sold Again”, it seems that everything is going good, because a man named Daniel Queen was educating him and even became a father figure to him. Then everything abruptly changed when his master decided to sell him and threatened to kill him if he were to get out of his sight. This part of the text changed everything and may even sadden the reader because while reading this part of the text the reader, may think about being in Equianos shoes and how horrible that may be. Equianos needs to make the reader sympathize for him in order to make the reader realize the horrid conditions that he went through in his struggle through
Slaves were not supposed to be able to read or write and this made it hard. His mistress always got mad anytime she saw him reading. It was hard for him to accept the things he had read since they gave him more details about his race and what he was going through. Douglass learning how to read and write caused him to deal with his readings emotionally and mentally. Alexie thought that him learning how to read made him smart and he was very proud of doing so.
With limited options for women professions, Dix decides to open an elementary school inside her grandmother’s house in 1821. The school was named "the Hope" and it served mainly the poor children of Boston whose parents could not afford an education. Unfortunately, the school came to a closing in 1826 due to Dorothea being repeatedly and sporadically ill. At this time, Dorothea wrote her first book, Conversations on Common Things. This book for children was quite popular and sold many copies. The book reflected Dix’s belief that women should be educated to the same level as men.
Olaudah Equiano at the tender age of eleven, experienced astonishment and terror as he was isolated from the only safe place he kenned, his habitation Igbo Land (present day Nigeria) by slave traders.

My teacher noticed my struggle and called on another kid, Briggs Huxford, to “help” me- which really just meant that he was going to read that section. To this day, 8 years later, that was one of the most disappointing and embarrassing situations I have ever been in. In the summer of 2006 at my dad’s house in New Mexico, I learned to read. My step mom taught me. The Pirate Book- I don’t know the official book name or how I acquired it,
This can be noticed throughout the book and in the three scenes talked about before because the white characters in the book often times make irrational comments about slaves that relate to what they are doing themselves. Twain’s use of irony the scene about Huck being upset with the fact that Jim would steal his family back if he had too, shows that Huck did not think Jim should be able to and was not deserving enough to have his own family. This shows the greater truth of slavery because even though Huck likes Jim, he did not agree with Jim’s want to have a free family. The scene where the Duke, the King, and Huck are categorizing slaves as thieves, when they themselves are thieves shows the greater truth of slavery that slaves were categorized into certain types of people, even though it was not true of all slaves. The scene were Tom says that he would hang a slave if they were ungrateful and ranaway shows the greater truth of slavery that if a slave disobeyed, they deserved death.
