The protestors of the war had a massive impact on society at the time; they brought different races, genders, and classes all across the country together to protest the government and its choices. The protestors, which began as a small group of university students and grew to include a vast number of groups and people, led to a unification the likes of which the country had never seen, and
Whether they were supportive or oppositional to the current events, Americans began to openly voice their opinions in the form of protests. Politics, economics, and global issues were not the only issues Americans were upset about. African Americans began to stand up and protest for the rights that should have been theirs since the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. The Civil Rights Movement was born. In times of unrest, music rises up as a form of opinion.
In order to stop racism in this country, Ged Grebby started the Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC), an anti-racism education charity aiming to educate people in England about racism and how to end it. Grebby is trying to lure famous male athletes to spread the message about racism, knowing that many people look up to them. Overall, this organization has been very successful that as years go by, they can end racism not only in Britain, but all over the world. All around the world, football (soccer) is a popular sport to play. One match alone unites people from other countries.

He connected with the audience by keeping them engaged. He was influential not only with his public speaking, but with propaganda. Hitler created propaganda that would influence the citizens of Germany to think that the Jews were inferior. Another way he used his influential attribute was by violence. When a fire started in the Reichstag building, Hitler used it as a way to start series of terrorist acts against politicians he considered enemies (“Hitler, Adolf”).
Each poster, radio broadcast, movie, and newspaper that was created to influence the emotions, and attitudes of citizens had an impact on the society of the world. Popular propaganda images of racial slurs or stereotypes would help raise national involvement for World War II, but would also fuel opposing nations hatred. For example, the United States propaganda used harsh, fear driven, and barbaric images of the German person which gathered American support for military members. The controlled production of German propaganda in return, used every image that connected the United States to the horrible, discriminative, and racist actions the nation had throughout it’s

Shepard Fairey's work has a political stand, which makes people question the government and their daily lives. The campaign was unplanned and it was a result of a accidental incident. Shepard Fairey
Drew Gilpin Faust’s, This Republic of Suffering: Death and the American Civil War, is an intensive study that reflects on the impact of the Civil war had on the soldiers and civilians. Faust wanted to show that, as they dealt with and mourned over the overwhelming amount of carnage, the nation and the lives of the American people were already changed forever. Although there are many other publications relating to the Civil war, she is able to successfully reflect upon the morbid topic of death in the Civil war in a new and unique way. This book shows the war in a whole different perspective by focusing less on quantifying and stating the statistics of the civil war deaths. Rather, she examines more closely on how the Civil War deaths transformed the “society, culture and politics,” and the impact it had on the lives of the Americans in the 19th century.
Black on White, and White on Black violence was a regular occurrence. Many knew that a riot was impending due to the signs that were around, especially regarding the racial tension. What could be added to the tension was the growth of the city with regard to the mix of people as mentioned earlier – ex-confederates, “backwoods preachers, Southern white evangelists, and shouters” was part of the population. This meant that Detroit became a melting pot not only for religious and racial intolerance, but also for agitators such as the Black Legion, and the Ku Klux Klan. Brown’s view gives one an overview of Detroit that was perhaps built on the wrong foundations, and which led to what it became in the twenty-first century as well – the fourth city of the United States that died because of its race intolerance.
Nations struggled to keep their people invested in the fight, and subliminal phrases and images became the key to sway citizens. Posters would highlight images of the ideal man, masculine and strong, subliminally instructing others to “do their duty” and protect their homeland. This was prior to the establishment of laws that could coerce citizens to serve in the armed forces, meaning that most countries had to rely strictly on volunteers. Encouraging as many men as possible to join was vital to many war efforts, and this consistent use of propaganda made those who refrained from enlisting feel inferior and cowardly. This resulted in many successfully drafting into the military forces (“Posters”).
