African American history is the time of American history that involves the African American or Black American groups in the USA. Most African American’s come from African descent and were forcibly brought to and held captive in the United States of America from 1555 to 1865. Africans were captured in African wars and transported to be used as slaves. The first African slaves were brought to Virginia in 1619.
1. What factors differentiate the history and experience of African Americans from those of Asian, Hispanic, and Native Americans? The factors that would separate African Americans from racial ethnic groups would be their involuntary immigration and initial enslavement. Other groups came in hopes of political freedom and economic opportunity. While African Americans history and experience were based upon economic exploitation, the denial of freedom, denied their language, history, culture, ancestral ties and homeland affiliation.
Back to School is a speech which was delivered by Barack Obama, current President of the United States, at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia, on the first day of school in 2009. It was also broadcast to other schools across the country. He starts with making clear that he is sympathetic with how tough it is for many of the students to get up this early, particularly the older ones who’d probably much rather have “stayed in bed just a little longer this morning ”. This is done in an attempt to make it clear to the students that he has not lost all connection to his past.
With November eighth approaching fast, political parties are making their last-ditch efforts to sway voters in their favor. In order for the parties to know whether their tactics are working or not, they need to know the polling results. Therefore, both parties are pushing for voters to vote early, so they can see who is leading in the polls. This allows people to predict who will win. That is why President Barack Obama uses a commercial to call voters to vote early.
Have you heard of the quote “The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on”? Most would have not, but you most definitely heard of the name Barack Obama.
How were captives treated during their journey otherwise known as the Middle Passage? The Middle Passage refers to the journey in which Africans were transported across the Atlantic to the West Indies as slaves and were then sold or traded for raw materials. Due to the fact that Africans were considered as less than human, the conditions they were forced to endure during the Middle Passage were appalling. Evidently, the conditions varied by ship and voyage, yet the same problems arose; disease, abuse, lack of food and water as well as inadequate living conditions.
African Americans are cultural people. There was only one problem with that. They were very skilled in planting crops so settlers from the Carolinas wanted them to work on their plantations. This is unfortunate for the Africans because this meant trouble.
When describing Nelson Mandela, President Barack Obama said in one of his speeches, “I think he’s a hero for the world. And if and when he passes from this place, one thing I think we’ll all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages.” Mandela, at the time, was South Africa’s first elected president and a racial rights activist who was greatly admired. Obama’s description in his speech sounds almost exactly like that of Beowulf, a hero of the great epic of the same name. He was known for his legacies that had been heard across Scandinavia during the Anglo-Saxon period and around the world to this day, similarly to Mandela.

Former President Obama draws from John Kerry’s past experiences and beliefs to prove why he is qualified for the position of president. Barack Obama gives examples such as “his heroic service in Vietnam,” “his years as prosecutor and lieutenant governor,” and his service of “two decades in the United States Senate” to provide the audience with hard facts concerning Kerry’s loyalty to the country (Obama). This appeals to the people’s logical reasoning in choosing Kerry over his opponent Bush. Obama tells the crowd that “John Kerry believes in the constitutional freedoms that have made our country the envy of the world, and he will never sacrifice our basic liberties nor use faith as a wedge to divide us,” so that they are clear on his beliefs and may support him as president (Obama). Obama uses rhetorical appeals in his speech to establish
