For example, had the government continued to fund the Freedmen’s Bureau, then the South would have legislated their discriminatory laws much later, if not at all. If the Freedmen’s Bureau had continued, African Americans and poor whites would have continued to receive support from the government as well as from other volunteers, such as carpetbaggers and scalawags. Over time, Southerners would begin to realize that former slaves were becoming equals to them, and slowly begin to accept it, especially since blacks would have the resources and people to enforce this idea. This would lead to America being the just and equal society citizens had wanted since the
The analysis of the study shows that the African- Americans during the 17th and 19th century toward the white settler many dialects that existed in the Southern American colonies that existed at the time. The black people who lived in America needed to use the language as a tool in their everyday life in order to communicate. As a result of that they acquired the language and transformed it adding their own elements in it so they can speak it easier. The study admits that AAVE was not a creole but a reconstruction of the dialects that existed in the southern colonials . The main three factors that AAVE was never a creole are: First, plenty of attributes such as “negative copula/perfect ain't, invariant don't, negative concord” were absorbed into the AAVEE without the slightest change from settlers dialects.
African Americans and the first lady created the Southern Conference for Human Welfare (SCHW). (Kaye 76). FDR may not have been inspired to help blacks consistently ,but his wife was always trying to improve their conditions in society. She worked together with the blacks to create organizations that improved blacks welfare and civil rights.
In the same year, similar kinds of Jim Crow laws came about called which they called ¨black codes¨. Before the Civil War, both races could work side by side, but as long as the slave knew his place. In 1877 the Supreme Court ruled a case called Hall vs. DeCuir which states how blacks could not share common carries such as railroads or streetcars. The Louisiana Separate Car Act marked a remarkable impact for black or mixed-raced citizens in the states of Louisiana. As years went on laws came and gone, but over all blacks and white were finally as equal as white women and white men.
White philanthropists taught religious, Agriculture and Mechanical studies. The education taught by them were limited training in basic skills. The fact that most African Americans were slaves and therefore success of education doing the Civil War years, occurred more with the ending
Martin Luther King Jr. once stated "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." (“Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes at BrainyQuote.com”) This quote connects with some cases that happened well before the Civil Rights, because the court rulings gave one race more accommodations than another race. The cases decided that African Americans had to go to different schools and even use different water fountains. One case dealt with a slave living in "free" territory.
Black History Month started in 1915 and was made to appreciate colored people and has carried on for centuries and is still around. The good and the bad in the declaration.The good is the African-Americans won at the declaration at court. The Whites thought it was a problem because of how they saw African-Americans(Negroes).They thought their white children wouldn 't get as much education.The African-Americans have improved their Stereotype by graduating and finding cures for almost unsolvable things.
The American Revolution, was an inspiration to black people and they’d hoped the words and rules of the Patriots go for them as well. But that wasn’t the case. When all of the Armies had gone away from the land, we were a country of farmers founded by notions of freedom. We had over 700,000 slaves working in the US at its birth. They had no rights to anything and this would last generations.
The Reconstruction is the first thing I would talk about. I believe many people still have the impression that once slaves were freed in the South, that was it—all of a sudden everything was great for them, when in reality, they were essentially still slaves. I never knew about the black codes, vagrant laws, and sharecropping that took place in the South until this class. Slavery is covered as early as 7th grade, and I believe that the Reconstruction period following it is a significant enough event that it should be addressed sooner, perhaps in high school, so even those who choose to not attend college have the chance to hear about it. The next thing I would talk about is the philosophy of containment during the Cold War.
For most of the United States’ history, civil rights for the black community was essentially nonexistent. Most African-Americans were forced into slavery and the law rarely sided with them on matters that involved the majority. However, as time progressed the black minority was given more and more liberties. For example, during Abraham Lincoln’s time as President of the United States, slavery was abolished; however, the black community still did not have the same rights as the majority. Nearly 100 years later, the Civil Rights Movement was able to successfully make the government pass legislation that would give African-Americans the same rights as that of the majority.
To have separate schools for the black and white children became a basic rule in southern society. After the Brown vs. Board of Education case, this all changed. Once the Civil War and slavery ended, the question of African American 's freedom remained. African Americans were given their freedom from slavery but, at the same time, were not their freedom from segregation.
Southern states defended slavery by using history:” Slavery has been legal for a long time before now, so it is a natural thing to do.” On the other hand, the main point was that slaves planting and picking cotton would heavily boost the economy. There were plenty of other reasons justifying why slavery should be legal, but these were some main points. African-American people during pre-civil war times had a harsh life. Many black people during this time just mainly worked all of their lives non-stop. Thinking back, if slavery still existed now with all of this technology it would be even more wrong than it was before.
When someone thinks of a great African American hero, they usually think of someone such as Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, and to a lesser extent, Harriet Tubman. But many names, such as Robert Smalls, go unnoticed, even though they too, did something incredible that helped win freedom for themselves and others. Smalls is just one hero, and here is his story: On April 5, 1839, Robert Smalls was born into slavery on a Beaufort plantation. Since his father was likely his master, he was treated well as a house slave. But his mother, Lydia, never forgot her past hardships of working all day in the fields.
