Have you ever wanted to make something that was unjust fair? Well probably not as bad as John Brown. John Brown was an abolitionist who lived before the civil war who wanted to abolish slavery so bad that he gathered around twenty slaves and tried to capture an armory but failed ultimately. The agreement about this between the South and the North is that he tried to abolish slavery by killing many slave owners , but this is where the views separated.
Although white people suffered horrifically during the Great Depression, blacks suffered much worse; being kicked out of unskilled jobs that even white people had scorned even before the Depression.

It was found later by Ruby Bates in another trial that they had seen 2 men before they left for the train. She told them that they had sexual intercorse with the 2 men that night before they left. The jury did not believe her because Samuel Leibowitz, the lawyer of the negroes, found her while she was in hiding and had her hiding until it was the right time to tell the jury what happened. Samuel was a white lawyer that defended the 9 negroes because he said that they were like everybody else and deserve the same rights as everyone.

I think Theodore Roosevelt did not set the country on an unsustainable path to ruin. It’s extremely hard to predict the future on something like what a country will turn into. Theodore Roosevelt probably didn't think about the future consequences of his decisions. I don’t blame him for that he probably thought he was doing the right thing. We can’t blame someone who’s been dead for 97 for the current economic problems.

Problems, or adversity, has occurred in everyone’s life at some point, but there are certain qualities that not only conquer adversity but create great leaders in the process.

However, by exercising these qualities, ordinary people show great potential by demonstrating these qualities in difficult times. Leaders from both the past and the present have conquered adversity using qualities such as resilience, courage, and motivational skills and have risen to be well respected leaders in their own aspects of life.
In September 1901 Theodore Roosevelt became president when William McKinley was assassinated. He thought that the presidency was basically a “bully pulpit”. Roosevelt was “a steward of the people bound actively and affirmatively to all he could for the people” (Divine 2013, p. 546). Roosevelt tried to bridge the gap between the African Americans and the whites but most southerners believed that what he was trying to do was a crime that was equal to treason.
