Garrison joined organization and did everything he could to fight against slavery. Garrison used different methods to talk to people about slavery.

For example Sharp revealed that the Jewish religion which says they should love others as themselves still owned slaves.
The Constitution, until recently, did not apply to blacks; blacks feel they deserve payments from 310 years of slavery, destruction to their minds and culture. Dr. Martin Luther King's dilemma in the United States was of a different kind. He was torn between his identity as a Black man of African descent and his identity as an American. He urged Americans to judge based on the content of the character not by skin color and also believed in non-violent protests. Martin Luther King Jr’s main perspective during the fight on racism was equality.
The American Civil war To what extent was the American Civil War effective? Melissa Horacek – Year Eleven Modern History Melissa Horacek – Year Eleven Modern History The Civil War, is a war between civilians, began due to the fear of the abolishment of slavery. Its purpose for the South was to continue slavery, while the North fought for the abolishment of slavery. When the United States was established by colonists and a constitution was created, the constitution did not abolish slavery, but incorporated compromises made by the men who crafted it. Some, especially Northerners who didn’t really adopt slavery had little slaves living there, apposed slavery, they were referred to as Abolitionists.
“Saint-Domingue Number Two” The Haitian Revolution was one the most influential transformations that took place in the early nineteenth century. Toussaint Louverture, the founding father of the revolution, inspired many Americans and slaves to revolt and speak out for the abolishment of slavery. In Toussaint Louverture and the American Civil War: The Promise and Peril of a Second Haitian Revolution by Matthew Clavin, it is explained how the memory of the Haitian Revolution, along with Toussaint Louverture, helped ignite the fire within Americans to start the Civil War and how the revolution impacted the war’s transformation. During the Antebellum South, slavery became so vital that southern slave owners were willing to fight to keep their slaves. While Inventions, such as the cotton gin, enhanced the necessity for slaves in the south, slavery was disappearing from the rest of the world.
Even as this great country began, slavery began its downward spiral and abolitionism started to come to the forefront. From the time the Declaration of Independence was signed, abolitionism was on the rise in the United States of America. Between the years of 1776 and 1865 many tactics were used by abolitionists to end slavery. While legislation and the media played a large part in the advancement of abolitionism, so did conferences, organizations, and movements along with direct action.

They take the reader through pivotal moments in the South and North to enumerate the chain of events that lead to the achievements and failures of the African-Americans in society. My review led me to understand the Black Power movement as an effort to overcome the colonizer. Black people need to define themselves without the influence of white society. The authors were vocal about the downfall of blacks trying to assimilate into white middle class. In a passionate effort to convey their message, they gave an overview of significant political and life altering moments in history.
Many died to hands of whites for their participation in these rebellions. Whites of the Southern states tried hard to keep slavery the way it was but with the steady growing number of free educated blacks in the Northern states grew the desire for slaves to obtain the same. In the North, blacks were able to obtain an education, work as well as own their own stores. Eventually, Abraham Lincoln got into office and many Southern Whites believed he sided on the abolishment of slavery so they made their states separate from that of the Northern portion of the United States. Lincoln supported the Union, which were the Northern States which held free blacks, and gave the Confederate States an ultimatum to join back with the Union or war will begin.
It is not rational to believe that being "color-blind" aids racism and our country is in a post racial space. "For example, critical multi- cultural education brings the significance of race to the fore in its analysis of social relations (Ladson-Billings, 1997), whereas liberal discourses tend to disguise racial inequality by employing the rhetoric of equal opportunity and fair treatment. Looking at race critically is the only way to closely analyze the way it effects American society. Talking about race liberally does nothing more than avoid the real problem. Recent tragedies rooted in racism, such as school shootings, mass incarceration of blacks, and the widening gap of income inequality prove that America is far from post racial attitudes.
