“One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination (1).” In this quote, King compares segregation and discrimination to the manacles and chains because they both held something down. Segregation and discrimination fastened colored people to the lower levels of society, like the manacles and chains that bonded slaves to the land of their masters. This is an example of pathos, as King uses this simile to evoke the emotions of sympathy and empathy out of his audience. Though slavery had end by this period, colored people still felt as if they were being controlled by the effects of segregation and discrimination. The usage of the quote shows how important accomplishing the task of making the audience fully understand the
King’s peaceful methods, and advocated for violence if necessary, it was surely Malcolm X. It was his belief that African Americans should pursue the advancement of their rights and eventual equality by any means necessary. This seeming justification of violence is often scrutinized for what it brings about, which often times is pain and suffering. Similar to King, Malcolm saw the denial of civil rights as morally and ethically intolerable. He often spoke about the violence of racism, and frequently cited examples, which ranged from attacks from police dogs and their club-equipped guards, to being washed down by high-pressured water hoses in broad daylight.
The passivity of Black people allowed racism to flourish. While Black’s practiced the religion that had been forced upon their ancestors, the descendants of the owners of their ancestors continued to abuse them. White men rapped Afrika, pillaging the culture, enslaving the people and conditioning us to forget. Joe is the epitome of the negative affects of an Afrikan trying to assimilate to a white world. He wanted so bad to be seen as different, as unlike his Afrika embracing mother as he could.
In his cartoon, Nast depicts the African-American as a hero who deserves to be recognized as such. He admires the blacks who fought for the Union and believes they should attain equal rights. Thomas Nast was a strong Lincoln supporter and a radical Reconstructionists who believed in suffrage for blacks and a much harsher treatment of the South. Even though Nast knew suffrage was a birthright, he determined that his audiences needed the additional justification of
Trace one of the following patterns of figurative language throughout King's letter: darkness and light, high and low, sickness and health. King refers to sickness as a metaphor and simile to describe the feelings of injustice. For example, “like a boil that can never be cured so long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light" (24). And the, “the disease of segregation” (32). Using diseases coupled with the treatment of blacks provide the clergy or readers something they can relate to.
A family is a family, and the love between one is unbreakable. Green motivates blacks by a reminder of their “brethren” down south. He claims they are “oppressed” and are in need. He portrays slavery with “a tyrant system”, giving African American’s even more motivation to serve and fight against the injustice in the South. Finally, Green uses his ability in diction to motive African American’s.
Have you ever woke up from your lovely dream to wake up to the sound of crying children the sound of strong rubber whips hitting the back of a black man or women well I wish u will never have to. People I am here to day to change transformed and modify your thoughts on slavery and show you the brutal part of it and why slaves should have the same freedom as everyone else.

Her book Uncle Tom's Cabin, published in 1852, showed not only how slavery brutalized the men and women who were forced to endure it, but also how the establishment of slavery affected slaveholders. Stowe personalized the experiences and effects of slavery and convinced many Americans that slavery was morally wrong. This book later served as fuel to the abolitionist cause of ending the war. Uncle Tom's Cabin is dominated by a single theme: the evil and immorality of slavery. While Stowe has other subthemes throughout her text, such as the moral authority of motherhood and the redeeming possibilities offered by Christianity, she emphasizes the connections between these and the horrors of slavery.
This song represents the hard pressed labor of the construction of the railroads, and highways which left the laborers of the times with demands of payment and reparations for the horrors and exploitation of the working class African Americans. The song talks about mainly slavery and how blacks were and are constantly being oppressed with no compensation. They relate so much to the Civil Rights because all the people who were being oppressed were looking for has retribution. The song really hits home for the time and the audience it was referred

Slavery was so victimized that it still affects the society to the extent that black people blame the whites , and white people still agree that black people need to be slaves.
