Douglass and Equiano were both Africans and slaves; however, they lived very different lives. They were both young children in their autobiographies reminiscing the horrors and hardships they had to undergo as young African slaves. Olaudah Equiano had a worse time, in my opinion, then Frederick Douglass. Equiano was able to know how it felt to be free. Moreover, he was a prince of his tribe because his father was the tribal elder of Benin.
The attack was labeled "the most lethal terrorism in human experience." Also, 9-11 was by far the worst terrorist attack on American siol. This attack took a lot of planning, many say it was "strategically planned" meaning they had everything very organized & in order. Not only was it very well planned, also the terrorists had arranged for the planes to crash into specific locations such as: the Twin Towers, the White House, & the Pentagon building in D.C. Approximately 3,000 lives were sadly lost during this horrible attack.

Morrison expresses the atrocities of slavery in a language that I personally have never experienced before. Instead of the typical overused adjectives and factual descriptions she employs beautiful metaphor and a disturbing plot line to make her point. She is raw and shocking. This technique sheds a light on slavery and the purposeful dehumanization of the slave that is almost never depicted in the history books. It is important when talking about the effect of slavery to consider what it takes for the slave owner to be able to treat another human being in such a bestial way.
The separation of African-American slave families is a thing that was happening for a very long time and I think that it still affects the nowadays African-Americans living in the USA. The trauma has been so profound and influential that it still exists in the minds of the slaves´ descendants. I would like to focus on some of the sociological and psychological issues which are connected with slavery and which are also a part of Uncle Tom´s Cabin plot. The ideal of domesticity has been reversed, forbidden and trodden down for the African-Americans and the impact of slavery is still playing an important role in their lives. They are still considered inferior by some people.

Over 200 children were murdered at Jonestown, almost all of them by cyanide poisoning. Jones died from a gunshot wound to the head. Jones was born in Indiana and started the Temple there in the 1950s. He later moved the Temple to California in the mid-1960s, and gained notoriety with the move of the Temple's headquarters to San Francisco in the early 1970s.
