Abstract Francis Sumner is wrote down in history as the “Father of Black Psychology”. This critique observes the early education of Sumner that was the building blocks to his success. His education and contributions to early psychology is discussed in this critique to show that whatever one puts their mind to can be achieved through commitment and hard work. Being an African American was already hard, but being a male paralyzed his education for a year. He had to enlist in the Army, but that did not change the young black man he was before all of that.
In front of a predominantly white audience he asked that white southerners hired blacks because of their love for white people they serviced. Washington praised black loyalty and fidelity to whites. He claimed that blacks would be a great burden on society if they would continue to be oppressed. In my opinion the most important point in Washington’s speech was his position on economic prosperity as opposed to equality. Washington believed that blacks should have the opportunity to earn a living, but not necessarily be equal to blacks; he stated that blacks and whites should be “two different fingers on a hand”.
Abraham Lincoln Came into presidency with a lot on his plate, he wanted to reunite the north and the south and to put in place the emancipation proclamation. He knew what was good for the union and had his own opinion on slavery which was against it. Lincoln was fighting for a new birth of freedom not just reuniting the union. The south depended on slaves on the plantation, that’s how they were maintaining since they did not have to pay the slaves. The North with all the industrial business had a total different way of life and can see how they totally disagreed with the way slaves were being used and treated.
Up until this point in the film, the low angle shot had been used only on Coach Boone, as he is the natural leader. Whenever he is saying something meaningful and inspirational to pull the team together, such as the scene at the training camp on the site of the Battle of Gettysburg, he is in low angle. By showing Blue in low angle, the director is showing that the young players are rising to the challenge and taking on real leadership roles. This will be important if racial tension is to be dealt
He underestimated the slave army because of what they were. He did not order guards to protect camp because he simply thought slaves could do nothing endangering to the Roman Army. They were both indeed great leaders. Not all of their choices were wise, but the choices they made that were great, were the ones that we know them for. 2.
After minimal schooling, he traveled around Latin America and eventually ended up in England. He embraced the ideas of the Pan African Movement. These ideas were the groundwork for the organization he founded, the UNIA. He attracted working class blacks, who formed a devoted following of the man and his ideas. Both of these leaders, of course, were interested in the betterment of their race, but their different visions in achieving their goals led to a division that became both philosophical and intensely personal.
Another major point he makes in this speech is that blacks need to learn to put brains and skills to their occupations of life instead of just labor to achieve higher standing and success. In the 2nd reading from W.E.B Dubois Critiques on Booker T. Washington, Dubois believes more so in the fact that the black man needs to work on their economic status to earn respect and rise above instead of Washington’s idea of developing friendships with the whites before economically advancing. Dubois also disagrees with Washington’s idea of these relationships before economic prosperity because he feels that it is too soon to develop these close relationships between the whites and the blacks since slavery has been abolished so recently. He only believes that developing a higher standard and economic lifestyle would allow openings for these
In this essay I will share things that I found similar and different with these writings. In Martin Luther King’s, I Have a Dream speech he expresses, to many citizens, the need to end segregation and hostility towards the African American Race. He demandingly shares his ideas and reasoning of why this needs to take place. He states that all men need to come together and work towards equal liberties for all. “[…] all men—yes , black men as well as white men—would be guaranteed the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” (276).
He used some real African-American models and a real horse in his studio to sculpt in as much as he could to express what he wanted, and he succeed in what he was looking to accomplish. Augustus Saint-Gaudens shows how the soldiers and the colonel were dressed. When I looked at this work, he really shows the differences between the leader and the soldiers: their shoes, their clothes, what they were carrying. Firth of all, they all wear caps, long-sleeve shirts, and long pants. But the
The Double V campaign was very important as it was a symbol worn by black soldiers to show they supported victory against fascism at home and abroad. This proved important propaganda in showing the hypocritical nature of the United States, who portrayed much of the oppressive sentiment as the country they were fighting against. After 1945, the demand
