One view pint from Booker T Washington was that African Americans should achieve equality by economic advancement. As shown in document 1 according to Booker T Washington African achieve equality by starting at the bottom and worked up and that earned the respect of whites . Washington wanted the good to show in all of black people. He believed that the blacks should work for themselves. Booker T. Washington asked the white people for help not equality.
Either way, it brought about the Emancipation Proclamation which gave black slaves their freedom. Abraham Lincoln certainly took literally the statement from the Declaration, “that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”? The American dream put in a nut shell All Men are Created Equal The Declaration of Independence also paved the way and created equality among all men and women. Today we can see the effects of the first sentence written in the Preamble: We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.”? Throughout history we have seen so many different changes, from freedom of slaves, to equality among men and women.
Throughout the speech, he used many techniques that make this speech so iconic. MLK used metaphors, emotive language, alliteration, repetition and many more. When MLK spoke, he spoke as a unit- ‘I am happy to join with you today’, ‘history of our nation.’, so everyone felt equal to him, and the audience when he spoke. King also repeated ‘we’ throughout the speech as an inclusive tone. This was a very powerful technique in order to get his point across in the opening line.
I think this was a smart move because the speech could comfort the citizens and make them realize that they should stand up and fight for themselves. Changing the Talk Card could change the overall message because different characters can make people easily experience the same feeling that Dr. King was experiencing and cheer the citizens up. I think the style of Dr. King’s speech is power because the whole speech was very inspiring and it represented a great power of his desperation towards freedom and justice. The main goal of Dr. Martin Luther King is to express how much the Negros want to have the same rights as white man. They could not stand for the discrimination and they were going fight for justice.
This provides the audience with a sense that King has a more pronounced ethos because he wants the same thing Lincoln wanted which makes the audience more willing to continue listening to him. Another allusion Martin Luther King Jr. makes is when he alludes to the Declaration of Independence by saying “This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The purpose of this allusion was so it could prove to the audience that even our founding fathers wanted everyone to be equal to each other, yet blacks still did not have equal rights. The final source Martin Luther King Jr. alludes to is Shakespeare’s play Richard III when Martin Luther King Jr. writes “This sweltering summer of the Negros legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating
The last section of the speech echo’s Stanton’s determination to change the normality’s at the time. I think that Stanton used the Declaration of Independence to connect women to the rest of the American population. At the time women were denied a majority of the rights that men white men were handed and in turn men and women were not connected. These similarities highlight the fact that women are American citizens just as men are. “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men and women are created equal,” (Stanton).
The actions of the African American people are overdue and very well planned as King had explained in the letter. Their quest was to force the white politicians to negotiate and actually heed the requests for desegregation. King does this all in a diplomatic, heartfelt and completely inoffensive voice. King effectively makes use of logos throughout his letter. He clarifies all of the reasons for his arguments and supports them well.
Martin believed that all types of people are to be given equal rights and that action must be taken in order for a peaceful society, he fought to urge change within his society for the inequality and injustice of African Americans. To achieve this, Martin uses a variety of techniques to create an emotional community which would urge change. One of the techniques used to express his beliefs was his physical voice that was full of rhythm, tone and dramatic pauses which connects with the audience. Inclusive language like "our" and "we" is used throughout the speech to unite the audience to fight for the same cause and to make discrimination a problem the audience had in common. Repetition of "I have a dream" in conjunction with a statement gives the audience an idea of Martin’s ideal world, " I have a dream that one day this nation will and live
That is, all races and genders share equal opportunities provided by the society. When we look back to the past, there is no doubt that African Americans faced the barrier of race, or color prejudice in the past; Chinese, and other Asian Americans were discriminated in the society, the workplace, the school, and the neighborhood. None of these should be surprising; they are parts of history. Meanwhile, Americans eliminate the problem, but the fact is segregation and discrimination is unavoidable in every society in the world. Because of segregation and the many different types of people in a society it forces people to find something that most have in common and soon enough they form a subculture, a social group within a national culture which has distinctive patterns of behavior and beliefs, Due to the extent of American culture there are many integrated but unique social subcultures within the United States The society or culture of the United
Rights and Freedoms Guaranteed to All American Citizens It is not contested that throughout America that the turning point in American history is when the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights were crested and applied to all the people of the United States of America. To understand the importance of the Bill of Rights, individuals should understand that a large number of United States citizens came from their home lands where the government of the homeland took control of its people and their property. Colonists did not want to be controlled anymore by England. Americans developed an "American Spirit" of sorts that understood the terrors of tyranny. The Bills of Rights were written to insure all people of the United States all of the freedoms in the Constitution.
