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.

He knows the feeling of wanting to stay longer in bed in the morning. He also says that he can understand some of the students is nervous, when they start at a new school. He does all of this to come down on the same level as them, to make them understand that it is something he went through himself. In his speech he says that you have to work, to achieve the things you want and that you have to have an education to get a job. He means that the children in the school are the future of USA and if they quit the school, they quit the whole country “if you quit on school – you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.” He says that he understands that it is not always easy to keep up with the school, when ypu have problems at home or problems with yourself, but he also says that it is important to just keep working and do the best you can.
Even though one hundred dollars was still not enough, he accepted. At that time, Victor found Thomas Builds-the-Fire in the post office. The relationship between them is very subtle. They had grown up and played in the dirt together yet they have not talked to each other for years due to the fact that Thomas Builds-the-Fire was not welcome among Indians and they got into a fistfight when they were young. After Victor saw Thomas Builds-the-Fire, he immediately threw a question, “How did you know about my father’s dead?” Thomas Builds-the-Fire replied, “I heard it on the wind…” This is obviously an excuse.

At first I thought he wanted me to do it because he was a former Marine and wanted his son to follow in the same direction. I was only eighteen when he said I should talk to a Marine recruiter. I was still a punk and didn’t want to listen to him. But of course parents know best and he knew if I was to join any branch of the military it should be the Marine Corps. On a cloudy, cold day in April of 2007 I made the decision to talk to a recruiter for the Marines.
I remember that I loved how he looked in his uniform, the support that surrounded him, and I enjoyed the stories he told me when he went off to training of deployment. My mom, my sister, and I did not follow my father around like most military families would. My mother continued to work and my sister and I could finish school. In junior year of high school, I began to look deeper into what the military was about. I looked past the bells and whistles, such as the uniforms, shiny medals, the guns, the tanks, the war, the chanting, and the cadence.
The way I showed this dedication was to research every problem item that came across the office; make sure each and one of the young Airmen were busy with their assigned responsibilities. In time I start to get worn out and fatigue at the end of the day. My social life involved boxing, swimming and spending time with friends. These events cease to exist after 4 months of overwhelming myself.

Since he was mostly raised by his mother and older sister, his father sent him to Texas A&M university to ‘make a man’ out of him. Mills was not fond of this, but it influenced him and helped set his ideals and beliefs. While in college, C. Wright Mills was indoctrinated to life as a young freshman in a harsh manner. He routinely went through various ‘rough’ times and got beat up by not following the accepted ‘norms’ of the college student structure. (Grist, 2001) After much conflict with being
