How did the economic situation for blacks change in the late twentieth century compared to the mid twentieth century?
African American history is essential than any other history. Especially for me, it births roots to my heritage. There are Africans American historians also descendants that paved ways from political, slavery, and social justice. However, I'm in my fifties now in a class to learn about black pioneering, scholars also their roles played. I'm black women that found African American history informative also interesting on each person involvements. Vital information on new also old African American history that I may pass down to my family and friends.

As mentioned in previous chapters the need to teach multiculturalism among young children. There are many misconceptions about multicultural teaching. For example, Bill Howe presents misconceptions about this theme and there were a few that were interesting such as, tour and detour approaches as appropriate in multicultural education. For example, Black history month is when many schools celebrate the accomplishments of African Americans. It is great to celebrate the accomplishments of the diverse population in the United States, but why celebrate it one a year. Maya Angelou once remarked that she will be glad when Black History Month is no longer necessary. When all Americans are sufficiently a part of our courses of study and daily instruction,
For what little history is taught about Africans institutionally and publically presently, it used as a tool to disempower people of African descent. To start present interpretations of African history denies the feats and accomplishments done by Africans as well as the roots from which all people come from. Presently history is made for people
The purpose of this paper is to inform readers about the importance of the celebration of African American History Month. There is a misconception about African American or Black History Month. Black History Month is the annual festivals that have been observed in the United States to recognize the achievements of African American Social Reformers, Civil Rights Activists, and other essentials people in Black History. This paper will focus on the reasons behind the celebration. I ponder the importance of celebrating African American History Month. I also contemplate on the main reason to celebrate the event in February.
The United States government should pay reparations to African Americans as a means of admitting their wrong-doing and making amends. The damages African Americans have sustained from White America’s policy of slavery have been agonizing and inhumane. Therefore, I am in favor of reparations for African Americans. The effect of slavery has been an enduring issue within the African American community. Many of us are cognizant of the harm racism brought to the African American race, conveyed through slavery, racial segregation and discrimination. African Americans suffered many atrocities, but the greatest damage done to them was the destruction of they’re original identity. African
African Americans have endured many trials and tribulations over the centuries. Our people have suffered from war, violence, and anguish simply because of the color of our skin. Our history has been so blatantly missing from textbooks and the K-12th grade educational atmosphere. Our educational system continues to neglect the history of our African American ancestors and fail to provide them with the educational resources to inform them of our past and allow them to learn about the true origins of our culture. We have made many significant contributions to the world but those have also been highly ignored as well.
African Americans throughout the road to gain racial equality exercised many methods in order to attain such liberties. We start our exploration by viewing the most paramount methods to acquire racial equality; these methods included lobbying public officials through the court system and through peaceful public protests. We'll lastly address the violent methods used to gain racial equality but see how they were mostly unavailing.
Through the years we have realized that the African American community has grown and developed. Our communities have come to live in harmony with one another. Although it took a long time for African Americans to get their say in society, they have come to show the world that they deserve their chance. We have learned that we need each other because it brings more color, music, and new ideas into our lives.
Some people may argue that “Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again?”( Horowitz) Unfortunately i disagree with this argument because African American had to face cruel punishment but
According to liverpool muesuems.org “before 1820, over 80% of the people arriving in the New World were enslaved Africans. It is estimated that 12 million enslaved Africans were transported to the Americas.” The french would go down to South Africa and trade with them but they would take enslaved african americans over to the Americas to get cotton and then they would take the goods back up to france. They enslaved African Americans to help work because they believed they worked harder and that they shouldn’t work. They believed that if they had people do work for them life would be easier.
In the news, the Le Moyne cafeteria, lectures I attend for class, in my classes, and numerous other settings, it seems that is unavoidable to discuss race, immigration, homophobia, United States borders, and Muslims wherever I am. The news is continuously discussing whether or not Muslims should be feared, how they are profiled physically as, and which body of people they are. Far after the African American Civil Rights Movement we are still discussing discrimination against African American, although African Americans are no longer fighting for equal rights, they are still fighting for equal treatment. The LGBTQ community in America is still discriminated against despite some strides of progression. Our world seems to be full of hatred with
The most surprising information that I discovered in the article was the fact that African Americans appreciate their heritage more than Africans do. It is really awkward that African Americans are more proud than the Africans are. African Americans take racism more serious than Africans and that’s really because they love who they are, and are also proud Americans, so African Americans are proud because as in today we have seen a lot of free citizens that have become lawyer, doctors, and the musicians that’s what makes African Americans to be proud of their country.

African Americans have been through so much since being uprooted from their home in Africa. Most people do not understand what happened to African Americans and they understand what they had to go through to be where they are today. It went from being kings in the comfort of their home to being thrown on a boat packed like sardines to be forced to work in the fields. The trip was a massacre itself because many did not make it due to the treatment from others. African Americans have always been treated like outsiders and it took many people to sway the perception of others to be where they are today. Through all the ups and downs African Americans persevered and made it out the struggle. African Americans has always been treated badly all groups of people and they always looked down on African Americans. Throughout the history involving African American, it showed the constant inferiority treatment. African Americans were slaves years ago, people still look at blacks as less important than other people. Slavery has a huge impact on our society today because people are still bias and unfair towards African Americans, most African Americans are still living in poverty and don’t have proper education beyond high school which is why they don’t have the equal opportunity for jobs. African Americans still continue to sit in the shadow behind white people.
