American Songs Persuasive Speech

Satisfactory Essays
As time moved forward from the antebellum spirituals, more less hopeful songs surfaced. The tiredness of years and years of injustice set in on many, and inspired them to write songs that express that feeling. Many of these songs serve a purpose for protest too though, through pathos. Bringing up past instances of hatred and racism, and the tiredness of it now, will pull heartstrings and possible cause someone to act and fight for freedom and equality. From a place lacking hope and love, a powerful song is able to bring forth positive action. Because of this, older songs are powerful. They hold a memory of the past, and how much has change, and how much has got to change.
