Maud Martha Gwendolyn Brooks was a black poet from Kansas who wrote in the early twentieth century. She was the first black woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize. Her writings deal mostly with the black experience growing up in inner Chicago. This is the case with one of her more famous works, Maud Martha. Maud Martha is a story that illustrates the many issues that a young black girl faces while growing up in a ‘white, male driven’ society. One aspect of Martha that is strongly emphasized on the book is her low self-image and lack of self-esteem. Martha feels that she is inferior for several reasons, but it is mainly the social pressures that she faces and her own blackness that contribute to these feelings of inferiority. It is
Throughout Topadhewin: The Gladys Cooks Story, Gladys talks about her residential school experience and how it changed her entire life. I previously knew a lot about the topic on the residential school system in Canada, and how it impacted many people. I realized that actually hearing someone telling their story on this issue makes it much more horrifying than the information found on the internet. From my understanding, this movie is to educate and acknowledge the survivors of residential schools. Many people make many negative stereotypes towards Indigenous peoples which is not always true. To understand Indigenous peoples of Canada you must understand the horrifying events that the government put them through and their reasons for doing it.

The winter formal was approaching fast like dark clouds before the rain hits. Frustrated, I slammed the phone down on the phone receiver. Looks like my make-shift girlfriend couldn't go to the dance because her dad said I just wanted to score. To make sure we had no off-campus interactions, he was going to make her go to family night at Shakey's Pizza that day.

When I first met this woman, she instantly changed my life without me even knowing it at the time because of her life experiences, which spoke volumes to me. She did not have much family support didn’t rely on anyone, she was very strong willed, driven, and had a lasting effect on people’s lives when she talked about her story. The woman I am speaking of is Lois G. Taylor. She have traveled all around the world, marched during the civil rights movement, and battled with various health issues most of her last years of living. I took care of this woman during the final stage of her health because of my profession as a nursing assistant and I truly loved her, she was a second grandmother to me, and I was a daughter to her.

Nobody could ever replace the kind hearted women, who cared and put a smile on every single soul in this town. Tessie Hutchinson, caring about everybody in this town, was
Samantha has grown up with her clean, orderly mother who has always told what was right and wrong. She is expected to get good grades and get into a good college with scholarships and awards. She has been taught to be organized and clean just like her mother and to stay away from anything of the opposite, the Garrett’s. However, when Sam began hanging around the Garrett’s and meeting each one of them, she realized how different their family is from hers, besides being less clean and organized. They were full of love for each other and showed lots of interest in one another. They are always there for each other and help one another with school work or problems they may have. Samantha realizes she can’t remember the last time her mother has helped her with any problems unless it was related to what college she will go to or her future career. Samantha realizes she can’t have her mother find out how close she has gotten with the

Kiki had just told her mom that she was in a relationship. Kiki told me earlier that her mother seemed a bit shocked that I was a woman, but overall her mom just seemed happy for her. My mom’s reaction was the same way, which was understandable, considering that my last relationship was with a guy, much like the guy who was trying much too hard at the pregnancy center booth, full of himself and couldn’t take a hint.
