Ever since my dad was a young boy he has wanted to visit all the National Parks in the United States. We’ve already been to The Grand Canyon in Arizona, The Badlands in South Dakota, Biscayne in Florida, Mesa Verde in Colorado, and many more! This time we were headed for Colorado where National Park, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, is located. I was really dreading this trip. I’d never heard of this park before and neither had my friends. All the other parks we’d been to have been really interesting and enjoyable, but Black Canyon of the Gunnison most likely won’t be.
In the novel, Du Bois thoroughly represents the struggles Black America went through after the Emancipation. After slavery came to a halt, daily life started to look a lot better. However, this wasn’t exactly the case. Right after the emancipation, a set of laws named the “Black Codes” contained rights for African Americans. However, some of those laws came with a catch. This social issue kept them from having the same rights as whites. Social problems
Du Bois gives an instruction that the black race should struggle to free themselves from the haze of the past and the present, and seek a brighter prospect by cooperating with white neighbors, which also reinforces the fact that unity is crucial to eliminate the color line. The apophasis he adds here has a thematic effect, calling attention to the importance of, not only education as he discusses in this whole chapter, but also the will to tear asunder the Veil that binds the striving spirit of black folk.

When thinking of a desert, one would think of a large, dry, and sandy area like the Sahara Desert. The Great Basin Desert is different because it is a cold desert. A cold desert is completely different from the typical desert with average temperatures of 55-57 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, and in winter it averages around 4 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold deserts will normally have much more water. Water is the lifeline of The Great Basin Desert (Pellant), which is a good thing and a bad thing. The term “basin” is used with the meaning no water from the ocean ever reaches this region (National Park Service). Water rights to the Great Basin Desert have been a problem for a long time and with the risk of water loss and risk of losing groundwater.
Throughout his entire book, Du Bois displays how individualism and freedom can be achieved in a multicultural society through the ability to generate media as he said, “ I know that these songs are the articulate message of the slave to the world. They tell us in these eager days that life was joyous to the black salve, careless and happy….They are the music of an unhappy people, of the children of disappointment; they tell of death and suffering and unvoiced longing toward a truer world, of misty wanderings and hidden ways” (Du Bois 1994:157). Therefore, Du Bois contends that if individuals recognize oppression and the oppressed are able to use their new platforms to express themselves, then freedom and individualism are actualized in society. In the modern context, Omi and Winant write that, “ The necessity to define characters in the briefest and most condensed manner has led to the perpetuation of racial caricatures, as racial stereotypes serve as shorthand for scriptwriters, directors and actors, in commercials, etc… Races do not emerge full-blown. They are the results of diverse historical practices and are continually subject to challenge over their
For this paper water structures and infrastructures were selected as focus points because the longer we wait to fix issues with them, the more expensive it will get, in other words, we are in a race against time. Studying the past it is easy to see how water availability made population explode in an area such as Southern California, where savvy marketing and great politics made it happen. Particularly, for Los Angeles and for the purposes of public narrative, Marc Reisner’s Cadillac Desert does a great job at understanding and identifying the politics and key figures in getting water to Los Angeles. Great hydrologic structures were created using both manpower and water politics. It is important to state that there are connections between water, politics, environment, and geography when analyzing what the biggest problems involving water structures and infrastructures (Reisner.) We must think of water as both a socio-political issue and a natural resource, whose fate is molded by the understanding of its connectivity to itself, man-made structures, geography, environment, and society. The classes taken in this program have taught us ideals that in order to become a great water resource manager, one must master the political and scientific knowledge to make decisions that are prosperous for society and the environment. Furthermore, one must know the United States’ hydrological history in order to gain manipulation upon the system that makes it both thrive and deteriorate.

The Grand Canyon, an immense monument of pure beauty, the distinct feature of an American desert, the timeline of the Earth’s history, and the Pormosa for García López de Cárdenas. Percy spoke of a Bostonian man that travelled to the canyon, but was never truly there. He didn’t have the same experience of the Spaniard centuries ago, (Percy 462-463). The Grand Canyon may have changed in form from the erosion and corrosion, yet he didn’t take the same actions of Cárdenas. The man knew about the canyon before even seeing it for the first time, due to previously seen postcards and pictures, he couldn’t have the full feeling of awe at the tremendous depth and vibrant colors in something that is just more than a big, long rock. The author continued on by stating, “At the

Du Bois and Washington both used figurative language to contribute to the responsiveness of the text and advance theri point of view . Du Bois point of view was black came up from nothing. DuBois explains the cause of “ Double Consciousness through the metaphor of the “ Veil or idea that end” “other black boys “ are perceived different from white Americans and are therefore excluded, or feel like “outcast and strangers “in America pg.3 The metaphor suggests that African Americans experience “double-consciousness because they are forced to analyze their worth as human beings based upon standards set by people who feel that they have little worth. Du Bois talks about the first time he realized that he is excluded from “ the other world” by sharing
Du Bois is concerned with three main ideas within his essay, those being beauty, art as propaganda and how African Americans and their art will be ultimately judged. Beauty, however, is not how you view something’s allure to Du Bois, but rather who is it that will describe what is classical and beautiful? Suggesting that African Americans fit this role perfectly, Du Bois states “pushed aside as we have been in America, there has come to us not only a certain distaste for the tawdry and flamboyant but a vision of what the world could be if it were really a beautiful world.” He is also interested in how Negro art will distinguish itself from the works of other non-black artists.
