“The Atlanta Compromise” is one of the most important speeches delivered in American History when it comes to relations between the African American and Southern White races. The speech was delivered by Booker T. Washington, a very famous, passionate orator for the Black community, who believed that the African American community should rise to equality with Whites gradually under the umbrella of segregation. Through this speech he embodied his beliefs of gradual equality, also known as gradualism. The speech gained praise from both races afterward and gave great reasoning used to help the issue of segregation both during Washington’s lifetime and after.
In our lifetime a lot of unusual things will happen, some good and some bad. My speech in particular is about one of the bad things that has happened in our parents, maybe even grandparents lifetimes. This case is frightening and disturbing, but the most shocking part is how he doesn’t remember what he did or how he did it. All he remembers is being taken into custody and an abnormal loss of teeth. My information is from “my life among the serial killers”, written by Helen Morrison, an interview from CBS news, and an article written by one of the detectives assigned to the case. In “my life among the serial killers”, Morrison tells about her time hypnotizing “Baby faced” Richard Macek and the horrifying story of what he did.
Would you think somebody murder was justified getting brutally killed in front of friends and family? The assassination of Malcolm X was unjust because he was a civil right leader he also was the leader for the nation and Islam. However other believed that he promoted violence.
“The Atlanta Exposition Speech” by Booker T. Washington, “The Talented Tenth” but W.E.B. DuBois, and “The Negro’s Place in American Life at the Present Day” by T. Thomas Fortune were written during the end of the nineteenth century when African Americans were faced with great challenges on a range of different levels. These documents are very like one another considering they are all addressing the same issues, but I also feel like each of them are unique from one another because of the person who wrote them. Washington focuses more on an industrial education so the blacks can go to school. He has the whites to believe that it will also affect them and make things better for them at the time and that they will

Robert Gray most definitely provokes thought and stirs emotion through an effective use of language and techniques used in his poems. One of his major messages are those connected with mans effect on the environment and our constant need to create something new and yet, forget about what we already have and where that ends up. Also the sense of our society almost becoming, un-Australian and very international.
Demagoguery is polarizing propaganda that motivates members of an ingroup to hate and scapegoat some outgroups. In the two speeches “Inaugural Address” by Governor George Wallace, and “Share Our Wealth” by Senator Huey Long, both use similar demagoguery strategies. The Governor of Alabama George Wallace gave speech while entering office, argued that Alabama deserves the “freedom” to stay segregated. As then Senator of Louisiana Huey Long gave his speech with a insight to get Americans out of the Great Depression his main argument was to share wealth throughout society to bring a fair well balanced society, that is a fair chance to life, liberty, and happiness. Claims that Wallace makes are, segregation should be kept forever, Alabama is an honorable state, and desegregation can be dangerous also a few claims that Long’s makes are; to care for the veterans of our wars, to limit poverty, and lastly to limit fortunes to a few million dollars.Wallace and Long share the same strategy of demagoguery as they both are seen though Nationalism meaning love for one’s nation. Wallace and Long also use fallacies as Wallace uses False Analogy while Long uses a different strategy which is Straw Man. Wallace and Long’s claims both represent demagoguery as they both have political leaders and seek to gain power by both using Nationalism. The effect the claims might have on the audience toward Long’s claim is the state will appreciate and continue to support long opposed to wealthy people might feel irritated as they losing money, and the effect on Wallace’s claims on the audience are mostly negative as because wallace wants Alabama to stay segregated.
In the two texts Texas vs. Johnson Majority Opinion by: William Brennan and American Flag Stands For Tolerance by: Ronald J. Allen they both started with the same cause but different point which I will cover in this paragraph. In both selections, it started from a guy named Gregory Lee Johnson burning the American flag. Also In both texts they both showed that flag burning was allowed but should not be tolerated. But in Brennan's text he uses a precious and careful tone “The way to preserve the flag’s special role is not to punish those who feel different about these matters. It is persuade them that they are wrong” Brennan,16. Where as in Allens text its more opinion based as expected “The American flag is cherished symbol of our national
March 7, 1965 is known as “Bloody Sunday”. The events that unfolded on that day in Selma, Alabama, will forever conjure images of relentless beatings, bullwhips, and tear gas in the minds of Americans (The Making Of LBJ’s Historic ‘We Shall Overcome’ Speech). African American citizens of the United States were facing a continued deadly threat at the hands of Southern Separatists and local officials, simply for the right to dutifully vote. What seems to prompt action by the United States government is the fact that these atrocities were now being viewed by the world, for all to see, on stark, black and white television screens. Many call Lyndon Baines Johnson’s “We Shall Overcome”

In class we were shown a recording of the speech, “A call to men”. The first thing I noticed was the title, which made me immediately assume it was going to be a female speaker that was going to speak about feminism; or something along those lines. To see a man giving the speech grabbed my attention instantly. The man giving the speech was Tony Porter, and his audience was mostly women, who made me think, “Is this guy going to be giving a speech about feminism?” While listening to his speech I felt guilty for being quick to judge, because his speech was actually about growing up as a male, and being masculine is today’s society. While Tony Porter was giving his speech, he brought up stories that without a doubt every guy in our class could relate to that left many of us saying, “Wow”.
I have a thought I want to share with you guys. I have a long held belief that some actors were born to play certain roles. Take Titanic for instance, what would it be without the lovely Leo Dicaprio? How about “Iron Man” as anyone other than Robert Downey Jr? Or if you prefer the classics, what would “The Godfather Saga” be without Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. So in the spirit of iconic actors and the roles they have made memorable, I would like to welcome you all to the lovely Johnny Sequoyah as Bo Adams in NBC’s new hit series “Believe”.
I hope that my speech has shed some light on the bulldog breed. Their history, unique features, and random facts, and I wish that you have all learnt something new about them today. Thankyou for you're time."

After the NFL he became a pastor, and soon stared giving motivational speeches for people all across the world. He has given a countless number of speeches but his “How Bad Do You Want Success” speech is what brought him great exposer.

The three main points he stressed throughout the speech were having heart, sacrifice, and dealing with pain. Although this speech was attended for the college students at Michigan State University, any person could listen to this speech and find motivation within them. As a current college student I find this speech very inspirational and motivating because I was able to relate to it, he was very passionate and emotional, and he kept it real.
