May Peace or Not to be in Freedom
Fighting for freedom has been demonstrated throughout centuries. A common saying, “Fighting is never the answer,” describes that people believe nonviolence is the best solution for demanding independence. However, several people disagree and conclude that “It’s better to fight for something than live for nothing.” These words from George S. Patton explains that dying for a good cause by fighting is worth it than living without making a difference. Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Ahdaf Soueif explores the idea that freedom must be demanded through either peaceful or violent protest.
Freedom could be ordered with aggressiveness. In …show more content…
From the speech “I Have A Dream,” Martin Luther King addresses the audience to unite with dignity and serenity: “We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence...we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force” (King 49). King’s goal for his audience is to will rise up together in a nonviolent protest and demand equality with the whites. Even though some African Americans might want to seek revenge towards the whites, King encourages them to stay soulful because violence would just make matters worse. Additionally, Martin Luther King also proclaims “Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today….their destiny is tied with our destiny.We cannot walk alone” (King 49). In contrast of Malcolm X, King proposes that African Americans must not dislike nor hurt the whites, but work together with them in order to gain liberty for all. Without the whites’ assistance, it would be difficult for African Americans to let their voices be heard because many people had racial discrimination towards African Americans back then, and they were seen as a lower class than the whites. Therefore, Martin Luther King used his voice to encourage not only African Americans but whites to come together in harmony for the struggle of …show more content…

Mr. Williams gave me a tour of the facility. The repository is located on the fifth floor of a beautiful new building which is an addition to the library. It is a 140,000 square foot building with many new amenities for the students. The fifth floor also holds the library’s historical collections, a state of the art archival storage and also houses a special area for archival preservation. I was also able to take a look at the beautiful rare books collection, which are set up in glass door bookcases, inside a meeting room where

The New York Metropolitan Museum offers a vast variety of virtual tours which includes artistic exhibits from historic Europe. In addition to the multitude of current exhibits, the museum offers to the public for free, access to previous exhibits. The exhibit chosen for the tour, “Drawings and Prints: Selections from the Permanent Collection”, was presented from April 12 through July 18, 2016. The collection highlights not only American but also European prints, drawings, and books containing illustrations. Most of the art was available for viewing, and were displayed in the Robert Wood Johnson Jr. Gallery, ranging from the Renaissance to the present. While some pieces were not on view during the exhibit,
Heirlooms, typically only valued by the family who holds them, can also spark a natural curiosity in historians and collectors. Vicky Eisenhut, the great-granddaughter of Bernard Rasche, has owned a horn table for approximately 38 years. Although Vicky’s table does not have famous value and little financial worth, the complicated journey through generations holds merit in itself. Furthermore, even more interestingly she obtained the table through sheer luck. The horn table, not only an important part of the family’s history, also represents a unique part of American history. Horn furniture, both gaining and losing popularity through the years, now holds a special value because of the uniqueness of the pieces whether made by famous crafters,
Special Collections have a reputation of being closed off or exclusive. While everyone who works at one would like to think that their institution is the one exception, that is not always the case. The only way to battle this perception is to come up with new and innovative ways for outreach. In an article by Daniel Traister, he discusses what it means for Special Collections to have exclusivity versus openness. When not reaching out to new audiences, Special Collections only perpetuate that exclusive reputation. “Managers of such collections must seek innovative ways of increasing their functionality or expect to see these collections cease to exist” (Traister, 55). These types of outreach could be from new exhibits, programs, and even blogs
Recent acquisitions have greatly expanded the archives' core collections particularly for mid- to late twentieth century practice. The Archive has cataloged records of 120 firms, and its collections also include 25,000 photographs and photographic negatives; large holdings of eighteenth and nineteenth century surveys and maps of New Orleans; Sanborn atlases for Louisiana and Mississippi; records of New Orleans preservation organizations and of the American Institute of Architects New Orleans chapter; and an architectural reference library including significant holdings in landscape and garden design and trade catalogs.
Sender never thought of his collection as a museum worthy exhibit until he was approached and asked if several of his pieces could be borrowed. So he built a website to arrange the lending. He never knew that his hobby of collecting would show a diverse portrait of the recent developments of art history spanning the three decades he has been collecting. He bought work that he was ardent about and the gallery of works just expanded.
We've prepared Pre-Columbian collections for key publications and exhibitions in both the United States and Europe. In addition, our direct experience with Chinese and Middle Eastern art, along with that from numerous other countries and indigenous cultures, allows people to have confidence in our ability to restore objects from those lands. As a result of our extensive knowledge, we have restored more Pre-Columbian art in our studio than in any major museum in America.

The Pasadena Public Library Collection Analysis and Recommendations is a collection development team paper that was completed during the collection and development class. For this assignment, I was the project leader. In the beginning of the document process, the team consisted of Krystin Mast, Martin Ndirangu, Ke’aura Lawson, and myself.

The description given to National Geographic 1909-1914 tag # 001013 by John Freyer doesn’t conform to any of the norms that are usually seen when describing objects for sale. He doesn’t mention the quality of the spine, where the ink has chipped off, or how the corners of the paper have been frayed and bent in the century or so that these magazines have been around. He instead says how he was working a temp at the Saratoga Public Library in 1995. He tells of how when the library moved they left twelve cases of National Geographic magazines behind, how he saved these three issues from the bottom of the stack. Two of the three paragraphs are for the most part, objective. This is where the majority of the actual description comes from. The middle
