An hour after the moving van parked in the driveway of 406 Clybourne street in Clybourne Park the younger family waved at the van when it slowly moved away and they went inside when the van was out of view. The family worked together to put away their belongings and they stood hand and hand and they took a breath of fresh air. Beneatha went first to her room to put away her stuff then Ruth and Walter went next and Travis left to go hunt for his new room. They all left until Mama was left there alone looking out the big window. Mama gingerly stepped to the window and put her plant down smiling in thought. When the door bell rung she jumped and went to the door. At the door was a white woman and when the door opened and saw mama she flinched and said “Hello, I’m your neighbor it’s nice to meet you.” She said “I’m Susan it’s nice to meet you.” She said this slowly, deliberately like she’s talking to a foreign person and Susan put out her hand and mama did not reach for it her face was just a blank stare. Then after a while mama stammered “h-hello I’m Lena Younger its very nice to meet you.” And she reached out and shook Susan’s hand and Susan quickly took it away. Then she said “Well I just came to say,” Susan took mama’s shirt and pulled her face so close to mama’s that their noses were touching. “stay out of our way, we will stay out of your way if you stay out of ours.” She shoved mama into their brand new house and slammed the door so hard that
After a couple of hours, I decided to go home. As soon as I got there, there was a news truck pulled into my driveway. A tall lady with blonde hair and blue eyes asked me if she could give me and interview. "So what do have to say about the events that occurred today,"she asked." Well, I really am still trying to take all of this in," I said. "I never suspected this to happen, and I believe that we should be more prepared for if this should happen again." "It was less than a second, maybe half a second, but it changed
When singing up for “The New World” the soon to be colonists did not know what they were agreeing to. Perhaps there were thoughts of undeniable freedom that drove the group of Britains to this new land and away from their original rulers. Upon arrival the new colonists were bombarded with several new laws and policies that left them with their hands in their mouths. They had just gotten away from their cruel rulers, and now there are supposed to pay all this additional money to help them (“1773”)? No, what happened was that a group of radicals were formed instead and this group slowly formed a revolution. This collection of angry colonists was the root of to separation of the Colonies from Britain, and it all started with the Stamp
Americans are very curious about their history and how the United States was first formed. Although the Americans currently lack basic knowledge about what had happened in their past, they still have evidence about what may had happened to cause the things that are here today. Simple items such as books, tablets, oral stories, artworks, and genes could be evidence on what had happened in the past. David A.

When the Europeans first arrived in the North American continents, they found hundreds of tribes occupying a vast and rich land that was now called the new world. To what they had found in amazement that such a land filled of resources and native people they found to be amazing. They quickly started to recognized the wealth of the natural resources. What for they came her to find gold soon turned out to be riches in another form of way. Which now they had an opportunity to start a new life. However, they did not, so quick or willing to recognize the culture and the spiritual way of the people and intellectual riches of the people they called Indians.
From the vast uncharted lands of the New World to the innovations of the antebellum period onto the Civil War, a multitude of opportunities swelled as time progressed for various ethnicities during the time periods of America. During the colonial period, new land, resources and revolutionizing means of trading expanded potential for the Europeans. The revolutionary period offered a new meaning to opportunity to a different gender and race as many sought for the same rights and prospects as granted to that of the European men. Lastly the antebellum period, from 1815 to 1860, considerably magnified possibilities for various ethnicities and for men and women as innovation of technology further enhanced new possibilities for the American citizens. As time forged ahead, it is evident through the colonial, revolutionary and antebellum time periods presented new prospects emerged and others died off with the new period of America’s expansion.
Expansion to the new world was both a blessing and a curse to both Europeans and the natives of the new land. The first motive for exploring the new world to find a easier and faster way to trade with the Asian countries, but soon after two new continents were discovered it sprouted different motives from everyone. Even though everyone had their own ideas and dreams about the new world they were all ended up with a common goal, to find silver and gold and become very wealthy. Every country heard about and expected to find an unlimited amount of riches. What the Europeans weren’t expecting to find was thousands of different civilizations already living in this unexplored “new world”.
Europeans are known for trekking into western civilization or as they refer to as the “New World”, and take the land as their own. In some scenarios it is evident that the Europeans have proved to be beneficial to the inhabitants of the area, and help them economically. Venezuela, however can be regarded as the complete opposite. Spain saw Venezuela as an opportunity to make quick money due to the prominent pearl beds that lay off the coast of Venezuela and the myth of el dorado which ostensibly yields infinite riches. Nonetheless, the Spaniards took no consideration into the exploitation they caused when searching for riches and settling. This can be classified as quite the tragic story, but a select few individuals were able to muster enough courage to fight for their country.
Sometimes I feel as if I have invisible kites hooked to my body. As I speed down the road, they fan out behind me and to the sides. Kites that find cliffs, walls and corners not only possible but cleansing. Flying through them, all the dirt clogging their pores gets struck and left behind. All the solids that hold them down are knocked out in one breath, in one long swing of dizzy loops and wide flows.
“What did you guys do?” my mom asks shortly after stating how “wonderful” her weekend was.
Children of the New World: Acting out “The role of Algerian women in their own society has rarely been what it has seemed” (Heggoy 1). Prior to the Algerian war, women in Algerian society were under patriarchal rule and, under such rule, were expected to meet certain expectations. Among other rules and regulations, Algerian women were prohibited from being outside their home unaccompanied and were required to keep themselves heavily “veiled” at all times. They were not to question the authority of the Algerian men, especially the ones in their family. Despite these limitations, Algerian women found a place in the revolution. Although it sometimes meant defying their status quo as women in Algerian society, women used the resources and
In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the movements to explore the new world increased rapidly. Among them was the arrival of the early Europeans on Americas. Only in a few decades this arrival has changed the land and the people of the Americas both on the physical the non-physical outcomes.
By definition, a revolution is the overthrow of a suppressive government in favor of a new government, but it is also defined as a large change in society, or how it works. After the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus, European Nations competed in a race against one another to claim pieces of the new land. Before Columbus found this land, the sea separating the New World from Europe seemed endless. The Europeans were only interested in the land to the East. But with the New World there was so much to explore. The Europeans tossed aside their old toy to go play with a new one. During this time period of conquest throughout the New World it became known as the Age of Exploration. A New World meant more land, which meant places to build homes and plant crops, and more money to be earned by buying out new houses and selling new crops grown in foreign soil. These times of change are known as the American Revolution.
