Do not make assumptions. Instead, assume the historical role of someone who lived in the United States during this period. Whatever you write should be in character. Be creative! Remember that everything you argue, although in character, must be grounded in academic research and must demonstrate you have done the required work.

New! SNCC Supporter

Fellow Black Americans,
I speak to you today in support of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Forgive me for my vulgarity but heed my words when I say the change we have been wanting since we were so called declared free people is still not here! The same people who claim to have our best interest at heart from their fancy suits and big paychecks they received built off the backs of our people. For those of you clouded by the judgement of why should you support us, let me address the elephant in the room. Two years ago was one day that showed our rage to this country, the Tumultuous Watts Riot was a day of not only rage and anger but it was the ONLY way we could have our voice heard by OUR people and not with the influence of non-black people. Since the SNCC started, we were along the platform of Non-Violence along with Dr. King but no more. How can these peaceful approaches that make you look like target practices possibly help our people. The Civil Rights Act was good on paper saying there would be no more discrimination but what happened last year when Samuel Young was murdered by that white man at the gas station. Discrimination was banned but he was murdered for using a “Whites” only bathroom (Rulska, 2011). I do support Dr. King and the advances he has been making but I cannot stand with the SCLC anymore, the March on Washington in 1963, was one of the best things I could see in this world but what do you think happened to every black person who was alone as they were going home (Cornelison & Yanak, 2004)? Ponder about that, you may think their non-aggressive movement will show results but when? The SNCC is demanding actual change but the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is asking, which basically means whenever you’re ready.
The SCLC wishes for the same thing as the SNCC desegregation. Myself and other leaders in the SNCC could see that violence would stir up in our youth because they didn’t have to face our struggles and they shouldn’t have to be punished because they weren’t born slave, or fully faced oppression like the rest or most of us. I commend the SCLC for encouraging our people to vote, for helping those who can’t help themselves but just because you heal a caged bird doesn’t make it free. The SNCC is willing to break out of the cage, are you (HSST222, 2013)

New! Week 6_ Debate_Robinson

This really was an interesting debate that we had this week and very knowledgeable as well.
Martin Luther King Jr. accepting the Nobel Peace Price Acceptance speech was an honor because I had never actually seen it. The civil rights movement is something that we will cherish forever as far as enforcing against discrimination on racial activities. Martin Luther King had a motive for freedom and justice in all aspects. He wanted equality amongst all races, no matter what color you were but especially African Americans. He spoke so heavily on young individuals having the right to vote but could not at the time. He stated “Why this prize is awarded to a movement.” I stick by and understand Dr. Martin Luther King Jr because he was strictly against violence and hate. “Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace. (Martin Luther King Jr.) It seems like he was speaking into existence what are world is going through today. He accepted his Nobel Peace pride with peace and dignity speaking upon Civil Rights,justice and faith above all. Racism and war was something he did not accept within the nations. He was not one for retaliation. He was a man who believed that things would get better including the young and the old in mankind. “We shall overcome.” (Dr. Martin Luther King).
I am Professor Youhuru Williams and I am an actual leader of Civil Rights.I believed that the North would be a place to escape from the South including Democratic parities. I am mentioning the black revolution on campus. Mr. Alex Kim spoke greatly on lives and education that mattered just like Martin Luther King Jr did as well. I support SCLC all the way although both movements are very powerful in their own ways.
