What did Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association advocate? A. return of African Americans to their homeland B. cultural integration of black and white Americans C. cultural pluralism in American society D. reduction of racial tension through anti-lynching campaigns E. universal education for the African-American community
When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” Which words in the passage support King’s purpose of making listeners believe that they deserve equality? Check all that apply. “architects” “magnificent” “heir” “promise” “guaranteed” “concerned”
Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.
“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”
A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.
Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.
That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!
Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:
Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”
Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.
This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.
I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.
Hope this helps 🙂
C) A certain cool-headedness had come to him
E) [D]oggedly he swam in that direction, swimming with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength
Both of these sentences show that Rainsford can easily handle stress. The first sentence says that he was overcome by “cool-headedness”. In the second stanza the speaker uses words like “doggedly, slow, deliberate and conserving his strength.” In all of these instances Rainsford was in danger,; however, he was able to keep calm and think clearly about what he should do next.
