Civil Rights Movement In Education - 944 words
The Civil Rights movement, during the 1960s and 1970s, created many changes for both American society and its schools. The transformations were the result of such movements as Bilingual Education, womens rights activity, and the passing of the Public Law 94-142 legislation. The incorporation of these new laws and ideas into society all came with their own consequences. Each of them helped, in some way, to lessen the inequality of minority groups in America, like students whose primary language was not English, women, and handicapped children. They also faced opposition by certain groups, who did not feel that their inclusion in American life was necessary. Those fighting for the minorities, ...

Ys In The Hands Of An Ego Tripped Boy - 993 words
Little Toys in the Hands of an Ego Tripped god Well, let me introduce myself; my name is Chris Rodgers and as a child I was rather cleaver and many times extremely squirrelly. Because of that my childhood was even more interesting than most childrens. Many of the toys that characterized my essence when I was in the preteen years were the vintage models of the incredible G.I. Joes, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Matchbox Cars, and Cabbage Patch Dolls (and yes I did have names for them). Let me talk to you about these toys in a little detail so you can get an idea of why they characterized my childhood so much. As a child I was extremely ill from birth until around 4th grade.

An Account On Hiroshima - 1,096 words
My name is Tomataki Amuro. Fortunately, I'm one of the few survivors after the most terrible weapon, the Atomic Bomb, had dropped on the city of Hiroshima. It was a horrible piece of memory.

Remembering The Holocaust - 910 words
Six million Jews and millions of others, including Gypsies, Slavs, homosexuals, the mentally ill and the infirm were murdered by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945.

Auschwitz - 1,175 words
During the 1930s, the Nazis built concentration camps to imprison the parts of the population that they desired.

In Auschwitz, the most notorious death camp, approximately 1.5 million Jews were killed. In total about 6 million Jews lost their lives, although not all of those victims died in the death camps. Many died on their way to the camps or were shot for almost no reason at all. Some people sti ...

Reconstruction - 1,330 words
The Era of Reconstruction following the Civil War was a period marked by an intense struggle to restore a worn-out and devastated society. The war, which was aimed at confronting the national problem of slavery, only led to subsequent dilemmas over emancipation and an undefined condition of freedom. Some had naively believed that ending slavery would solve the problem of racial inequality, overlooking the prejudice and uninviting atmosphere towards blacks. Questions over how to reinstate a disloyal population with the fall of the Confederacy and restore a destroyed southern territory rang throughout the nation. Although the former slaves were undeniably freed, the foundations for a racial de ...

Due to these insufficiencies, the attack was a failure, which resulted in the brutal slaying of seventy rebel youths, and the subsequent jail and torture of the remaining rebels. Although the attack itself was a failure, it served an important purpose in catapulting Castro into the public eye as a potential leader. It also demonstrated how in all probability an armed struggle would be needed to bring Batista down. In his trial, Castro launched into a denunciation of the Batista regime, identifying the problems of Cuban society, and relating how Batista was responsible for them. He called ...
