  • Secrets Of Voodoo - 788 words
    The Yoruba, one of Sub-Saharan Africas most populous groups, sixteen million strong, live in the Republic of Nigeria. They are heirs to an ancient culture exceptional for its urban density, refinement and complexity. When forced migration took Yoruba peoples to the plantations of Cuba, Brazil and Haiti, they recombined their deities into a new pantheon and incorporated Catholic saints whose powers and histories seemed parallel. For example, some representations of the Virgin Mary were equated with the sweet and gentle aspect of Oshun, the goddess of love. In Cuba, Shango, the Yoruba thunder god, was frequently associated with martyred Saint Barbara, because her assassins were struck dead by ...

  • Jimi Hendrix - 1,690 words
    On November 27, 1942, Jimi Hendrix was born as John Allen Hendrix in Washington at Seattle General Hospital. His childhood was not a privileged one, however, he did indulge himself in one particular way: Jimi loved to play the guitar. At first he played an old acoustic, and later a cheap Silvertone electric, which were both strung for a lefty on a right-handed guitar, one of the defining Hendrix traits (Murray 34- 5) . As a teenager, young Jimi listened to the music which affected his music so greatly later: everyone from Buddy Holly to Muddy Waters and through Chuck Berry way back to Eddie Cochrane (Wilmer 38). He played in a few bands in high school, but then dropped out before his senior ...

The next album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience was titled Electric Ladyland, which Hendrix said was a reference to ...groupies, but I prefer the term Electric Ladies. My whole Electric Ladyland album is about them (Fairchild, Electric Ladyland 5). Some of the songs on Electric Ladyland, such as Crosstown Traffic and the cover of Bob Dylans song All Along the Watchtower, mark a departure from the Jimi Hendrix established by Axis: Bold As Love. Crosstown Traffic is more along the vein of songs included in Are You Experienced? and Hendrix was frustrated that it was released as a single. See, that LP was in certain ...

  • What Is The Greatest Benefit Of Being A United States Citizen - 581 words
    The greatest benefit of being a United States citizen is the freedom that American citizens have that the Constitution of the United States guarantees.

  • Haiti The Republic - 1,944 words
    A tiny tropical island sits in the Caribbean, decorated with palm trees and colorful hibiscus flowers. Its mountains stand majestically looking down upon sandy beaches and green valleys. From a distance it appears as any other island you might encounter sailing the waters of the Caribbean. Yet, as you come closer you notice a difference. There are no tourist resorts dotting the coasts, no high rise hotels with sand volleyball courts and marimba bands. This is Haiti, this is different. If the land could speak it would tell of tragedy and violence, of abuse and bloodshed, of power and greed. Why does the country stand apart from its neighbors? The answer lies in the turbulent history of this t ...

  • Same Race Different Faces - 1,101 words
    "Black vs. White" is not a story only seen in the United States of America. It is a problem which has, and still continues to plague many sections of the world. This problem, in many instances, goes beyond a stereotypical belief that the battle is fought due to cultural differences. What does this mean? Factors which unite such as religion, culture, and political beliefs, play no actual part in unity in this scenario. Cultural differences do play a certain part, but does not take 'center stage.' Now, what happens when you add a third "color" in there? In the United States people of color are many times classified as a group, minorities. In other countries, colors play parts rather than a str ...

The other 25 percent cried when encountering a person of different color or went towards a person of the same color. Unfortunately, traditions not only pass down the beauty and excitement of old stories, discoveries and love, but this package also comes complete with a 'life time supply ignorance.' The beliefs that exist today had to have come from somewhere. A grim reality is that this does affect more than just feelings, but self esteem, and performance as well.

    The use of hallucinogenic plants dates back thousands of years. Over the years, many different cultures and civilizations have used them for different purposes. The common belief that similarities exist between cultures that rely upon the use of herbal hallucinogens is greatly exaggerated. The cultural variables between these cultures are often so significant that the only major similarity between them is the fact that they use hallucinogens. The common generalization by society that every culture that uses hallucinogens must be similar can be proven false by comparing the Australian Aborigines and the Navaho Peyote Cult. Before the two cultures and their use of hallucinogenic plants can be ...

She fought off the Spanish from 1620 to approximately the 1660's. In 1938 James completed the manuscript of his most important work, The Black Jacobins.

    Why did Miller Change events in The Crucible The Crucible is a book written by Arthur Miller in the 1950s and is about the Salem Witch Trials. Although there were many differences between The Crucible and the actual witch trials Miller had good reason for making the changes for the book. Some of the things Miller changed to get the reader to side with the people on trial. Abigail Williams and John Proctors ages were changed. Abigail Williams age to 17 even though the real girl was only 11, but he never mentioned that John Proctor was 60( Burns 2) He changed the ages so people would not think Proctor was so bad even though he did have an affair.

    For my week posing as professor for music history 10, I would like to discuss the meaning of and history leading up to the mid 90s ska selection by Less Than Jake: Sugar in Your Gas Tank. Sugar in Your Gas Tank was released on Less Than Jakes 1996 album on Capitol records: Losing Streak. Although they had actually had many previous releases on independent labels, this was Less than Jakes first major label record. Previously only having an underground Indy following, being picked up by a major label and getting radio play made their audience grow exponentially. They have since released another album on Capitol which has also had a fair amount of success. I would like to make the claim that Le ...

  • Why I Work At Mcdonlads - 555 words
    It was good to hear from you again. I am glad that all is going well in England, but as you know, this area and much of New England has been plagued by witch hunts and trials during the past few years. In your previous letter, you asked how such an atrocity could occur, allowing many innocent women, children, and dogs to be accused and later hung at the gallows or pressed to death. Now, although many have speculated that this persecution was created and planted into our society by Samuel Parris, the minister at the local church, I have other ideas from which I believe the harassment may have come. In my opinion, the Salem witch trials were caused by an age related rebellion between young peo ...
