My Articles!

This is my article for 1986!


This article explains Dr. Martin Luther King and The Southern Christian Leaderships' (SCLC) plans for the Chicago Freedom Movement. This plan was initiated because of the thousands of Negros who were forced to live in the ghetto or slum environment. Dr. Martin Luther King's plan was to lead a demonstration which was against all things unfair to African American people. During this time Albert Raby who was the Coordinating Council fo Community Organizations asked the SCLC to join in and with the leadership of Jesse Jackson they were going to put an end to unfair housing practices towards African Americans. Along the way they encountered riots which resulted in violence because the African American's felt that they were singled out for so long. Frustrating as it was, Dr. King fought hard, he was even struck by a rock. In the long run it looked like his hard work had payed off. Mayor Daley negotiated with Dr. King and the housing boards and the reached an agreement to build public housing with height requirements along with some other restrictions. It also allowed Negros to be given mortgages irregardless of their race. However, in March, 1967 Dr. King's held a press conference which stated that the public agencies had went back on their word and that the housing agreement fell through. Although they made some progress it looked like they were back where they started. They would have to continue their fight for years to come.

This is my article for 1976!


Black History Month!
In February of 1976 the President Gerald Ford decided to make a contribution to African Americans by acknowledging their lives and culture. Which he thought was important.This would create Black History Month. However in did not become national until 1986. Black history month is now celebrated everywhere and every year, thanks to him!

This is my article for 1968.

This short article told us that the first African American had joined the Supreme Court. This mans name is Thurgood Marshall. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland on July 2nd 1908 and had died January 24th 1993. In 1930 he had applied to the University of MaryLand Law School. But he had gotten denied for being African American.But this horrible event turned out for the better. This had made him want to reach a better future and thats just what he did. In 1940, he had completed a winning for the Supreme Court. In 1954, he had won the case of the Brown v. BOE of Topeka. In 1967, he did it! He became the first African American in the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1991, that was when he had chose to retire. He had a really good life. He had accomplished many things.

With my design, I could make it a little less cluttered. All my things from 1986, then all my things from 1976, and all my things from 1966.

Knowledge- I think I was good with all my knowledge. I had decent summaries,and I stated had my links on my page.

Application- All my music was there and the summary. Maybe the album cover's would have been nice.

Presentation- To make the presentation better I should have read the whole thing out loud. Sometimes it sounds better when you read it out loud.Also, get a peer to read over it and make sure it is good.

I think I deserve a 95. I think i deserve a 95, because I have all the things that were required on moodle. I interviewed everyone and uploaded every song file.
