Black history

  1. 1. Black history<br />Done by: Yuan Xinran Stanley 2P330<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Slavery<br />The Civil War<br />Jim Crow Laws<br />The Civil Rights Movement<br />Montgomery Bus Boycott and Scottsboro trials<br />Traits of a true Southern Belle and Southern Gentleman<br />Harper Lee<br />
  3. 3. Slavery<br />Were brought from all over the world, however most came from Africa<br />Most slave-holders from the Southern State were white<br />Were not allowed to read nor write, had to seek permission to leave the property and could not gather in groups for 4 or more<br />Begin as early as the olden Civilizations, resulted from<br />debt-slavery<br />punishment for crime<br />child abandonment<br />birth of slave children to slaves<br />enslavement of prisoners of war<br />
  4. 4. Slavery<br />In relation with To Kill A MockingBird<br />In slavery, slaves were discriminated and had to follow many rules which white people did not have to<br />In the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird”, Tom Robinson, the negro, had to go to jail because a white man had accused him of raping his daughter<br />This shows that slaves and Negros did not have equal rights. In the novel, even though the accusation was false, Tom Robinson still had to go to jail as he was dark-skinned and because a white man had sued him.<br />Slavery and the storyline of To Kill A MockingBird are very similar as they both talk about discrimination, thus I am able to understand the novel better <br />
  5. 5. The Civil War<br />Was the only war to be fought on American Soil<br />Southern States such as<br />Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Carolina, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kentucky, Virginia<br />Abraham Lincoln proclaimed war against the Confederate States of America, the South, to end slavery<br />Lasted from 1861 to 1865<br />
  6. 6. The Civil War<br />Causes of The Civil War<br />The South- Felt that Lincoln's presidency would affect their lives as they used slaves<br />The North- Objective was to end slavery and had elected the Republican Party which opposed to slavery<br />The United States of America Union won the Civil War<br />Abolished slavery as a legal institution in the United States<br />Both Civil Rights Movement and the novel are similar<br />Civil Rights Movement refers to giving everybody equal rights so that no race will be treated as the “lesser kind”<br />In the novel, Negros are discriminated as they are dark-skinned, thus when a white man falsely accuse Tom Robinson, a negro, of raping his daughter, he has to go to jail even though he did not commit the crime<br />
  7. 7. Jim Crow Laws<br />The origin of "Jim Crow" belongs to a song named "Jump Jim Crow“<br />Segregation between the Dark-Skinned and the White-Skinned<br />Blacks had to go to separate schools, use separate sections on buses, trains and restaurants<br />Whites felt that it was “separate but equal” treatment for the Blacks<br />The Blacks were angered as it went against everything they believed in as a race and were discriminated by the Whites<br />
  8. 8. Jim Crow Laws<br />Jim Crow laws surfaced in the novel.<br />Even though Tom Robinson was innocent and was wrongly accused of raping Bob Ewell’s daughter, he went to jail because he was Dark- Skinned. This shows that he was discriminated as he was black, which is similar to Jim Crow Laws<br />
  9. 9. The Civil Rights Movement<br />Occurred between 1955-1968<br />aimed at <br />outlawing racial discrimination against African Americans and restoring voting rights in Southern States Movement and to include racial dignity and freedom from oppression by white Americans<br />American President, John Kennedy, supported this movement<br />Led to equal rights for previously discriminated groups such as the Blacks<br />
  10. 10. The Civil Rights Movement<br />Gender equity issues<br />focused upon absolute rights such as allowing women to vote, changing social attitudes and economic, reproductive, and educational equality between the genders and addressed the rights of female minorities<br />Black Power<br />argued for black self-determination, and asserted that the assimilation inherent in integration robs Africans of their common heritage and dignity<br />It relates to the novel as Atticus stood up to defend Tom Robinson, a black man, in trial as Atticus knew he was innocent and was trying to prove that the accusation was false<br />
  11. 11. Montgomery Bus Boycott and Scottsboro trials<br />Montgomery Bus Boycott<br />Whites were biased in transports. Blacks were made to give up their seats to Whites even if they had a disability<br />Scottsboro trials<br />9 male teenagers were wrongly accused of rape in Alabama,1931<br />Both trials are similar as the Whites falsely accused 9 Black boys and Tom Robinson of raping, even when they were innocent<br />
  12. 12. Traits of a true Southern Belle and Southern Gentleman<br />Southern Belle<br />know how to cook, do needle work and have ballroom dancing skills<br />Southern Gentleman<br />Well-mannered, polite and respect others<br />Bob Ewell<br />Rude to everybody, violent and discriminated Blacks<br />Atticus<br />Polite to everyone, even when they call his family “nigger lovers”<br />
  13. 13. Harper Lee<br />Born on April 28, 1926 Alabama<br />Her only novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, won the 1960 Pulitzer Prize<br />Pursued a law degree at the University of Alabama from 1945 to 1949<br />Her characters in the novel are closely related to her friends, neighbours and family<br />
