The Butler has a lot of unique symbolism and is during the time of man life events such as the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War. In this one scene their is a part where the butlers are helping set the table, serve the food, whereas the more younger African Americans are doing their infamous sit in where they go to a restaurant and sit in the all white zone and ask to be served while enduring vicious attacks mentally and physically. Reflection: The Butler had a lot of symbolism because it is protaying about what they would go through just to fit in the system and just to belong. Many didn’t want too just be another part of society or the outcast. The Butler (2013).” IMDb, IMDb.com, m.imdb.com/title/tt1327773/.
Summary and Reflection: This Martin Luther King speech was told after the final fight for equality and justice, right after that he decided to make a speech about their victory and this speech has been the all time most famous one during the civil rights. After five years they have done the impossible they have desegregated the south after getting abused and ran out and have made it a place for all. Reflection: After being brutally beat and assaulted in every way possible, justice was finally served. There was no more segregation in the south and many were trying to accept that. What Martin Luther King JR did i don’t think can be done by anyone else this icon showed that no violence can get you what you want and for that, he will always be respected in every way. https://www.archives.gov/files/press/exhibits/dream-speech.pdf
In the photo you can see that there is a black man getting attacked by dogs and holding the dogs are our so call “ cops” I say so call because the meaning for them is to protect and serve instead they are protecting themselves from harmless humans that are just protesting which is their right and he is being punished for it. The look on his face shows it all, he isn’t showing any emotion because he is use to this kind of behavior which is very sad. Reflection: During this time there were many photographs like this one that showed the lives that the blacks would go through on a daily basis in america, and how people wouldn’t do anything about it but look and be speechless, no one wanted to help because everyone treated them like the enemy and many will always continue to view them as the enemy which is flat out wrong. “10 Essential Civil Rights Movement Photographers.” Flavorwire, Flavorwire, 16 Jan. 2012, flavorwire.com/249320/10-essential-civil-rights-movement-photographers.
We have came a long way from segregation, over the years it has improved and changed in many way, however some people still have that mindset that not everyone deserves equal rights and that’s not okay. As long as people have this in their head, the world won’t function right and our society will get worse and worse until we realize what is needed to be done. Reflection: Talking about the 2006 voting right when more and more African Americans were making their voices heard and were starting to get more and more rights as years would pass by.

Starting with the small protest and the bus boycotting to emit till getting killed for flurrying with a white girl to the final March on Washington with everything and all hard work leading up to what we have now supposedly “Equal rights for all” . Although it doesn’t feel like it now, that was the ultimate goal. Reflection: My opinion about the article is mad / relieved and mad again. I’m mad because it took 5 years for arrogant people to realize that everyone deserves to have rights and many still didn’t want them to have rights. Modern day there are also still people that feel this way and because of that, there is a lot of hate in his world. “Articles and Essays - Civil Rights History Project | Digital Collections | Library of Congress.”Apple Computers: This Month in Business History (Business Reference Services, Library of Congress), Victor, www.loc.gov/collections/civil-rights-history-project/articles-and-essays/.
