Selma Reflection

Blacks were unfairly persecuted in by white communities and their struggles in the civil right movement, but there were Whites that stood alongside Blacks to help establish equality. The director, Ava DuVernay, did an outstanding job highlighting major roles of background heroes that was right beside Dr. King. Annie Lee Cooper, whose determination to have her voice heard by voting was like none other. She would continuously go to the voting office and get questions that nobody would possibly know, which led to her rejection every time. The most gut wrenching part of the film is when Jimmie Lee Jackson was shot and killed in a diner after trying to disguise his family after a protest. That was truly a realistic moment to me because I could see myself doing the same trying to protect my parents from the malicious troopers. I am glad that I did not have this problem growing up and I have yet to come across racism in my almost twenty-one years of living. I am not sure if I would have survived back then because, I would have been too stubborn. One of the problems still today is all people getting together for what is right. It was more than showing the importance of people’s rights, it showed all people who came together for a common cause. I have always appreciated my right to vote and wish I could last semester, but after watching Selma, it has reached a new level. I should not miss another opportunity to vote because, this is what Blacks have fought for. Without their acts of courage and determination, who knows where our progress would be in society. Selma had won an Oscar, but it had only won for “Best Original Song”. It deserved more credit than that. Fifty years sounds like it was forever ago, but it really…...

The Broken Wings

...when love opened my eyes with its magic rays and touched my spirit for the first time with its fiery fingers, and Selma Karamy was the first woman who awakened my spirit with her beauty and led me into the garden of high affection, where days pass like dreams and nights like weddings. Selma Karamy was the one who taught me to worship beauty by the example of her own beauty and revealed to me the secret of love by her affection; se was the one who first sang to me the poetry of real life. Every young man remembers his first love and tries to recapture that strange hour, the memory of which changes his deepest feeling and makes him so happy in spite of all the bitterness of its mystery. In every young man's life there is a "Selma" who appears to him suddenly while in the spring of life and transforms his solitude into happy moments and fills the silence of his nights with music. I was deeply engrossed in thought and contemplation and seeking to understand the meaning of nature and the revelation of books and scriptures when I heard LOVE whispered into my ears through Selma's lips. My life was a coma, empty like that of Adam's in Paradise, when I saw Selma standing before me like a column of light. She was the Eve of my heart who filled it with secrets and wonders and made me understand the meaning of life. The first Eve led Adam out of Paradise by her own will, while Selma made me enter willingly into the paradise of pure love and virtue by her sweetness and love; but what......

Selma

...In early 1965, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) made Selma, Alabama, the focus of its efforts to register black voters in the South. That March, protesters attempting to march from Selma to the state capital of Montgomery were met with violent resistance by state and local authorities. As the world watched, the protesters (under the protection of federalized National Guard troops) finally achieved their goal, walking around the clock for three days to reach Montgomery. The historic march, and King’s participation in it, greatly helped raise awareness of the difficulty faced by black voters in the South, and the need for a Voting Rights Act, passed later that year.Even after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbade discrimination in voting on the basis of race, efforts by civil rights organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Council (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) to register black voters met with fierce resistance in southern states such as Alabama. In early 1965, Martin Luther King Jr. and SCLC decided to make Selma, located in Dallas County, Alabama, the focus of a voter registration campaign. Alabama Governor George Wallace was a notorious opponent of desegregation, and the local county sheriff in Dallas County had led a steadfast opposition to black voter registration drives. As a result, only 2 percent of Selma’s eligible black voters (300 out of 15,000) had managed to register.King had......

Selma: the Movie Review

...and David Oyelowo have acted together in a movie, they worked together in the movie called The Butler. The movie’s director, Avu Duvernay told the story of the people in Selma who wished to register to vote at the court in a manner which made one feel as if one was there. As if this was a documented account of what had transpired rather than a movie of what transpired in Selma. The music, costume and dialect used in the film gave it authenticity. This substantiated by its nomination for Best Picture for Academy Awards and vice versa. The movie has similarities in our struggle for democracy as South African. In South Africa we were also discriminated against because of the colour of our skin and black people were not allowed to vote. I was emotional with the bombing in the beginning but it tied into the story later on as it was not just shown to show the attacks on blacks during this time but it had a purpose. The movie co-produced by the Plan B production company who has produced movies such as The Pursuit of Happyness and Oprah Winfrey who has produced movies such as The Butler, both telling stories of overcoming adversity. In life we need inspiration as we face daily struggles in our pursuit for equality in life. This movie reminded me that there is light at the end of that tunnel. Go watch Selma and be inspired by the story of perseverance....

Martin Luther King

...How Far Do You Agree That Martin Luther King Was The Most Significant Black Civil Rights Leader In 1955-74? I agree that Martin Luther King was one of the most significant civil rights leaders, but he wasn’t the only and most significant leader during 1955—1974. Martin Luther King was very significant in the battle of racism and segregation during 1955-1974, he helped to bring forward some of the most important laws and was one of the first leaders to lead in peace. King was significant because of his non-violent ways, which help to set the tone to his movement of causes. This was particularly highlighted in the ‘voting rights march’ in Selma Alabama, due to the brutal attacks against the blacks, King helped bring coverage to the white Americans who were oblivious to the way that the blacks where treated and this caused an increase of support from the white Americans, who praised King for his non-violent ways. King was also significant in the Montgomery Bus Boycott in 1955, where King showed his support for Rosa Parks by leading a boycott of the bus system where blacks where not allowed to sit at the front of the bus and were made to give up their seats to white Americans if needed. King persuaded the community to avoid the buses until the rules were changed, ultimately, after King and his followers were sent to jail, the boycott did succeed, and the unfair, racist law allowing the segregation aboard the buses was changed. This was a straight-out success for the civil......

Civil Rights

...finally gave African Americans the freedom to vote. The Selma to Montgomery March and the March on Washington were two of the most significant and publicized events that provided the impetus for the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Selma was a highly segregated, but small, city in Alabama. Only about 300 of Selma's 1,500 African Americans were registered to vote; that’s only 3%. The SNCC tried to work with their local black leaders to register more blacks to vote. But the fact that Selma’s sheriff was a very racist white man wasn’t the most optimal (CRM 1). When activists arrived in Selma they instantly met resistance from Sheriff Clark, “He initially arrested sixty-seven black people attempting to register to vote...deputies arrested one hundred sixty-five protesters and then chased them out of town with electric cattle prods” (CRM 2). The big breaking point for civil rights activists in Selma was the fatal shot from police that killed young demonstrator Jimmy Lee Jackson (Englebert 103). All of these awful factors are why Selma got chosen to have the march. Even though it took several attempts to complete the Selma to Montgomery March, it was a substantial step towards getting the Voting Rights Act being passed. The first Selma to Montgomery attempt was Sunday, March 7,1965; it was also known as Bloody Sunday. Hosea William, SCLC leader, and John Lewis, SNCC chairman, led the crowd of more than 500 people out of Selma to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge (CRM 2). Since......

It will identify the key stakeholders that will be involved and the impact on the operational/ethical issues on the stakeholders. It will also identify and summarize the key ethical issues in the situation and there will be an ethical perspective applied to each along with my opinion as to what aspects of the situation would demonstrate ethically sound behavior and which would illustrate unethical behavior. Finally it will discuss the cost and benefits of the action that I think should be taken, based on the two ethical perspectives that were discussed. Jon recently found out that Selma has been taking money without ringing up the sale. She has been using the money as incentives or bonuses for her employees. This is agiants the company’s conduct policy as she is stealing from the company and causes some serious issues for Jon because he is up for a promotion. If the higher ups were to find this out would raise questions as to Jon’s qualifications for a senior-level position with the company. In addition to Selma taking the unrecorded sales, Selma’s store is the best one in Jon’s division and it is number two in the company. The key stakeholders that will be affected by these issues are Selma, as she could get fired, Jon, as he could get fired as well, the restaurant itself, as it is losing monies because Selma is not recording all that the store is earning, and the company, if this......

Civil Rights Diary

...The Selma to Montgomery marches was three marches in 1965 that marked the political and emotional peak of the American civil rights movement. They grew out of the voting rights movement in Selma, Alabama, launched by local African-Americans who formed the Dallas County Voters League (DCVL). In 1963, the DCVL and organizers from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) began voter-registration work. When white resistance to Black voter registration proved intractable, the DCVL requested the assistance of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, who brought many prominent civil rights and civic leaders to support voting rights. Planning the First March With civil rights activity blocked by Judge Hare's injunction, the DCVL requested the assistance of King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). Three of SCLC's main organizers— Director of Direct Action and Nonviolent Education James Bevel, Diane Nash, and James Orange— had been working on Bevel's Alabama Voting Rights Project since late 1963, a project which King and the executive board of SCLC had not joined. When SCLC officially accepted Amelia Boynton's invitation to bring their organization to Selma, Bevel, Nash, Orange and others in SCLC began working in Selma in December 1964. They also worked in the surrounding counties along with the SNCC staff that had been active there since early 1963. The Selma Voting Rights Movement officially started on January 2,......
