"William Lloyd Garrison: the Agitator" - Slavery has always been a controversial and debatable issue in the United States. No one attacked the African-American slavery of the southern states with greater vehemence than a group of young, radical abolitionists.

Anti-Slavery Issue and Children's Magazines: 1820-1860 - Anti-Slavery Issue and Children's Magazines: 1820-1860  By the 1820’s the issue of slavery in the southern states had become fraught with controversy. It was by no means a clear-cut difference between Northern and Southern states; many Southerners were against it and many Northerners tolerated it, feeling it was a problem that the South must solve. Most early anti-slavery societies, though, arose in the North and many made efforts to spread their views by publishing. William Lloyd Garrison’s Liberator, published weekly between 1831 and 1865, had a Juvenile Department; the paper became the organ for the American Anti-Slavery Society which Garrison started in 1833.  Among the earliest children’s magazines was the Juvenile Miscellany (hereafter  JM), begun and edited by Lydia Maria Child, and published in Boston from 1826-1834....   [tags: American America History]

JFK - The release of JFK was a crucial moment in the account of motion pictures just as the events it portrays divided politics. Prior to JFK it would have been awfully hard to sell a political film in which the reality is issue, perverse, deformed, and in the end found impossible, in which the title character is murdered before the opening credits end rolling.

Slavery - Slavery Slavery is a social institution defined by law and custom as the most absolute involuntary form of human servitude. England entered the slave trade in the latter half of the 16th century. In 1713 the exclusive right to supply the Spanish colonies was granted to the British South Sea Company. The English based their trading in the North America. In North America the first African slaves landed at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1619.

Comparing Shakespeare' Julius Caesar, Ibsen's A Doll's House, and Miller's Death of a Salesman - Tragedy's Problem From Shakespeare' Julius Caesar to Henrik Ibsen's A Dolls House, problem plays have taken form in character, plot, and even setting.  It is not necessary for a problem play to be considered a problem play just because it was not written in the time period of when problem plays were formed.  Arthur Miller disproves this theory and successfully wrote a problem play in the modern time period; his play was Death of a Salesman.   The timely struggles that characters such as Willy Loman face, eventually lead to a major personal problem that, in this case, leads to death.  Problem plays deal directly with social and professional issues.  Death of a Salesman is a prime example of a character struggling with social and professional problems....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 1138 words
