Cuban History - With the passage of the Cuban Constitution in 1901, suffrage was legally extended to every Cuban, and racial equality, in the legal sense, was achieved in Cuba. Since the emancipation of slavery in the 1880s, there was a general trend towards the granting of full rights to Cubans of color. Two elements of Cuban society were instrumental in this achievement: the existence of a multi-racial labor force and the existence of a multi-racial revolutionary army during the rebellion against Spain. While both contributed to the achievement of racial equality, the existence of a multi-racial revolutionary army was more central to this goal, because it was a more genuine unification of races, and was a more immediate and direct cause of the principles written into the Constitution in 1901....   [tags: Cuba] 942 words

Nature - Nature What we see in nature is only what we are able to perceive, and it is dependent on our own mind and sensitivity to it. Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his Nature essay, often refers to nature as though it were somewhat of an apparition, containing a great deal of surface value. In order to tap into the spiritual, into the over-soul, the facade of nature must be penetrated to be experienced. It is the responsibility, therefore, of the viewer to attempt to "see through" the surface of the physical, which is a manifestation of the Spirit, which will, in turn, allow him to find the relation between nature and our conscious selves....   [tags: Papers] 362 words

In the difficult era of the 1930's, the family's role shifted to guard against a hostile outside world rather than to provide a link with it. With the drought in the Dust Bowl and other tragedies of the Great Depression, many were forced to look beyond the traditional family unit and embrace their kinship with others of similar necessity. In his novel The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck uses the theme of strength through unity to comment on the relationship between the dissolution of individual families and the unification of the migrant people....   [tags: Grapes Wrath essays] 978 words
