2. Write an article on the founding of the N.A.A.C.P
The N.A.A.C.P stands for national association for the advancement of colored people. It was founded on February 12, in the year of 1909. The main goal or priority of this group was mainly "to secure for all people the rights guaranteed in the 13,14,15 Amendments of the United States Constitution".The most important People that were in charge and also involved or contributed in this strong movement was Ida Wells-Barnett,W.E.B DuBois,Henry Moscowitz,Mary White Ovington,Oswald Garrison Villiard, and William English. Ida B. Wells was the main person that helped form this association. W.E.B DuBois didnt believe in Booker T. Washington's method of patience and to wait for the answer and outcome of racial progress. He Belived in the total opposite of that which is to have complete demand to all the rights they should have by our constitution. For things they wanted solved which were: to end slavery, equal protection of the law, and universal adult male suffrage.



3. Speech for Congress:
4,743. That's how many lynchings took place in the United States across a span of 80 years (1882-1968). 4,743, about one every week for 8 decades. Of those 4,743, 3,446 were black people. 72% of all lynching happened to blacks in America. America was originally set up to be a land of freedom, a land for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but for blacks it was anything but that. Even though blacks did all the work on white peoples farms as slaves for many many decades and continued to do it for very little money after they were freed, they were still hated by many whites because the white people felt it was important to protect their white women, and they believed blacks had too much freedom and needed to be controlled after slavery was banned. Congress, made up of white Americans, gave blacks the freedom they deserved, but now those same white men are killing those blacks because they believe blacks are too free? That makes no sense. Lynching is a cruel and inhumane way to die. The fact that people can be so corrupted to think that hanging a person from a tall pole or tree in public so everyone can see that person suffer seriously needs a psychological exam. Lynching should never be allowed as any sort of punishment for any crime that any person commits.
