Unit #1

Unit #1 • I think that the most important topic we covered in general was slavery

I think that the most important topic we covered in general was slavery. Not only with African Americans but with the Tainos and how they all suffered. Well in unit 1 we found out that Columbus was not the first to visit the indigenous. While he was looking for gold and spices he ended up taking the indigenous people as slaves! Most people are Mestizos because the Spaniards forced women into marriage. The indigenous people suffered a lot from depression and fear and at the same time hatred. They were tortured and abused. After so many indigenous people died they ended up getting African American slaves! They had to do through something know as the middle passage and it was devastating. Blacks ended up working in encomiendas.

Unit #2

Unit #2 • I think that the most important thing we studied in unit 2 was

I think that the most important thing we studied in unit 2 was the Jim crow laws. This is also know as segregation. Its important because it caused a lot of violence and hatred. Once he slaves were free there was still something bad. The Jim crow laws made separate schools, water-faucets, bathrooms, and other places that would separate whites and blacks. The things that belonged to the blacks were always worst then the whites. For example, a black mans faucet would only have warm water but a white mans faucet would have a cooler the made it cool. While this was going on many people were protesting. Segregation ended in 1964 with the civil rights act.

Unit #3

Unit #3 • I think that the most important thing we studied in unit 3 was

I think that the most important thing we studied in unit 3 was how the Mestizos, blacks, criollos, and indigenous people came together and began rebel against the Spaniards. This is important because since they come together they managed to stop the evil Spaniards, it showed that union can do almost anything. Miguel Hidalgo led the attack against the spaniards. The Spaniards found out about this and he knew he was going to be arrested so he decided to just charge to battle. He had just about 100,000 followers and in 1811 he was captured and killed.(Very similar to the case of Nat Turner). Even though Hidalgo was killed it did not end! Others took his footsteps and they took over.

What is the most important topic of all?

I think that the most important thing overall would be, slavery in general.

When I say slavery I mean indigenous people and African Americans.

I think slavery is so important because if it never existed then a lot more people would get along and segregation would have probably never taken place.

Leadership

I think leadership means plenty of things.

It can mean leading a group or just doing what you got to do to make places like your community better.

A leader doesn’t pick sides, a leader brings those sides together.
