My essay topic is basically what has changed in the history of the United States in slavery that allows an African American (Obama) to run for president. Where should I get my information and does anyone have any ideas of what I should say? I just don't know how to justify anything, you know, like exactly what has happened? It has to be 2 pages double spaced, so I'm kinnda freaking out. Any help?

    I’d try something like this: The road from slavery to the day that an African-American is a candidate for president has been long and hard.then google and talk about the following things:Emancipation Proclamation- 1863, Lincoln declares all slaves in the United States of America to be free13th amendment- Granting citizens rights to African-Americans.Jim Crow laws- southern states attempts to prevent African-Americans from voting.Plessy v. Ferguson- 1898- A supreme Court case that held that African-Americans were separate, but equalBrown v. the Board of education-1954- a Supreme Court case that held that separate but equal was not a workable system.Rosa Parks- refused to follow the law of the time that African Americans must sit at the back of the busCivil Rights laws-1964Martin Luther King- excerpts from any of his speeches to advance your thesis.2000- Appointment of Colin Powell as Secretary of State2008- Nomination of Obama for president. Should find enough information within these to put together a good chronology of attitudes leading to todays’ time.
