Black History Month Project: Part III

Qualities of a hero. Hmm…….Aha!!!! I’ve got one! Extraordinary talents. Most heroes, storybook or real life, have extraordinary talent to do whatever they want (hopefully for good) Light bulb!! A weakness! Every hero has a weakness. Superman has Kryptonite, Robin Hood had a weakness in sword fighting, and King Arthur…… his son, the evil Mordred. Also there is a great deed. Like the guy from Transformers, trying to save the planet from the Deceptiwhatevers. That’s what I think makes a hero

Black History Month Project: Part II

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
-William Ernest Henley

This poem inspired Nelson Mandela to fight for Black Rights: Let’s break it down.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
for my unconquerable soul.

While Mandela was in prison, he thought that the first two stanzas were the prison he was in.
Mandela probably thought that that his soul was unconquerable, by any man

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Mandela probably thought he had fallen into the clutch of circumstance.
He probably did not show his pain. the last line states that Mandela did not give in or give up.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

The place of wrath and tears was probably thought as Mandela’s Prison.
The menace of the years is probably the Prison guards.
This means that they will find him unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

These last two stanzas were critical to Mandela and his fight for black rights and his freedom. I believe that the movie was named Invictus, not because it was a great poem, but a great man who believed in himself and used the poem to get his freedom.

1. Nelson Mandela faced many of the problems that MLK Jr. did. Although, MLK was never arrested, government interference was always a problem. Mandela became President after his near 3 decades of prison time. Although, most people thought assasination attempts would be executed on Mandela, nothing has happened since he has become President. I believe that Mandela had a harder time fighting for rights than MLK. After all, Mandela was in prison trying to fight fo Black rights.
