    Moscone was trying to get a more diverse board of supervisors. So in 1977 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors had a filipino man, an african american woman, and an openly gay man named Harvey Milk. Harvey fought against a law called proposition six, wich was a law proposed by a pollution named John Briggs. The law would allow schools to fire their teachers because of sexual orientation.

He thought that San Francisco was losing it’s family values by starting to accept homosexualality. Harvey and Dan White would often argue in the office. He eventually resigned, saying…

  • An Analysis Of Harvey Milk's Speech

    universally accepted in San Francisco in the period 1973-80 but it is equally likely that there were many parts of America, such as in the conservative deep south, where being openly gay was very dangerous, as it ultimately was for Milk himself. The usefulness of Source 9 is further limited by its lack of acknowledgement of change throughout the period. The speech was given in 1978 and regardless of how useful it is concerning the understanding of gay rights in 1978, it tells the historian…

  • Harvey Milk Research Paper

    According to Donahue (37), his campaign was based on community building, the growth of tourism industry, and a better future concerning children’s healthcare, poverty elimination and addressing the increasing issue of unemployment.

  • The Butterfly Revolution Analysis

    Benjamin Franklin once said “[t]hose who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” The message Franklin was trying to convey is that liberty is a gift, and it should not be used as a bargaining chip for ones personal desires. His warning to all about the value of vital rights is not just right-wing propaganda, but rather a warning with truth behind it. Throughout history many people have given total devotion to a ruler in hopes…

  • The Importance Of Inaugural Addresses

    ” Will believes that “the general shortening of sentences reflects, in part, a change in nature of Inaugural Addresses.” He refers to Teddy Roosevelt who called the presidency “a bully pulpit.” Later addresses have had an incentive to tell Americans how to behave with phrases such as “The only thing we have to fear…” and “Ask not…” A more popular phrase which was used by Kennedy and Nixon was “Let us…,” which according to Will means, “For Pete’s sake, pull up your socks and shape up.” The…

  • Critical Analysis Of A Sunday On La Grande Jatte

    I had to understand why Seurat used such a difficult technique for his work. I then came upon the theory that perhaps he wanted to produce a deeper sense of life in his paintings. All things in the world are composed of millions of cells, and these cells create objects, color, and everything that practically exists.
