I Am Proud To Be An American

I am proud to be an American because Harriet Tubman was willing to risk her freedom so others could have their freedom.

I am proud to be an American because Rosa Parks fought against injustice and was the example for all of us to do so.

I am proud to be an American because Susan B. Anthony understood the basic political right of voting and was one of the leaders of  the women’s suffrage movement.

I am proud to be an American because W. E. B. DuBois vociferously fought against unjust Jim Crow laws.

I am proud to be an American because James Meredith broke color barriers by becoming the first African American student admitted to the segregated University of Mississippi.

Why are you proud to be an American?
