Coullie, Judith L. Put to rights: testimony, witnessing and human rights in human rights and
narrated lives: the ethics of recognition. English in Africa. 33.1, Rhodes University, p.
137. 25 Sept. 2016.
In this article the author discusses the human rights in individuals who are testifying as
witnesses. The author introduces the article by stating that personal storytelling evolves the
statement of human rights, in the light of the fact that it shows the unique traits of a human
being. The author states that it is an honor to be a testifier and it should be a basic human right.
Throughout the article the author discusses life narratives and how this trait that personalizes
humans; they affect social change throughout time. The author states how Nelson Mandela has
shown publicly the human rights during the apartheid. With him protesting and eventually
becoming a figure many individuals looked up to, the event has drawn attention to how every
being should have rights. Throughout history, demonstrating basic human rights is still a struggle
in this world.
Coullie converses about the right to have human rights throughout the article. The author
wants the audience to realize that every human should be privileged to have rights such as
speaking ones mind. The events that have occurred throughout history show awareness, from the
beginning of time to now, that there are still complications in society right now about basic
human rights. The effects of past events (such as events that have occurred recently) have created

Le 2
groups such as the Black Lives Matter movement and the groups goal is to show awareness that
violence is not acceptable. The author wants the audience to grasp the fact that the goal of equal
rights is still not achieved, and draws many examples from Nelson Mandelas protest to
testimonies in the court. These examples also help support the authors argument about how
there should be more peace in the world.
Fairclough, Adam. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Quest for Nonviolent Social Change.
Phylon: The Atlanta University Review of Race and Culture. vol. 47, no. 1, Clark Atlanta
University, 1960, pp. 1-15. 25 Sept. 2016.
This article discusses the civil rights movement created by Martin Luther King Jr. and the
effects of the movement. The author introduces the topic of how King established his movement
by focusing on nonviolent protesting and wanting other races to realize that segregation and
discrimination is morally wrong. Throughout his movement, King has realized that showing
awareness has cause tension throughout his community, and he must think of a new strategy.
King then focused on moral persuasion, and tried to reason with the white supremacy. The white
supremacy, or individuals that are against what King believed in, has caused violence throughout
history to state their declaration that they do not support equality. Kings movement was difficult
to support at the time and all he wanted was to stop segregation and promote equality.
The article expresses how much Martin Luther King Jr. has tried to show the world how
equality can make the world a better place. This article is familiar with the article discussing
human rights, because of the fact that King wanted equal rights for every being, not just for
African Americans. The author states events throughout the article that relates to current events,
such as the Black Lives Matter movement, and how this group wants the world to realize that
equal rights should be supported. The Black Lives Matter movement is very similar to a project

Le 3
called the Poor Peoples Campaign that was proposed by King. Both of these movements show
awareness that the rights of everyone should matter instead of their diverse background. These
movements are supporting peace in the world, and he won the Nobel Prize for this goal.
Khan, Mohammed A. Putting Good Society Ahead of the Economy: Overcoming
Neoliberalisms Growth Trap and its Costly Consequences. Sustainable Development.
Vol. 23, no. 1, Wiley Online Library, 2015, pp. 55-63. 26 Sept. 2016.
Neoliberalism is rising in society, and this would change society. Neoliberalism is a belief
of free trade and open markets. The article states many possibilities that can help change the
world, and how the economy should not affect society. Countries that have neoliberal economic
policies are better off economically, but can only be successful with some social costs, and
environmental issues resolved. The main goal of neoliberalism is to show a happy society and
to make society a priority over economy and politics. The theory of neoliberalism has spread
globally, and the discusses on how leaders of the world must think of the individuals of the world
instead of how the world works economically.
The authors argument on neoliberalism reveals their passion of peace on earth. The
article expresses many different methods to show how neoliberalism can change the world and
make the world a better place. The author wants the audience to realize that although some
sacrifices need to be made to have neoliberalism exist, the outcome is worthy enough to not
consider the sacrifices. The author is drawing the audience a hypothetical picture of how this
theory can change the world to have more of a happy society than to have the world running as
a business. Neoliberalism is supporting society over economy, and this theory supports more
love in the world.

The article examines the characteristics and traits of a peacemaker. The article primarily
focuses on Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela is a role model to society due to his reputation as a
peacemaker. He has potential to promote peace and his peacemaking skills changed society by
introducing a new perspective to the world. Mandela was able to have people aboard with his
views by how his personality promotes others to mock his character. While Mandelas
characteristics and personal traits have aided him to become a better peacemaker to the world,
Mandelas personality has shown to have a positive impact on social change.
The author mainly focuses on Nelson Mandela due to the fact that he is different than
most peacemakers. Unlike Martin Luther King or Mohandas Gandhi, he was a politician and the
traits to his personality triggered many individuals attention. The article supports that Mandela
has made a change in the world with his peacemaking skills. Many individuals in society know
who Nelson Mandela is, in light of the fact that he is one of the most successful peacemakers in
the world. He has received a Nobel Peace Prize due to his accomplishments, and many
individuals have recognized Mandela for this. In general, his figure has resulted in others to
mock the nature of his personality.

This article digs into the meaningful speech given by Martin Luther King himself in
1963. Martin Luther Kings primary goal was to promote equality to society and to have
individuals of a separated society to come together as brothers and sisters. His speech has
promoted non-discrimination, equality, and eventually, poverty and factors that initiated from
discrimination. King has shown awareness to poverty and equality issues socially, economically,

Le 5
and politically. King wanted social change, but he also wanted individuals to be true to their
main values as human beings. He encouraged them to have an open mind and to listen to others
discuss their opinions. King wants the world to create a change to society that will help create a
better world for everyone to live in.
While Martin Luther Kings speech was very motivational and promoted a mass amount
of awareness to equality, this issue is still a problem today. In modern day, many individuals are
not given equal pay and are not treated equality at times. Society has changed significantly since
Kings speech. Society has currently agreed to many diverse things such as school and jobs. The
most recent social change is the right for individuals in the LGBT community to be married. This
is an issue that promotes equality dramatically, and this is a large step to a more open and
accepting society. Kings speech has been inspiring to many individuals in the world in every
aspect. Many places of work have promoted equal pay to women, and many places of education
have supported diversity in students.
