“We the People”-Betania Ramirez

One of the subjects that caught my attention was Jean Wheeler Smith’s “Frankie Mae”, Fredrick Douglass “Learning to Read and Write and Bill Moyers “Is the Fourth Estate a Fifth Column? Frankie Mae and Learning to Read and Write explain from their own perspectives about one of the most impacting events in American History – slavery. It was one of the most crucial time period for African Americans when they weren’t granted  freedom because of the color of their skin. Bill Moyers “Is the Fourth Estate a Fifth Column” speaks on a similar subject. We are trapped in this cage of information where we don’t even know if what we see on television or read in newspapers is real. Even in lecture we discussed how complicated it is for people to know the truth. People are so stuck to the money that they prefer the program that contains more ratings than the one that brings out truth.
