Question Description

I’m working on a English exercise and need support.

For this essay I would like you to choose either women, African Americans, or Native Americans. Please compose a 3 page essay comparing the status of one of those groups in the 18th-19th century with their status today. Please try to focus on a single topic such as voting rights, civil rights, representation in government or other positions of power, wealth and property ownership, or access to education, rather than trying to tackle too broad a subject -- you won't be able to describe every way in which women's status has changed during this time period in 3 mere pages.

Your essay must include:

A quote from a piece of literature written during the period we are studying (17-1800s).

Factual information cited from a reliable historical source dealing with the status of this group in the past.

Factual information cited from a reliable sociological source dealing with the status of this group today.

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

this essay. The paper compared the status of civil rights for African Americans today and the 1819th century period.
Civil Rights Struggle in the Past and Today
Race and racial inequalities have crafted American history from its foundation. Many
Americans consider the founding of the colonies and the independent U.S as based on the need
for freedom, from the beginning, religious freedom, and later on, in the 18 century, political and
economic as well as social liberty. However, from its beginning, American society was built on
different kinds of brutal domination, oppression, and inequality that entailed the absolute refusal
