  5. Get hype!! FUN FACT

  7. March for Freedom In Selma, Alabama many marches took place, protesting one thing, freedom. Though at first the non-violent protesters were even beaten on the lawn of their church. They kept fighting for what they believed in, and that was rights. Back

  8. Bob Dylan Biography Bob Dylan was born on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota. He taught himself to play the harmonica, guitar, and the piano. Dylan was only twenty years old he released his first album which was mainly cover tunes, though it did have two original songs. His next album which was released in 1963, contained more original songs and had a theme mainly of protest. On July 29, 1966 Bob Dylan broke his neck in a near fatal motorcycle crash.  Back

  9. Bob Dylan’s son, Jakob Dylan is also a musician • He plays for a band named Wallflowers Back

  10. White dove • I chose this line because doves have for a long time symbolized peace and love. • The dove works perfectly here because of how this song is about the constant fight for equality and peace and this is what the dove stands for. Back

  11. How many seas • How there was a constant fight to end segregation even through laws such as The Civil Rights Act of 1964. This law made it illegal to have separate schools, restaurants, buses, and even bathrooms. But there were still organizations like the KKK that were still organized and secretly working against these laws. Back

  12. The answer This line I found as the theme of this song. The reason I feel this is the theme is when Bob Dylan was writing he was thinking of how when segregation was going on all the people could see the answers around them of how bad it was for the country. But they continued to stay segregated despite all the actions and how much the Civil Right activists fought for there freedom. Back

  13. some people existBefore they’re allowed to be free? This goes with long it took for African Americans to get the right to vote. One giant step for that allowed them to vote was the Voting Rights Act that was passed by Congress in 1965. This was passed by Congress mainly because of how much the Civil Rights Activists peacefully fought through speeches such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Also this brought an end to literacy test for voters to register. Back

  14. How many times must a cannonball fly On November 6, 1860 when Abraham Lincoln was elected president, this outraged southern states which led them to secede. All the states that had seceded became the Confederate states led by a former Mississippi senator, Jefferson Davis. After President Lincoln’s inaugural address the Confederate states were not satisfied and this led them to attack Fort Sumter which was the beginning to the Civil War. And as you know they were fighting over whether slavery should be allowed in the southern states. Back

  15. The rhyme scheme There are many rhyme schemes and in this song there was a scheme of A,B,C,B,D,B, E,E. This is rather simple rhyming and is accomplished with the last words of the line. Examples- Rhyming a,b,c,b- Mary had a little lamb Its fleece was white as snow And everywhere that Mary went The lamb was sure to go. Rhyming a,b,a,b The rain was like a little mouse, quiet, small and gray. It pattered all around the house and then it went away Back

  16. Can a mountain exist Definition- figurative description or illustration; rhetorical images collectively; the formation of mental images, figures, or likenesses of things, or of such images collectively: the dim imagery of a dream. This is imagery because it describes what is going on really well. Since there is so much description it allows you to see this line visually and makes you think. Back

  17. Pretending he just can’t see After the African Americans started gaining rights many people were still against most of them including those who were in the KKK. As you know the job of the KKK was to keep racial segregation and harm those who were African American and people who stood up for them. Though Ku Klux Klan organization was formed African Americans overcame this and continued to pursue ending all segregation. Back

  18. Anaphora(repetition) Definition-also called epanaphora. Rhetoric. repetition of a word or words at the beginning of two or more successive verses, clauses, or sentences. Example-We shall not flag or fail. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender. Churchill Back

  19. All The People that have Died Fighting for Freedom This line in the song refers to how there have been so many people such as Martin Luther King Jr. who had fought for freedom and past on. Mr. King fought for freedom in Marches and protests all peacefully including the March on Washington which was for Jobs and Freedom. Also his I’ve been to the Mountaintop speech on April 3, 1968 which was the day before he was assassinated. Back
