Problem Statement

Slavery, discrimination and social injustice are three textual artifacts that have grown to become topics of concern among many people. The terms date back to ancient times where the prevalent state of inequality and difference in race brought the development unjust actions and inappropriate treatment in the society. Research has shown that the effects of these texts have been seen over a wide range of disciplines where there are unfair practices that tend to discriminate against people of different status and race. The diversity of the effects go as far as the justice system, the political realm and the social setting where in most cases the African-Americans are viewed as the minority race.


It is possible to find slavery, discrimination and social injustice as a topic of debate in different article covers, newspapers and social media platforms owing to the vast effect it has had on African-Americans over the years. A rise in the rate of injustice owes to the failure of the criminal and justice system to consider the rights of the African-Americans while implementing law enforcement.

Literature Review

Coates in the article The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration notes that the African-American community has experienced constant harassment through discrimination, social injustice and slavery as people from other races in higher social status propel their levels of achievement (Coates para. 6). Most people argue that a wide scale of reparations should be made for the African-Americans to bridge the disparities between different races and people from advanced social status.

Research Methodology

            This study aims at employing extensive research to identify the origin and relation of the textual artifacts. Research on the textual artifacts needs qualitative evaluation of the information acquired over the years. However, the best ways to collect primary data is through periodic personal interviews and through combining information acquired from the archives.
