Bonjour, je sais à quel point il est dure pour certains de concevoir leurs oraux de langue. Donc je vous partage les miens pour aider ceux qui en auront besoin. Je ne suis pas bilingue, ni brillante en anglais mais au moins vous avez des idées. Je suis lv2 anglais et j'ai passé mon oral il y a quelques semaines. La prof avait l'air satisfaite.

I’m going to talk about the notion Myths and Heroes. A myth can be defined as a story about gods or heroes, it can be a popular belief or a tradition. A hero can be a mythological figure, a person who is admired for his or her achievements, a superhero or maybe a role model or an icon.
To illustrate this notion, we will focus on the heroes who fought for equal rights in the United States.
To what extent can some Afro-Americans be considered as heroes?
At first, we will focus on the living conditions of African-Americans then we'll see how some people have helped change things while becoming heroes.

In the past, the living conditions of African Americans were terrible. All this because of their skin color. The whites lived like normal people and made black life a nightmare. Many things were forbidden to them. For example, with Jim Crow Laws we learn a lot of information about their living conditions. The Jim Crow Laws were racist laws which separated black and white people. In Alabama, black people were not allowed to buy bus tickets from the same ticket window as white people. Restaurant owners had to separate their white clients from their black ones. White children must be separated from black children at school. There were several rules as those we just saw for African Americans. They were treated so that they were considered inferior to whites. Unfortunately, they did not have the same rights. But does it still exist?

Some persons became famous because they fought against segregation. We can look at Martin Luther King who dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He fought for Afro-Americans rights and he was shot in 1968 in the cause of that effort. He wanted peace and equality of rights for blacks and whites. MLK thanks to his brave obstinance, things began to change and Jim Crow laws were challenged. In 1963, he delivered a speech that is called "I have a dream" and in part 2 of this one he explains his vision of the future. For him, the United States must become a country where whites and blacks are equal.
The fight led by these heroes allowed to get things done. They did not fight for nothing, they are not put in danger for nothing. Their struggle has been rewarded by certain evolutions.
From 1954, it is strictly forbidden to separate schools by skin color but it was not before 1960 that the first black girl decided to apply in a white school. And the first girl is Ruby Bridges: a very brave little girl who has made history.

To conclude, the life of African Americans has changed over time and that thanks to heroes who have made history. Thanks to their actions, they made things evolve as well as mentalities. And in 2008 an African-American is elected President of the United States, Barack Obama. This is proof of the evolution of the country. I think that all those people who have contributed to the equality of blacks and whites deserve totally to be considered as heroes because without them all this would probably not have been possible. Will racism in the world know an end?
