Summarize "a boy who was traded for a horse" by George Washington carver
In A Boy Who Was Traded for A Horse, by James Saxon Childers, I learned that Dr. George Washington Carver started with nothing. He never had anything. [ Yet out of nothing he had created inestimable wealth for fellow human beings, to whom he had devoted his life. He was born a slave with no name. He did not know his father or mother, and didn’t even know his birthday. He was born in a rude
slave cabin on the farm of Moses Carver near Diamond Grove, Missouri. Moses Carver owned his mother, and a neighbor owned his father. When he was a baby six months old, night riders swooped down on his master’s plantation and carried away a number of slaves, among them the baby and his mother. Read more: ]

What are two principles from Thoreau's "from civil disobedience"?
Weegy: The first principle is that you maintain respect for the rule of law even while disobeying the specific law that you perceive as unjust. [ Gandhi very much admired Socrates’ respect for Athenian law and his decision not to flee when his prison guards were bribed. King was always confident that American democracy would eventually treat his people as equal under the rule of law. Non-violent activists do not seek to undermine the rule of law, but only the repeal of unjust laws. Gandhi and King’s demands were clear and simple: laws that discriminated and disenfranchised must be abolished. Indian outcastes, African-Americans, and gays do not want “special rights”; they simply want the rights that all others enjoy. All legislators should realize that keeping discriminatory laws that many reasonable people protest erodes respect for the law. The second principle of civil disobedience follows from the first: you should plead guilty to any violation of the law. As Gandhi explains: “I am here to . . . submit cheerfully to the highest penalty that can be inflicted upon me for what in law is a deliberate crime and what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen.” Gandhi instructed his disciples to take the penance of their oppressors upon themselves. Gandhi’s tactics were a form of moral and political ju jitzu. Some of Gandhi’s judges felt as if they were the ones charged and convicted. Thoreau said that his one night in jail made the state look foolish. We have now arrived at the third principle of civil disobedience: you should attempt to convert your opponent by demonstrating the justice of your cause. Active nonviolence does not seek, as Gandhi says, “to defeat or humiliate your opponents, but to win their friendship and understanding.” ] (More)
