10/14/05 EWS 201 Humber Reflection Paper Chapter one of “The African American Experience”, titled “Before the Atlantic Crossing”, sets us up for what is to come in chapter two, which is titled “The Transatlantic Trade, the Plantation System, and Black Labor.” What chapter one had to offer, as far as cultural background and history, puts thoughts into my mind that I have never really considered before. I mean, I have pretty much figured that life began in and spread from Africa, but I always have pictures the Egyptians as just a brown, non-African culture until now. Reading about it, it makes sense. I was also a little surprised at how much more the Nubian peoples were involved with Egypt and African overall. The Trans-Saharan trade network surprised me by revealing that there was more to it than trading gum, kola nuts, and ivory with the evidence of African slaves being traded and herded to and fro over 500 years before the white man came to take them to the “new world.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
