Heba Attia Period 5 May 13th,2014 "For Africa to me... is more than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth. No man can know where he  is going unless he knows exactly where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present  place. " - Maya Angelou All around the world, certain terminology is associated with Africans. Within those terms one can find the words animalistic, jungle, ill-bred, brutish , as well as many other crude synonyms. For many decades these arrogant terms were used by the many who were misguided about the elaborate culture and history of Africa. Acclaimed Nigerian Author, Chinua Achebe, successfully disproves many of these misguided stereotypes. In his notable work, Things Fall Apart, he presents the complexity of African life prior to European colonization, by showcasing the intricacy of African language, religion, and customs. To start off , Achebe portrays the intricacy of African life by showing African language.

    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.
