Ervin In the late 1800’s after the Civil War, many institutions such as: Howard University, Hampton Agricultural and Industrial School (now Hampton University), Morehouse College, North Carolina Agricultural and Technological State University, and Spelman College, were founded to give the newly freed African Americans places where they could get an education and learn how to be productive members of society in the United States. That’s what we are taught at least. The true reason that HBCUs were founded, was due to the fact that just because black people were free, didn’t mean they were on equal terms with white people. As time has gone on America has evolved as a nation; however, there are many improvements that can be made. African- Americans are not only allowed, but to a certain extent, welcomed into predominantly white institutions. For this reason, some people believe that HBCUs have outlived their purpose. On the contrary HBCUs offer many great lessons that young African-Americans need to learn today.

    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.
