Jarrod Price History 106-523 January 29, 2007 The American Promised Land Imagine being on a boat headed towards America. Your anticipation grows as you leave your troubles from your homeland behind you. Through the fog you can see the Statue of Liberty holding her torch. The thoughts of pursuing your dreams would fill your body with overwhelming joy. That is exactly what the promise of America is, pursuing your dreams, equality, and freedom. The sources that we discussed in class tell us of the journey of America. In particular, the song “Promised Land,” by Chuck Berry, in which he sings about crossing America in search of the Promised Land. He runs into trouble in Birmingham, which symbolizes the hardships of the Civil Rights movement at the time. He then continues through the United States and as time passes, things gradually get better until he reaches California, “The Promised Land.” The sources also describe the ability to pursue your dreams in America.

    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.
