Washington advocated social peace for African-Americans and said they should not fight too much with their subordinates.

Film from Zora Neale Hurston’s Fieldwork: She worked hard, slept in her car, suffered from lack of sanitation and poor food. She went around detailing the lives of other African-American people and how their evolution from slavery. She maintained strong in detailing the lives of African women. She is famous for writing “Their Eyes Were Watching God.” She loved teaching children about their heritage and teaching them the importance of writing. She was not a religious person.

    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.
