On Wednesday May 13, 2009, a panel discussed the many sides of Barack Obama, ranging from a man who inspired quilters to a post-Civil rights leader to a pop icon figure in “The Meanings of Obama,” held in the MUII at UC Davis . The panelists included Nicki King, a youth and family development specialist, Lisa G . Materson, an assistant professor of history, Patricia Turner, professor of African American and African Studies, and Halifu Osumare, associate professor of African American and African Studies . Nicki King presented first and discussed the fact that even though America is in a post civil rights era it does not mean we have reached equity . It just refers to the leaders who became such after the death of Martin Luther King Jr . She concluded that Obama will do something, but he cannot do everything for the movement to reach equity in America . The second presenter, Lisa G . Materson, talked about the politics of Chicago relating to Barack Obama .

    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.
