Kendall Beckley 10-26-10 History The reconstruction was a very difficult time for everyone to get used to. It caused a lot of  hatred between races. The basic facts of reconstruction were, that slavery was abolished, black  and white people were to live among each other, and that we should all stay and be free. White  people back then saw it as loosing all their money so they were not happy with the blacks.  Life during Reconstruction was war between both sides. Racial tension in the south was  extremely high, they didn’t know how to get along with each other. Segregation was a huge part  of the south. Separate bathrooms, separate schools, black people were hit and hung, white  people were hated and probably beaten also. Black people couldn’t find work because no one  wanted to hire them, so they were all poor and homeless unless they knew someone. Life after reconstruction things got better but racism still exist and existed. Both sides  tolerated each other better, but not all the time. A lot of black people came from the south to north  during” The Great Migration.” They got work and were treated as humans again.

    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.
