Captain Delano boards his boat. Before the crew drops their oars into the water, Cereno suddenly  springs overboard into the stern at Delano's feet. Three Spanish sailors leap overboard and swim  toward Don Benito. Before Delano can fully comprehend the unexpected movement, Babo jumps  into the  Rover,  dagger drawn as though intending to harm Delano. Delano wrenches the weapon  away and hits Babo with such force that the black man is thrown to the bottom of the boat. As  Delano tries to hear Cereno's words, he notices that Babo has pulled a second dagger from his hair  and is aiming it at Cereno's heart. At once, Delano realizes that Babo is an enemy. He strikes Babo,  who is immediately restrained, and realizes that the blacks aboard the  San Dominick  are irate at the  turn of events. As they roil on the decks above, the Spanish ship's cable is cut and a loose end

    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.
