“Up From Slavery” Louisiana Purchase was possible because of the Haitian Revolution The achievements of Africans in post-Civil war period was not only influential and impactful to us, but also to other African Americans who saw the journey from slavery to freedom Optimistic narrative of progress Civil rights can be pushed back chronologically and extend it geographically ( African Americans fought for civil rights not just in America, but also abroad ) Jim Crow racial segregation—began as a minstrel show, a character in a theatrical production mocking blacks.

    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.
