African Americans became role models: VA Jubilee Singers-weren’t simply reformers, they were on stage in South Africa generally. Even when they weren’t on stage, people were watching them; when they fought for and were successful for their civil rights while in South Africa, blacks and whites paid attention-they were classified as honorary whites; designation allowed them to be exempt from segregationist laws and their exemption didn’t go unnoticed by black South Africans-were subject to the laws because they lacked certain characteristics to be modern citizens; weren’t educated, Christian, or come from nation states, etc unless whites took it unto themselves to educate blacks and only then could Africans progress ideas that sought to justify segregation and white rule; mechanism not to exploit but as a favor to Africans to help

    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.
