The emancipation proclamation wasn’t enough to help the African Americans get around in the United States. They would have trouble securing their freedom because the southerners don’t want to let them go. Some African Americans were forced to work without payment and didn’t have a choice sometime. African Americans also didn’t have many places to go for shelter, so they would be forced to stay and work. Some successfully made their own businesses with the help of whites from the north and a few from the south. It was tough to get around at time but got better over time.

    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.
