Posted on behalf of the African Studies Center.

Soon after Mandela's passing--what a loss for us all--Brenda Randolph and I set to work to create a K-12 Resource Guide to Nelson Mandela, Apartheid and the Struggle for Freedom [attached]. This is the teachable moment and an appropriate time for selecting the best resources for young people. The URL is  http://www.bu.edu/africa/outreach  The guide was created with pre-K-12 in mind.

The authors of the guide: I direct the program in public education on Africa at BU's African Studies Ctr, while Brenda Randolph is a retired school librarian and the founder and host of the best website for pre-K-12 books on Africa -- www.africaccessreview.org<http://www.africaccessreview.org/>

We would like librarians, especially those who serve young people to have this resource, so that others can learn and think about this extraordinary man and his people.
