This week check out Professor Henry Louis Gate's new six-hour series, Africa’s Great Civilizations on PBS. Gates takes a new look at the history of Africa, from the birth of humankind to the dawn of the 20th century. Young adults need to hear these stories even though the story of colonialism can be very disturbing. The challenge is how to empower young people to embrace their history without the anger that can be crippling. Watch it together but beprepared to discuss their questions.
