About Our Partner

Confronting Apartheid was created in partnership with the Boston University African Studies Center, part of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies. The BU African Studies Center was founded in 1953 to promote excellence in research, study, publication, and teaching about Africa. We are pleased to partner with Facing History through our Outreach Program and with support from the US Department of Education, which has designated the BU African Studies Center a Title VI National Resource Center. The views in the materials do not represent those of the US Department of Education.
