Teaching about the Violent Past: Apartheid and Its Legacies

In this webinar, we will model how Facing History's pedagogical approach, content, and methods can be used to support teaching and learning about the violent past. Our partners in South Africa, Dylan Wray of Shikaya and Roy Hellenberg, an educator and school leader, show how they use Facing History to teach the history of Apartheid, its legacies, and South Africa’s transition to democracy.
