African Culture

June 19 2006 African Culture Newsletter

Hello everyone!

I hope thhat this newsletter finds you well and happy. This month we are remembering the young people of South Africa whose protest 30 years ago was a key event in the struggle for freedom.

I watched a documentary last week on this issue and actually was in tears - it is also important to celebrate the fact that their struggle was not in vain as South Africa has now had 12 years of democratically elected governments.

Check this out if you would like to read more about it -
