The brochure advertises Amandla, a slide show that makes the links between the mounting struggle against apartheid and South Africa's history. The show portrays Africans fighting for elemental rights: the right to vote, to own land, to lead a government. It covers the formation of the ANC (African National Congress), PAC (Pan Africanist Congress, and BCM (Black Consciousness Movement), the Congress of the People, the Treason Trial, the Sharpeville Massacre, the trade union movement and today's situation. The slide show is by Peter Davis, the creator of the highly acclaimed Generations of Resistance film, and is designed for class teaching. The slide show Amandla comes in two parts (18 and 16 minutes) with cassette tapes, script, and a teacher's guide. The brochure includes a quote from Dr. William Minter, Research Director of Africa News. [The teacher’s guide, Amandla: A Teachers Guide to Accompany the Slide Show by Kevin Danaher, is available on this website.]
