The readings posted here are gathered from a wide array of researchers and contexts. They are not only informative but meant to facilitate reflection in classrooms.
Ethnic diversity is of particular importance to African Nations; how do we co-exist within colonial borders that split ethnic communities into two, three or even four countries? What answers do we have towards preventing ethnic violence and genocides in the present day? What opportunity does pluralism as an ethic of respect for difference present? How do educators address vexing questions often hanging unanswered in class rooms such as; how can a national identity be cultivated and enhanced in a multi-ethnic situation? Is ethnicity in Africa a political and social construct?
The readings invite educators to turn the ethnic diversity in their countries and classes into a resource.
