Chicago 10th grader wants to help her school know more about the African Continent

I have been corresponding with a 10th grader from Chicago who was born in Ethiopia and  contacted me after she had read my article http://www.margyburnsknight.com/teachafrica.html . She hopes to work with a few teachers to create an elective next year.  I told her on the phone that I would send her a her a copy of Africa is Not a Country and Talking Walls Discover Your World and when the books arrived be sure to read the last  sentence in Talking Walls, a Nelson Mandela quote. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
