Since 2004 the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation has developed a distinctive methodology to encourage and enable post-apartheid youth to generate oral history in their communities. Projects have been undertaken in Namaqualand, Kakamas, Upington and Rietfontein in the Northern Cape and Langa, Constantia, Hout Bay, and Paarl in the Western Cape. A series of teachers' guides on each of these case studies were produced. These educational resources are now drawn together into this single volume, with each guide forming a chapter. The chapters are:

1. From Exclusive to Inclusive Narratives: a toolkit for budding historians

2. Pass Laws in the Western Cape: implementation and resistance (2004)

3. Forced Removals: a case study on Constantia (2005)

4. Stories op die Wind: 'n handleiding vir opvoeders oor Noord-Kaapse volksverhale (2006)

5. Bridging the Apartheid Divide: two case studies (2008)
