In 1985, the police killed four Cradock community activists. These men, known as the Cradock Four, became a national symbol of resistance and heroes in the struggle against apartheid. The video, Nyameka's Story, was made in order to tell the story of one family's experiences during the years of apartheid and resistance within the context of a community's struggle. A Learner's Guide which accompanies the video provides a background to the important issues raised in the video. Tasks and questions that can be done at some point during the screening of the video and afterwards, can be found in the learners guide. The activities are suitable for group, paired and individual work and include suggestions for research projects that can be done as either oral presentations or written tasks for portfolio assessments.
