Building Blocks for Democracy


The Potchefstroom Oral History Resource Guide is based on the workshop activities that were conducted during 2011 with history educators from Potchefstroom and Ventersdorp, North West Province. The project explored the changing of place and street names in Potchefstroom where this issue was highly contested, as an example of cultural/historical redress. This is the final book of our second volume, Building Blocks for Democracy. In 2009 Democratic participation in Cradock was explored and in 2010 the theme was Non-racialism in Welkom’s schools.
