Applications for EducationWorld History textbooks have made progress in including more information about the history of Africa, but there is always more that could be included.

Audio Slideshow - Mapping Africa
I love the In Pictures section of the BBC News website because not only does it host great collections of images about current world events, it also hosts audio slideshows about a wide range of current and historical topics. One of the audio slideshows that I recently discovered and enjoyed watching is Mapping Africa. Mapping Africa is a five minute narrated overview of the changing map of Africa from the 14th Century through today. The slideshow features explanations of the features of different historical maps of Africa.
