Explore Nelson Mandela's Archives Online

The Nelson Mandela Digital Archive is a new collection from the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory. The archive is a collection on images and documents chronicling the life of Nelson Mandela. You can search the archive according to the stages of Nelson Mandela's life and activism. In the archive you can read parts of Nelson Mandela's personal diaries.

A nice video to go along with the Nelson Mandela Digital Archive is Snag Learning's Life and Times: Nelson Mandela.

Applications for Education
The Nelson Mandela Digital Archives could be a good source of primary documents and images to use as part of lesson on apartheid in the context of 20th Century World History.

The Nelson Mandela Digital Archives is made possible in part by the work of Google's Cultural Institute. I learned about the new exhibit through the Official Google Blog.
