The educator's guide, created by the organization Facing History and Ourselves, features activities on identity, reconciliation, and other related topics. The guide for organizations and study groups features essays by New York Times journalist Bob Herbert and Alex Kotlowitz, author of the best selling THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER. Readers will also find profiles from the series, background on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and a community workshop designed to promote dialogue and personal growth. Created by Thirteen/WNET, the guide will be distributed through organizational partners. To receive quantities of either guide, send a detailed plan for using them to Robert Miller, Thirteen/WNET, 450 West 33rd Street, New York, NY 10001.
