The Best Multimedia Celebrating Mubarak’s Downfall

I’ve previously posted a very popular “The Best…” list titled The Best Sites For Learning About The Protests In Egypt. Because today’s resignation of President Mubarak is such an important event, and potentially an important event in world history, I thought I’d create a special “The Best…” list just recognizing today.

By chance, I heard about his resignation a few minutes after it occurred, and was able to show live video to my ninth-grade students. We’re studying Nelson Mandela and the struggle of black South Africans to be free, so it was a natural connection.

Here are my choices for The Best Multimedia Celebrating Mubarak’s Downfall:

Before I start sharing multimedia links, here’s a very useful article from MSNBC titled “Mideast nations brace for Egypt spillover.” It gives a good overview of what might happen next.

  1. Hello,
    I’m very interested in what has just happened in Egypt as well as
    what there is to say about South Africa and, of course, Nelson Mandela. I’ve been in both countries and have written articles on my blog about them.
    I would very much appreciate your giving a look at my latest article about Egypt.
