Life and Times: Nelson Mandela is a film that’s available for free online. I just learned about it from the excellent blog, Free Technology For Teachers.

I’m adding the link to The Best Sites For Learning About Nelson Mandela.

It’s perfect timing, since our ninth-grade English classes will be starting a six-week unit on Mandela in late-January, and will be making a related field trip in February to San Francisco’s Museum of the African Diaspora.
