People Power is a multi-media resource that fosters student exploration of how engaged citizens change the world. All six sections are common-core connected and also available on www.civicvoices.org.

In section 4, students study national movements that have ended dictatorship, segregation and violence. Examples of iconic struggles allow for examination of the effectiveness of nonviolent strategies. This Country Briefing Kit contains videos, primary sources, and background materials on the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. Similar resources are provided for 7 other popular movements.
