Bantu Migrations slideshow

I read up a little bit on the Bantu migrations in Africa last night.  I learned that these migrations from around 800 BC to 400 AD were one of the largest movements of people in the history of the world.

I learned that the Bantu peoples are divided into somewhere between 300-600 ethnic groups, and yet that certain things are in common between them.  This slideshow is an attempt to capture what I learned in only 30 minutes.

Is it perfect?  No.  Is it wrong in places? Probably.   But it’s a lot more than I ever learned in school, ever before.  And it’s more than these kids will learn from their textbook.
