Renowned educational writer Cari Ladd presents a powerful lesson plan to accompany Mugabe and the White African that asks students to study Mugabe’s land reform in Zimbabwe and compare it to the United States’ history of discriminatory policies and practices related to property ownership. Students will brainstorm steps to addressing these historic, race-based injustices in their own communities and explain how one such strategy would affect them on a personal level.

For background information on Zimbabwe and Mugabe’s land reform, teachers can refer to the POV Discussion Guide. To search all POV lesson plans by “issue” or “topic,” please visit POV Educators.
