All Rise: Resistance and Rebellion in South Africa

In this second installment of the 2022 Global Issues Through Literature Series (GILS), educators will convene to discuss Richard Conyngham's All Rise: Resistance and Rebellion in South Africa, a graphic anthology telling six true stories of resistance by marginalized South Africans against the country's colonial government in the years leading up to Apartheid.

GILS is a reading group for K-16 educators to literary texts from a global perspective. Content specialists present the work and its context, and participants brainstorm innovative pedagogical practices for incorporating the text and its themes into the curriculum. This year’s theme is Graphic Novels in Global Context: Social Justice Through Illustration and Text.
