    New H-Net Network:
    We are pleased to announce the official launch of H-AfrTeach,
    a new H-Net network considering the possibilities and problems
    involved in teaching about Africa.

    With the help of our subscribers' advice and contributions,
    H-AfrTeach will build a website for teachers at all levels of
    education. We plan to provide grade-appropriate resources and
    information about Africa, as well as support for innovative
    teaching about the entire continent.

    The H-AfrTeach webpage may be found at:

    We invite you to visit the site and send us your reactions,
    suggestions, and contributions at <>.
