Postcolonialism

Today is August 6. On this day in 1945, the United States dropped “Little Boy,” the nation’s first atomic bomb used in combat, on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of penicillin, was born on this day in 1881. It’s the anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, which President Lyndon Johnson signed into law on this day in 1965. Finally, this is Bolivian Independence Day

So today seems like an appropriate time to post this reading on postcolonialism along with the comprehension worksheet that accompanies it.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
