It is the largest history and educational project on the African continent with over 6 million users.
The site was established to popularise a new history, he explains.
You need to be able to reflect on your past. Make sure people understand the complexity of every moment in history and not just the victor's point of view.Omar Badsha, CEO - SA History Online
