Images of a Communist Past

A cross street in Maputo, the capital city. A few other notable figures that have streets named after them: Karl Marx, Freidrich Engels, Salvador Allende, and Mao Ze Dong.

This is the secondary school in Namaacha where the education volunteer training sessions were held and where we conducted a two-week long Model School with students from the community.
The government that took over after the Portuguese were driven out in 1975 was very socialist.
Here are a couple of images that capture this history.
