All the News That Fits: Liberia’s Blackboard Headlines by Lydia Polgreen - New York Times. This article, from 2006, has stuck with me ever since I read it. Though dated, could be good supplemental reading for 1984, Fahrenheit 451, or another book about communication. Could even tie in with African literature segment (Things Fall Apart, etc.) to help connect it to more present-day events that involve something more hopeful than AIDS, genocide, civil war, and ebola.
