A lifetime of collecting books, now what?

I have been collecting books on Africa—all parts, all kinds—for 50 years. I'd love to find a home for some of them. Ideally this home would be with a person who welcomes all genres and points-of-view. I have some original African Writers Series titles and some coffee table titles. I know that neither libraries nor African Outreach centers want these books. What to do?

Seeking Film/Movie/Documentary Suggestions on Pre-Apartheid History in South Africa

I'm looking for suggestions on any historically-based films that cover South Africa prior to apartheid. Beyond "The Life and Times of Sarah Baartman"  and the Zulu-based material, does anyone have suggestions on film that covers this period? Film that explores the eighteenth or nineteenth centuries would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
