    Beverley, Naidoo. Burn My Heart. New York City: HarperCollins, 2007. Print.
    Karimi, Joseph. “How the Mau Mau Lost Battle for Land.” Africa News Service 30 May 2000: n. pag. Global Issues in Context. Web. 22 Oct. 2009. <http://find.galegroup.com//‌infomark.do?contentSet=IAC-Documents&docType=IAC&type=retrieve&tabID=T004&prodId=GIC&docId=A62362122&userGroupName=cant48040&version=1.0&searchType=AdvancedSearchForm&source=gale>. This article was very helpful because it showed things that happened in the past. These different events led to the development of the Mau Mau.
    “Kenya: De-Oathing the Kilcuyu.” Time. CNN, 23 Nov. 1962. Web. 23 Oct. 2009. <http://www.time.com////‌,9171,829477-1,00.html>. I used this article because it gave me the information that I needed to understand what the natives had to do when they first took the Mau Mau oath.
    “Mau Mau.” Infoplease. N.p., 2007. Web. 27 Oct. 2009. <http://www.infoplease.com///‌A0832268.html>. Even though this article was short, it gave me much information. Though the information didn’t go into detail, I learned many new things, and I used that to dig deeper into my research.
    “The Mau-Mau.” Unexplained Stuff. N.p., 2008. Web. 27 Oct. 2009. <http://www.unexplainedstuff.com/Societies/Mau-Mau.html>. This article pretty such gave me all the information that I needed to write a good essay. It made it easy to understand who were the Mau Mau and their purpose. I also liked how it focused on the Mau Mau, and what their society was like.
    Singh, Malkiat. “The Mau Mau Movement.” Africa within. N.p., 1986. Web. 27 Oct. 2009. <http://www.africawithin.com///_mau.htm>. I was happy I found this article because it gave me a few of the achievements of the Mau Mau Movement.
