Description

Khulu Radebe worked to make his native South Africa a vibrant democracy for more than four decades. He began his contributions by helping to plan what became the June 16th student uprising, fought against the oppressive apartheid regime while imprisoned on Robben Island for six years, and traveled the world spreading the anti-apartheid and pro-democracy message as a member of Amanda Cultural Ensemble. This session will place Radebe's actions in the context of South Africa's emerging democracy and reflect on that nation's actions in light of the current authoritarian direction in which many countries appear to be going at the moment.

LIB 100/201 approved and pizza will be provided.

Winter 2019 events will be held in the Mary Idema Pew Library Multipurpose Room on Wednesdays at 6:00pm.
