Race and Reconciliation in Post-Apartheid South Africa
November 11, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm$20
This lecture is presented as part of the “Humanities in Action” series organized by the Program in the Humanities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The apartheid regime in South Africa came to a resounding close with the election of Nelson Mandela to the presidency in May 1994. Since that time, South Africa has rejoined the concert of nations as a strategic and trade partner with relations across the globe. While this transition is rightfully celebrated, racial tensions persist in the country, and reconciliation has been a long and arduous journey. This lecture by Lauren Jarvis, new to UNC this semester, will offer an opportunity to learn more about the successes and lingering issues in the new South Africa.
Jarvis is an assistant professor of history at UNC.
