Douglas Foster, Author; Associate Professor, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University will discuss South Africa and Mandela.

In recent months, much has been written about Nelson Mandela’s remarkable life, from rural villager to leader of a guerrilla movement to prisoner to president. But what of the next generation of South Africans – half the population is under 25 – in whose name the liberation struggle was fought? In the lived experience of Nelson Mandela’s grandchildren and other young South Africans we explore the “living legacy.”
