Apartheid South Africa: Then & Now

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm

University Student Union, Lakeview Terrace Room, 2nd Floor

Although Nelson Mandela was the most well-known and universally recognized anti-apartheid crusader, there were several other unsung heroes who, in their own small ways contributed to the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa. Bishop Mackenzie is one such person and will reflect on and share his personal stories in this lecture. Born and raised in Cape Town South Africa, Bishop Mackenzie used his ministry as Bishop of Cape Town from 1988-2002 to help put an end to the scourge of apartheid and bring about racial reconciliation following the election of Nelson Mandela in 1994 as the first black president of South Africa.
