Talks & Presentations – Growing Legends 16 Jun 2024 11:00

R90 - R100

South Africa has a long tradition of people who fought courageously with deeds, words and olive branches, to enable us to share this land in peace. We often think of Mandela’s political genius as unique: a mix of force, negotiation, charm and conciliation. But authors Nick Dall and Matthew Blackman will argue that this tradition grew from the rich political soils laid long before Mandela was born – and is still alive today.
From Moshoeshoe, Olive Schriener and Gandhi, to Cissie Gool, Sailor Malan, and Steve Biko, right through to Thuli Madonsela, the Mandela approach of combative conciliation makes South Africa almost exclusively unique.
