Ahmed Kathrada should be trending on Jozi’s hashtag’s as its this stalwart’s 83rd birthday today and he get’s the freedom of the city today.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a seminar at the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation in Lenasia when a visiting professor, Bernard Lafayette, who shared his experiences of the Civil Rights Movement, inspired us to keep the flame of civic activism alive in South African communities and keep nonviolent protest active against the unjust system.
I’m looking forward to the collaboration that comes from the networking with different organisations there. How would you like to be involved? Please leave a comment, sign up to my newsletter, or share this with your friends and followers.
