The Legacy of the 1976 Soweto Riots

On February 24, 2017, Forum for Africa Studies hosted a roundtable panel featuring H.E. Faith Doreen Radebe (Ambassador of South Africa), Thabo Rametsi (Principle actor in the new film, Kalushi), and Ashleigh Harris (Dept of English, Uppsala University).  The discussions centered around the 1976 Soweto Riots, the effects of the riots on the events of the following years leading up to independence, and the current day legacy of these events in South Africa.  A short trailer for the film, Kalushi: the story of Solomon Mahlangu was also viewed prior to the roundtable discussions.
