About this Event

The Activism of Nelson Mandela, Tuesday 29th October (Week 6), HG 147, 2-3pm.

Come along for this exciting free talk by Sarah Slator (Oxford Brookes University). Before his sentence to life imprisonment in 1964, Nelson Mandela was a leading member of the African National Congress, co-founding its armed wing Umkhonto we Sizwe. Vocal in his opposition to apartheid before the ANC was made illegal in South Africa, he remained active when working underground, leaving the country to tour abroad and gather support against the apartheid government. In this talk spanning Mandela’s early career, Sarah will detail his rise to prominence, both within South Africa and across the world.

Everyone is welcome, so please do come along. Please contact Dr Anne-Marie Evans (a.evans@yorksj.ac.uk) if you have any questions.
