Presented by the University of the Western Cape, this session will explore how Apartheid, the racist-capitalist system of structural oppression, had foregrounded race as a signifier of difference, promoted brutal repression and disenfranchisement, and the oppression of all people not classified as “white.” It will examine impact on the daily lives and the struggles for the reclamation of dignity and identity and strategies of psychological liberation. The session will share the legacy of that racism and its impact on contemporary South Africa, as well as methodologies of resistance and their reliance on discourses of black resistance, particularly in the creative arts.

This session will be held on Zoom.
