Youth programme: Growing up under apartheid

Nelson Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 marked the beginning of the end for the apartheid regime and several centuries of brutal oppression for South Africa’s black population. To many young people, who had never known any other system, this was a big transformation.

What was it like to be a child or young person in a country with a strict colour bar? Professor Njabulo Ndebele, head of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, converses with pupils from Rothaugen lower secondary school.

The event is for invited lower secondary school pupils only. 

The conversation will be in English.
