Grass Roots Rebellion
What means does the layman have to resist oppressive laws and legislation?
South African writer and researcher Richard Conyngham’s graphic history All Rise – Resistance and Rebellion in South Africa 1910–1948 provides a glimpse of rage and rebellion in South Africa even before the state adopted the racist apartheid regime.
In conversation with journalism professor Kristin Skare Orgeret, Conyngham will discuss his research in South African court archives where he uncovered these stories. They will also discuss Conyngham’s unusual choice of medium – the graphic novel – and his close collaboration with six South African artists and illustrators.
