Informed by first-hand knowledge gained as a Fulbright Scholar in Cape Town, South Africa, Dr. Stacey Nickson will discuss the impact of current politics, business, and race on South Africa today. Dr. Nickson's presentation will explore whether the post-Mandela politics of the African National Congress (ANC) and the policies of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) are driving South Africa towards Mandela's vision or draining the "rainbow nation" of its vitality and viability.
Co-sponsored with the Ralph Brown Draughon Library and Special Collections and Archives Department.
