Have You Heard from Johannesburg?
30 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I teach ethics at the University of North Dakota and this series by Connie Field is exceptional. I use two episodes, "The Road to Resistance" and "From Selma to Soweto". When the course begins my students generally know very little about apartheid. A few have seen movies like "invictus" but they still don't understand how violent and dehumanizing apartheid was. I was fortunate enough to visit South Africa several years ago and learn first hand what happened there. I have been able to bring that experience into the classroom also.

Field's work is well researched and contains a lot of truths that many Americans would rather not hear about.

We could apply the "Truth and Reconciliation" approach to some of our own problems - especially the Native American issues which remain unresolved.
