Oliver Tambo "Have you Heard from Johannesburg" in Conversation with Justice Albie Sachs
You are invited to Oliver Tambo: Have you heard from Johannesburg. Through this powerful film, viewers are given insights into the life, ethos and politics of OR TAMBO, the leader of the African National Congress, who was instrumental in bringing an end to apartheid. Join us for this entry into the Emmy Award winning series.
JUSTICE ALBIE SACHS joined the anti-apartheid movement at 17, and found his footing early with a law degree, representing many African National Congress activists imprisoned, tortured, and sentenced to death for their political activities. In 1966, he went into exile and in 1988, he was the victim of a car bomb in Mozambique. He not only survived, but emerged as a key figure in drafting South Africa’s new democratic constitution. In 1994, Nelson Mandela appointed him to the newly established Constitutional Court. He is a 2018 Scholar-in-Residence at the Sorensen Center for International Peace & Justice.
