Katherine Newman – South Africa 20 Years After Apartheid


Katherine Newman

This weekend, South Africa celebrates Freedom Day, its annual commemoration of the historic April 27, 1994 election that brought Nelson Mandela to power and ended apartheid. But how has South Africa fared in the 20 years since it became a multiracial democracy? Johns Hopkins sociologist Katherine Newman joins us to discuss the question and her new book, with co-author Ariane De Lannoy, “After Freedom: The Rise of the Post-Apartheid Generation in Democratic South Africa”.
