HAVE YOU HEARD FROM JOHANNESBURG:
A Premiere Film Screening
Join us and watch this new entry into the Emmy Award-winning series Have You Heard From Johannesburg and hear the untold story of Oliver "OR" Tambo—the man behind the release of Nelson Mandela and the end of apartheid in South Africa. Followed by a reception hosted by Shared Interest with special guest and director Connie Field.
Described as one of the world’s greatest statesmen, his strategy to the international community to isolate and sanction the Apartheid regime created the most globalized human rights struggle of the 20th century. Regarded as a terrorist in the West, he was hunted by the South African government’s assassins. He narrowly escaped death at their hands, and succeeded in leading the overthrow of apartheid and fathered the new constitution of a democratic South Africa.
