On Dec. 5, the world lost its greatest leader and statesman and South Africa lost the father of its nation. With the passing of Nelson Mandela, the questions on the minds of many people is what does the future hold for South Africa in the wake of Mandela’s passing. Is there an “unfinished” freedom struggle there and why is South Africa today the most economically unequal country in the world, 20 years after Mandela became the country’s first democratically elected President?

To address these and related questions, The Institute of the Black World 21st Century(IBW) has assembled an outstanding panel of intellectuals and activists to engage in a free, public discussion on Friday, Dec. 20th at Washington’s famed Busboys & Poets on the corner of 14th and V Streets in Northwest DC. The program begins at 7 pm in the Langston Room and will be Webcast on the IBW site.
