Today on Your Call: How has the anti-apartheid movement changed the struggle for justice?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll discuss the legacy of Nelson Mandela, the leader of the African National Congress and the global movement against apartheid. What is Mandela’s legacy worldwide – and right here in the Bay Area? How did the anti-apartheid movement become one of the most significant and critical movements of the 20th century? What can we learn from that movement? What memories do you have of Nelson Mandela,  and what has he meant to you?  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Pedro Noguera, professor of Education at New York University
