Friday, April 25, 2014

This spring, South Africa will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of apartheid and the first free elections. Although the country has come far, the inequalities that once divided the races now grow within them. In After Freedom: The Rise of the Post-Apartheid Generation in Democratic South Africa, award-winning sociologist Katherine S. Newman and Ariane De Lannoy profile seven people—black, white, “coloured,” and immigrant—to reveal what life is like in South Africa today.
