Apartheid and the Cultural Boycott of South Africa

By: Bryan Deziel

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the end of apartheid in South Africa.  In conjunction with the upcoming performance by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, this presents an opportunity to remember and reflect on the era of apartheid and its legacy.  The Rebecca Crown Library has constructed a display on the first floor of the library featuring posters, photos and descriptions of the apartheid era and international anti-apartheid movement.  The display also features the role Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s collaboration on Paul Simon’s Graceland played in bringing the oppression of apartheid to the center of the international stage.  We invite you to stop by the display next time you are in the library and remember the struggle that was apartheid.

Visit the display on Crown Library’s first floor.
