Lessons From Apartheid: How Americans Can Join Across Racial Differences with Manju Soni

M. J. Soni is a former eye surgeon turned author. Originally from South Africa, she now lives in Mystic, Connecticut. In this talk, Ms. Soni will give a brief overview of her experiences growing up in South Africa under the system of racial separation called Apartheid, drawing parallels with America's own past and present experiences with racism. This is especially important as the recent Black Lives Matter protests sweeping through the nation have made many Americans question their own beliefs and long held assumptions about race and privilege in America.
