Apartheid's Future in South Africa and the United States:
Signs of Convergence

a panel discussion with Peter Marcuse, Mzwanele Mayekiso,
and Ron Shiffman

Friday, December 1 at 7:30 pm


Legal apartheid was abolished five years ago in South Africa and
the ANC government faces enormous problems in erasing its
vestiges. In the U.S., slavery was abolished over 130 years ago,
yet problems of segregation and inequality persist in continually
changing forms. Is it possible that patterns in the two countries
will converge?

Focusing on developments affecting major urban centers, South
African civic movement leader Mzwanele Mayekiso, Columbia
University professor Peter Marcuse, and New York City Planning
Commissioner Ron Shiffman will discuss the forces influencing the
outcome in South Africa and possible parallels in this country.

Admission is $6.
