Sisonke Msimang to Deliver 2019 Nelson Mandela Lecture in Amsterdam
06 Nov 2018
PEN SA Board Member Sisonke Msimang will deliver the 2019 Nelson Mandela Lecture in Amsterdam on 10 February 2019 at the city’s International Theatre.
South African writer and activist Sisonke Msimang is an independent and outspoken voice in the debate on colour, privilege and gender. Her opinions, published in The Guardian and The Washington Post amongst others, attract growing international audiences. Last year Msimang’s first memoir: Always Another Country, about her youth in exile and return to a democratic and complex South Africa, was published. Her new book, The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela, will be on the shelves from early November.
Sisonke Msimang presented the first Soweto TedX Lecture under the intriguing title: Mad at Mandela. On February 10, 2019 she will deepen her quest for the meaning of Nelson Mandela’s work and life for the here and now.
