UJP Activist: RFK in the Land of Apartheid


When: Thursday, November 3, 2011, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Where: Cambridge Public Library - Central Square • 45 Pearl St. • Cambridge

 The WILPF Monthly Peace and Justice Film Series at the Cambridge Public
Library in Central Sq.

Using never before seen archival footage, and interviews in South Africa and
the United States, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold tell the unkown story of
Robert Kennedy's 1966 visit to South Africa  during the worst years of
apartheid.  The film evokes the connections between the American Civil Rights
Movement and the Anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa. The filmakers find
witness to this special moment in time through the sights and sounds of present
day South Aftica. A high point of the film is Kennedy's meeting with one of the
unknown giants of African  history - the banned President of the Afican
National Congress, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Chief Albert Lutuli,
living under house arrest in a remore rural area.  The film travels with
Robert Kennedy to Soweto, South Afica's largest black township, where he meets
thousands of people and gives voice to chief Lutuli's silenced call for a free
South Africa.


An Extended Discussion will follow the film. FREE Parking Nearby

Refreshments will be served.

In all its stages, from the production of weapons through combat to cleanup and
restoration, war entails actions that pollute land, air, and water, destroy
biodiversity, and drain natural resources. Yet the environmental damage
occasioned by war and preparation for war is routinely underestimated,
underreported, even ignored. The environment remains war's "silent casualty."

Sponsored by Women's  International League for Peace and Freedom andThe
Cambridge Peace Commission.
