In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s Release from Prison, our organization held a conversation on Race, Politics and Immigration with four native South Africans who now live in America. They discussed their experiences both in their home country and the United States.
While, we live in a time were Race and Immigration are at the forefront of many conversations it is important that we reflect on the teachings, learning and legacy of President Mandela. In hopes that we may bring with us ideas and strategy to achieve justice.
We had the honor to present these amazing individuals: Mr. Clive Hoffman, a Jew, Professor Movindri Reddy, an Indian, Pastor Kelvin Sauls, a Black, and Pastor Rudolph van Graan, an Afrikaner. The panel discussion was moderated by the Rev. Dan Romero, an immigration attorney and former Conference Minister of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ.
