Amplifying anti-racist voices
Time: 11h30

The struggle against racism is not a one-time event. Although apartheid has been abolished in a formal sense, its legacy remains a defining feature of the South African experience. The inequalities we see today – from infant mortality, life expectancy, digital connectivity, and spatial inequality — are deeply anchored in South Africa’s past and have not been fully undone by its democratic transition.

 A critical step to addressing the challenges faced is the adoption of anti-racist attitudes. Unlike non-racialism or “colour-blindness”, anti-racism requires us to actively dismantle racism wherever we find it - be it our law, our institutions, or even our personal social interactions. This way, anti-racism envisages a whole-of-society transformation that targets racism’s broader, institutional manifestations, as well as its granular expressions on the individual level.
