Book Talk: Ruth First + Joe Slovo In The War To End Apartheid

Distinguished scholar sheds light on an under-explored chapter in apartheid

Ruth First and Joe Slovo were the perfect enemies of the white police state in South Africa. Communists, scholars, and parents, their struggle against apartheid was uncompromising – Joe even directed much of the work carried out by the infamous Umkhonto we Sizwe. Join Alan Wieder (professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina) as he discusses his new book and research on the couple, elaborating on their efforts, complexities, and contradictions.
