You're invited to join Mark Gevisser in conversation with Wilhelm Verwoerd and Prof Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela on conscience, courage, intergenerational trauma and transformation at Mesh Club, Rosebank, Johannesburg.

Verwoerd, an academic at the University of Stellenbosch, is the grandson of Hendrik Verwoerd, who was widely regarded as the architect of the apartheid regime.

Gobodo-Madikizela is the research chair in studies in historical trauma and transformation at the same university.

Mark Gevisser’s Monthly Review appears every four weeks in Business Day and is followed by a public discussion.

The event is free to attend but it is essential to book your seat – details below.
