Race and reconciliation in South Africa
A generation after Nelson Mandela walked free, race now seems as dominant an issue today in South Africa as it was in the darkest years of apartheid.
Fourteen years after liberation and sixty years since the beginning of what was then 'apartheid', this documentary series from the BBC World Series explores and uncovers the extent to which race still plays a part in everyday life for those living in South Africa.
Audrey Brown meets South Africans from all walks of life to find out whether recent racial incidents have revealed cracks in what has been dubbed the miracle of 'the rainbow nation'.
In the face confrontation and controversy, she asks difficult questions about how different South African communities view one another.
- Can issues of race and reconciliation comfortably sit side-by-side?
- What do South Africans really think about one another?
- How do you get people to engage on the issue?
- And can racism ever be eradicated there?
