Blogging on human rights in South Africa

On May 22, 2011, nine Simmons students and I will depart Boston for a three-week tour of South Africa that will take us from Johannesburg to Durban and Cape Town. Our purpose is to look into the state of human rights there, two decades after the walls of one of the worst systems of racial domination ever constructed--apartheid--began to come down and 17 years after South Africa's first ever multi-racial, democratic elections. We'll share our impressions with you through this blog.

Stay tuned!

--Dan Connell, Professor of Journalism and African Politics
