and then at the same venue a documentary showing and celebration of South African Women's day on August 9th:

 

Let’s get together

We’re hosting a new event, and we’d love to see you there.

To mark South African Women’s Day 2022, we are screening the ground-breaking film “Murder in Paris”, a political crime thriller that traces the motives for the assassination of Anti-Apartheid activist Dulcie September.

Our commissioned artist, Nefateri Asantewa (pictured above right), will be exhibiting and talking about her work "South African Flag", which gives reference to the over 20 000 women who took part in the 1956 Women’s March to Pretoria, South Africa, celebrating their resilience and contribution to the struggle and provokes thinking about ongoing inequalities.

Attendees will also be able to view the exhibition, Pride Belongs to the People: Images of Soweto Pride on display at Newington Green Meeting House, supported by The Leverhulme Trust and the School of Social Sciences at the University of Westminster.

The audience will be invited to participate in a conversation on the role and impact of women in the fight against apartheid. Together, we'll explore the stories, histories and voices of former generations to inspire future ones.

6-8 pm Tuesday 9th August
