February 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
Sandra Klopper, Professor Emerita of Art History and former Deputy Vice Chancellor, University of Cape Town will discuss the symbolic importance the statue of Rhodes played in fueling and focusing debates related to historical injustices at UCT. These culminated in demands across different campuses in South Africa, the UK and elsewhere for a radical de-racialization and decolonization of all universities and their Eurocentric curricula.
