Don’t miss the virtual book launch of The Rise and Fall of the ANC Youth League by Rebone Tau (9 Sep)
More about the book!
Join CNA and Penguin Random House SA for the virtual launch of The Rise and Fall of the ANC Youth League by Rebone Tau.
The Rise and Fall of the ANC Youth League explores the radicalising role played by its early leaders, such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and OR Tambo; the formation of the ANC Youth and Students Section in exile, first led by Thabo Mbeki; the return from exile in the 1990s and the leadership of Peter Mokaba; the controversies around the appointment of Julius Malema and his subsequent sacking; and the absence of Youth League leadership in the #FeesMustFall movement and current South African politics.
It also considers the role that the Youth League should play in the future.
Rebone will be in conversation with activist and author Dr Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh.
Date: Wednesday, 9 September 2020
