UCT, in association with the Chief Albert Luthuli Foundation, will host a special screening of the documentary RFK in the Land of Apartheid: A Ripple of Hope, on Wednesday 6 April. In the documentary, released in 2009, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold use archival footage and interviews in South Africa and the US to tell the story of Robert Kennedy's 1966 visit to South Africa. Kennedy's Day of Affirmation speech in Jameson Hall at UCT on 6 June that year is said to be one of his best known South African speeches. (Listen to a recording and read a transcript of that lecture here.) There will be a discussion with the filmmakers and other panellists after the UCT screening.
