Join us for an insightful and captivating virtual tour of South Africa, followed by fun quiz, light refreshments, in-depth group discussion, and more!

“South Africa: a Rainbow People” provides a historical-social-political window into post apartheid South Africa. Visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela and other African freedom fighters were imprisoned. Visit St. George’s Cathedral where Desmond Tutu served as Anglican Archbishop and whose non-violent activism challenged apartheid. Visit the Anti-Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. Experience the African Townships of Langa (Cape Town) and Soweto (Johannesburg). Experience the Boers Great Trek as you drive through the high veldt. Visit the “Lucky Pot Holes” where the discovery of a reef of gold created the metropolis of Johannesburg. Learn the human costs of apartheid and the remarkable ability of Nelson Mandela to reconcile with his enemies.
Presenters Arnelle and Dick Hall are educators, world travelers and videographers welcome you to this fun-filled evening of celebrating South African cultural achievements and heritage.
