Stop by the Brooklyn Central Library for their first film of their seven-part documentary series Have You Heard from Johannesburg? In 1948, South Africa institutes apartheid, a system of segregation that infiltrates every aspect of life. The Sharpeville Massacre shocks the world, and Nelson Mandela and other leaders of the African National Congress (ANC) are jailed. While it is recommended that the films be seen in order, it is not required for comprehension of the series.
