The Student Teachers Anti-Racism Society (STARS) promotes anti-racism education at the College of Education, University of Saskatchewan through the support of the College. We work collaboratively to understand, identify, and address individual and systemic racism and its interlocking forms of oppression based on gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion and other socially constructed categories. We believe that anti-racist and decolonizing education, when woven together, can create humanizing and emancipatory change for everyone.

RFK in the Land of Apartheid: A Ripple of Hope

Playing on PBS throughout September. It's worth watching.

Information about the documentary: http://rfksafilm.org/html/about.php
Video clip and ordering information: http://www.videoproject.com/rfkinlaofapr.html

Using never before seen archival footage, and interviews in South Africa and the United States, filmmakers Larry Shore and Tami Gold tell the unknown story of Robert Kennedy's 1966 visit to South Africa during the worst years of Apartheid. The film evokes the connections between the American Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Apartheid Movement in South Africa. The filmmakers find witness to this special moment in time through the sights and sounds of present day South Africa.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.                                                                                                                                   -Robert F Kennedy
