Stephanie J. Urdang’s Boston Book Launch – Mapping My Way Home: Activism, Nostalgia, and the Downfall of Apartheid South Africa

December 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The memoir is a must read for all of us who are connected to South Africa, the struggle against apartheid and the ongoing support for South Africans through Shared Interest or other avenues. It is a beautifully written page turner that captures the events on the international stage that contributed to the demise of apartheid. Stephanie’s book reflects the importance and immediacy of the years leading up to the release of Nelson Mandela. It portrays the spirit and sacrifices of those engaged in the fight for justice, while recognizing with honesty and clarity the disappointments that followed in the post-apartheid era.
Speakers include:
  • The Honorable Margaret H. Marshall, Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts
  • Stephanie J. Urdang, Author
RSVP by November 26th.
