More Description

Twenty years after the end of apartheid, a new generation is building a multiracial democracy in South Africa but remains mired in economic inequality and political conflict.
This spring, South Africa will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the fall of apartheid and the first free elections. Although the country has come far, frustration is growing as inequalities that once divided the races now grow within them. In "After Freedom," award-winning sociologist Katherine S. Newman and South African expert Ariane De Lannoy profile seven people--Black, White, "Coloured," and immigrant--to reveal what life is like in South Africa today. These on-the-ground portraits offer an intimate look at the rising generation of young people and explore what the complex political landscape means to the average person. "After Freedom" is a timely look at how the generation that came of age post-apartheid is grappling with a tenuous democracy in a globalized economy.
