It is Black History Month but do we get taught everything in schools?  Are things better reserved for personal judgment rather than public knowledge?  How much do we really know about the key issues on hand?  In this ear-opening episode, Rajan travels to South Africa to revisit the subject of apartheid and the subsequent dramatic impact it had on people of Indian origin. He meets with the remarkable Omar Essack to learn more about his personal journey from growing up in apartheid with limiting career possibilities, to rising and running one of the country’s leading media companies, as they delve into the horrors of the past and the shifting sands of the present and how identity is still perceived in the country.  This is the history lesson, you needed to learn.

One response to “The “hidden” apartheid they didn’t teach you – Made in South Africa”

  1. Drcricket says:

    Really interesting account of the life of Asians during apartheid. I’ve only heard stories but Omar allows us to explore the psychological impact of such an unfair regime. He is an inspiration and discusses how such a negative upbringing through his environment can used as a positive to achieve ones life goals. Agree with Rajan definitely requires no editing !!
