South Africa: Overcoming Apartheid

Interview Segment

Ntombizandile Tshaballa interviewed by Kim Nates and Nicole Brisbois
July 24, 2006 Johannesburg, South Africa.


"I realized how much I had been carrying the baggage of being discriminated against - I really felt that I didn't belong, I didn't have the right to sit on a lovely porch that overlooks the beach." [4:31]

Zed Tshaballa tells how a personal experience in Ghana revealed how much she had internalized the oppression of apartheid. This convinced her to become a trainer on issues of diversity in order to help herself and others get over the internalized feelings of discrimination and hatred and write a new script for relations among people of different races in South Africa.
