Discussion of 'Apartheid and the Making of a Black Psychologist'

Wednesday, 24 August, 2016 - 13:00

WiSER, the Department of Psychology, and Wits University Press invite you to an engaged discussion of

Chabani Manganyi’s new book

APARTHEID AND THE MAKING OF A
BLACK PSYCHOLOGIST

Speakers: Garth Stevens, Hlonipha Mokoena and Catherine Burns with the author in attendance.

“Prof Manganyi’s thoughtful and meticulous account of what it has meant
to become South Africa’s first black psychologist is particularly relevant
for our times. Sadly, the issues of violence, injustice and trauma are still
with us. Manganyi’s work offers the possibility that a different legacy
could prevail – that of a commitment to truth, and a clear vision of what
it means to value the humanity of others, as well as of oneself.”
— Shayleen Peekes, psychologist 

“Chabani Manganyi is that rare thing in South Africa - a genuine and
independent intellectual.”
— Tim Couzens, author
