Welcome Reception for Thulani Madondo

Join the Cal Alumni Association (CAA) and the Center for African Studies as we celebrate esteemed humanitarian Thulani Madondo.

Madondo is the co-founder and executive director of Kliptown Youth Program, a South African youth development organization created to help young people from the informal settlement of Kliptown move out of poverty.

During this dynamic evening, this extraordinary activist will draw out themes of reconciliation and forgiveness as he reflects on living through the Freedom Charter, the Truth and Reconciliation Hearings, and the transition to democracy. We look forward to welcoming you at this thought-provoking event. CAA’s Executive Director, Cloey Hewlett; the Director of the Center for African Studies, Martha Saavedra; and members of the Black Alumni Club will also offer remarks.
