Raymond Uren memorial lecture tomorrow

2017-06-28 06:02

THE Northern Areas People Development Initiative (NAPDI) will present the Second Annual Raymond Uren Memorial tomorrow in the Main Hall of the Gelvandale Sport Grounds.

The keynote speech will be delivered by well-known University of Johannesburg academic, author and long-time community activist, Dr Ashwin Desai.

This event is jointly organised by Napdi as well as NMMU’s Centre for the Advancement of Non Racialism and Democracy (Canrad).

NAPDI trustee Michael Barry said Desai’s topic “Decolonising the Curriculum, Liberating the Imagination: A Provocation” will hopefully give impetus to the current debate around revisiting the content of programmes offered by most of our higher education institutions.

“The sporting fraternity is also looking forward to Desai sharing his thoughts on transformation in sport,” Barry said.

The lecture is open to the public and community members are urged to contact the NAPDI office on 041 457 1422 to secure the last remaining seats. Proceedings start at 6pm.

The NAPDI trustees will work closely with the Gelvandale Community Policing Forum to ensure that the parking area is secure.
