Have You Heard From Johannesburg: Stories from the Global Anti-Apartheid Movement is an Emmy Award-winning documentary series featuring seven episodes, produced and directed by Connie Field, chronicling the history of the global anti-apartheid movement that took on South Africa’s entrenched apartheid regime and its international supporters.
Rethinking Schools wrote about Part 4: From Selma to Soweto:
Have you heard from Johannesburg? tells the inspirational story of the anti-apartheid movement in the United States. Too many of us seem to have forgotten the African American-led grassroots movement that transformed U.S. foreign policy, and contributed to comprehensive sanctions against the apartheid regime. This is a film that trumpets the message: People make history. Although the film starts slowly and begins with a PBS-like talking-head feel, when it launches into the story of the Free South Africa Movement, it offers viewers a stirring lesson in the power of social justice activism.
Written by Ken Chowder, Jon Else, Connie Field, Gregory Scharpen, Jim DeVinney, and Sharon Wood.
Produced by Clarity Films.
