23 February 2018: Putting Discomfort at the Heart of Comfort
In our fifth episode support by the Ford Foundation, Jillian speaks with Axolile Notywala and Mandisa Dyantyi, the Co-Directors of the Social Justice Coalition. SJC is a Cape Town-based organisation that works to advance the constitutional rights to life, dignity, equality, freedom and safety for all South Africans - but particularly those living in townships and informal settlements. Ax and Mandisa are passionate activists and leaders addressing issues of inequality in Cape Town, South Africa, and the world. They call themselves “The Terrible Two” but there’s nothing terrible about them: young, black, educated and driven by a deep sense of righteous purpose - they are South Africa’s greatest hope and representative of its most profound dilemma. How do you escape poverty and discrimination? And what happens when you return home and try to help others do the same?

Insightful and Important
A new show that delves into the hard conversations facing us today. Insightful topics about masculinity, feminism, race, power and privilege. So important! Reminds me of the work from On Being Studios. Looking forward to hearing and learning more.
