Dr. Juliet V. García has been a member of the Ford Foundation Board of Trustees for more than a decade. This month, the Trustees travel to South Africa as part of their work, and Dr. García will be blogging the experience to share with friends and colleagues at home.
Ford Foundation Trustee N.R. Narayana Murthy, civil rights activist Albie Sachs, and Dr. Juliet V. GarcíaIn the evening, we attended the debut of a powerful film on the life and work of Albie Sachs called "Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa." Mr. Sachs spent his entire life as a white man in South Africa working with the African National Congress, Nelson Mandela and many, many other courageous people fighting apartheid while suffering severe personal injury. Mr. Sachs attended the debut of the film and was interviewed by Darren Walker, Ford Foundation President, after the film.
Witnessing that moment and learning of the intense struggle serves to transform all who listen and learn from inspired leadership.
