A Part of the Whole: A Conversation with Denis Goldberg - The Nelson Mandela Lecture Series

Denis Goldberg is a social campaigner from South Africa who actively worked against apartheid. Goldberg was arrested and tried in the Rivonia Trial alongside Nelson Mandela, being imprisoned for 22 years before his release on the condition of his exile from South Africa. After the South African transition to democracy in 1994, Goldberg founded Health Education and Reconstruction Training (H.E.A.R.T.), a nongovernmental organization that supports local initiatives aimed at improving health, education and reconstruction in contemporary South Africa.
