Tuesday, February 17,2015 “Songs for Khwesi” with Refilwe Nkomo and special guest Antonio David Lyons

4:30-5:30 p.m. 5511 Haven Hall (DAAS Lemuel Johnson Center)

Please join us for a special performance of a work-in-progress choreopoem by visiting artist Refilwe Nkomo which will be followed by a discussion/dialogue. The piece deals with the issues surrounding the South African case of President Jacob Zuma accused of rape by “Khwesi” a young woman who tested positive for HIV, that ended with an acquittal for Zuma. We will discuss violence against women and men’s roles in preventing rape culture. The discussion will be facilitated by Refilwe Nkomo, who has worked with NGOs in South Africa focusing on gender and health,  and Antonio David Lyons, who is performing “We Are Here” across campus throughout the month. http://www.pambazuka.net/en/category/letters/33434
