On May 14, sixteen Truman students will leave Chicago for Cape Town, South Africa, and
the excitement is building! We have spent the last semester reading about
and discussing South Africa's history, politics, economy, race, class
and gender inequalities, and human rights struggles. We have learned a
few Xhosa and Afrikaans greetings, and begun work on research projects
relevant to our internship placements. As soon as final exams are over,
we will embark on our South African adventure!
