“The year 2019 marked the 25th anniversary of the democracy of South Africa. In 1994, Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first black president and his nation a free country. The segregation system of apartheid ended, but the aftermath of the system still endures 25 years later.
Mandela had high hopes for the youth. The children born in the years right after apartheid ended are now young adults: the born-free generation for whom racial segregation is a thing of the past. They were to be the face of a new, free, and successful South Africa.”
