Abstract

This three member panel explores and critiques the persistence of White Supremacy along with the tragedy of Western notions of hope within the prevailing conditions of xenophobia and racial violence in Post-Obama America. We juxtapose these harsh realities by drawing strength and resilience from the lived experience of Nelson Mandela as an exemplar of critical remembrance and indigenous views of hope drawn from his cultural upbringing amongst the Ubantu people of 19th and 20th century South Africa.
