Stephanie J. Urdang reads from Mapping My Way Home: Activism, Nostalgia, and the Downfall of Apartheid South Africa

Stephanie J. Urdang reads from Mapping My Way Home, a memoir of fierce witness, where life, love, death, family, history, memory, loss, and uncertainty are deeply explored. Raised by socialists in Cape Town, South Africa, Urdang developed a deep hatred for the apartheid regime. Working as a feminist journalist, she wrote about apartheid’s demise of and the victory over Portuguese colonialism in Africa. Later years found her trekking through Guinea-Bissau’s liberated zones; witnessing the impact of the South African-provoked conflict in Mozambique; and actively participating in the forceful divestment movement in the U.S. Gloria Jacobs (former editor-in-chief of Ms. magazine and former Executive Director of Feminist Press) will introduce/be in conversation with Stephanie.
