Prison to peace: a life in letters

Researcher for the Nelson Mandela Foundation and author Sahm Venter is visiting Whittier College to speak to students about living under apartheid, the life of Nelson Mandela, and the letters that Mandela wrote throughout his time in prison. On Tuesday, Feb. 12, she gave a talk based off the findings of her book, The Prison Letters of Nelson Mandela. Prior to the books release in July of 2018, little was known about Mandela’s private correspondances during his 27 year long prison sentence.
