Helen Suzman: Fighter for Human Rights

On exhibit in the Katz Snyder Gallery
May – August

Helen Suzman was one of South Africa’s most vociferous and energetic opponents of apartheid. She takes pride of place among those liberals who devoted their lives to the fight for human rights and the rule of law in South Africa. Twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, her valiant stand against the injustices of the apartheid regime was acknowledged by numerous institutions. From the start of a political career that spanned four decades, she worked tirelessly, never flinching from challenging the pernicious system created by apartheid.
