A Wits School of Governance conversation with Masana Ndinga-Kanga

When: Thursday, 02 May 2019 - Thursday, 02 May 2019
Where: Parktown Management Campus
Auditorium 1, Albert Wessels Building
Start time:12:30

The Wits School of Governance will host this conversation.

Triple Jeopardy, a multimedia project, presents a snapshot into the lived experiences of the black middle class in South Africa, unravelling the current framing of the group as an identity driven by consumerism and disconnect from the country’s political landscape. Through film and research, the project is a practical exploration of the privileges and burdens of this class identity, including an exploration of ‘black tax’. The project unpacks the gender, race and class dynamics within the group, and the ways in which young people (women, in particular) navigate these in a context where intra-group inequality is one of the highest in the world. The conversation will begin with a screening of the Triple Jeopardy documentary followed by a presentation of a research report of 100 respondents, and a panel discussion. Masana Ndinga-Kanga, a Senior Atlantic Fellow conducted the research which was supported by the Atlantic Fellowship on Social and Economic Equity at the London School of Economics.
