Peter Harris Talk
In October Facing the Past History teachers and learners had the opportunity to engage in conversation with Peter Harris, the author of In a Different Time: The Inside Story of the Delmas Four. Peter Harris won the 2009 Sunday Times Alan Paton Award for non-fiction.
Peter Harris was the lawyer for the Delmas Four, a group of ANC foot-soldiers trained as an assassination unit, who were captured after re-infiltrating the country of their birth in the 1980s. In a Different Time recounts these times in a gripping and revealing way and highlights the role that individuals play in shaping the future of a country and the choices they are confronted with in resisting oppression.
