celebrate 60 years of the black sash

The Black Sash is known as an organization, run by women, to end the evil of apartheid. Many women have invested time and effort to make known to the political (and other) powers that the aprtheid should end.

One of the leading ladies was Sheena Duncan, a daughter of one the founding mothers of the Black Sash. She herself has been, in many ways, involved in the Black Sash, but not only here but also in the Anglican community in South Africa that she served.

A book on her life has been written by Annemarie Hendrikz (also wearing a black sash) and this book will be launched on May 26, 2015. Two daughters of Sheena will be present and they will be interviewed as well.
