Micro and macro-aggressions - lessons from Aparthied South Africa
Oct 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 9
Mastercard Foundation Scholars at the university of Edinburgh

Welcome to a special episode of Ekasi Podcast. This is a bonus episode in recognition of Black History Month .

The conversation features Ayanda  Ngobeni, Brindley Fortuin and Dr Pumla Madikizela who explore issues of micro-aggressions against people of colour in modern day society and how that relates to the past. They delve into a deep analysis of the aggressions that happened during the gruesome times of apartheid South Africa along with the scars left on both the victims and the perpetrators of the atrocities of that time. 

The episode is a very educative listen. Dr Pumla, drawing from her rich experience over the years, highlights important lessons to be learnt by the current generation pertaining issues of micro and macro aggressions. 

The conversation attempts several difficult questions including:

 What struggles do minority students face in big internationalised institutions of learning?

What sort of conversations, and how, should we have around various issues of taste-based discrimination?
