The C.O.W.S. Medical Apartheid in South Africa

Tuesday, April 25th 3:00PM Eastern/ 12:00PM Pacific

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Dr. Carla Tsampiras live from South Africa. The Primary Health Care Directorate at the University of Cape Town, Dr. Tsampiras  characterizes herself as a “feminist, historian interested in how constructions of gender, ‘race’, and sexuality have shaped research into health and access to healing.” A recent talk radio broadcast featured her as a panelist to discuss how racist health practices were used to maintain White Power in South Africa. We’ll get her thoughts on the plot described in Harriet A. Washington’s Medical Apartheid, where Whites plotted to poison Nelson Mandela to cripple the anti-apartheid effort. We’ll also discuss the implications of the CRISPR technology – which is reported to allow unprecedented levels of genetic manipulation.
