Program: Independent Lens #1312

www.itvs.org Premiering January 12, 2012 on PBS (check local listings). Watch "Road to Resistance" - the first episode of "Have You Heard From Johannesburg" In 1948, South Africa implements a rigid, racist system of laws called apartheid to segregate its people in every aspect of life. The black majority in South Africa, led by the African National Congress (ANC), mounts a nonviolent campaign of defiance, attracting the attention of activists in Britain, Sweden, and the United States — sowing the seeds of an international movement. This five-part series from producer/director Connie Field chronicles the history of the global anti-apartheid movement that took on South Africa's entrenched apartheid regime and its international supporters who considered South Africa an ally in the Cold War.
