Oliver Tambo Centenary Lecture

Auditorium, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria
16:00 to 18:30
You are cordially invited to the first of a series of Oliver Tambo Centenary lectures that will take place at the University of Pretoria.

Oliver Reginald Tambo was born on 27 October 1917 in Nkantolo, Eastern Cape. To celebrate his life and the crucial role he played in our country's history, the Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation, together with the Centre for Human Rights of the University of Pretoria's Faculty of Law, will host the Oliver Tambo Centenary Lecture Series over the course of 2017.

A lawyer by profession, Tambo was a strong proponent of an inclusive African Nationalism as a force for liberation. He was gentle and generous in style, and principled and thoughtful in manner. A democrat to his core, deeply influenced by his Christian beliefs, and a great listener who encouraged everyone to speak out, his leadership was characterised by total integrity.

The First Oliver Tambo Centenary Lecture will be delivered by Justice Albie Sachs, retired Judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
