A 30 min documentary showing the extent of racism at Stellenbosch University is going viral since it was published at the end of last week. Created by student group Open Stellenbosch, it documents the experiences and lives of 32 students of colour and a lecturer who attend Stellenbosch University. The documentary, titled Luister, is a series of interviews where students recount instances of racial prejudice that they continue to experience in the town of Stellenbosch, and the enormous challenges that they face due to the use of Afrikaans as a language of teaching at the university.
Here’s the full documentary.
