This week, host Mungi Ngomane is joined by Dennis Marcus, the Executive Director of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights UK, an educational charity that works to inspire people to make human rights a reality in their everyday lives. Dennis co-founded the social impact agency Ubuntu London, working with leading politicians, global NGOs, and high profile activists, including honouring Nelson Mandela's co-accused Denis Goldberg, Ahmed Kathrada, and Andrew Mlangeni. Dennis also managed Patricia Scotland QC's successful 2015 bid to become the first female Secretary-General of the Commonwealth. He is a member of the Strategic Council of the Patchwork Foundation and the Committee for the Cherry Groce Memorial.
In this episode, Mungi and Dennis discuss his connection to Ubuntu from his youth, and his current project, The World Reimagined, focused on the Transatlantic Slave Trade— how we understand it and how it impacts us all. He also shares a comparison between two of his identities, South African and German, and how both have approached their history.
