Mpho MacChambers, fonder of Kula Education Group offers this piece in recognition of Human Rights Day. On March 21st, millions of South Africans come together to commemorate the nation’s annual Human Rights Day: an occasion historically connected to the peaceful protest against Pass Laws which took place on March 21st 1960, in Sharpeville, and also during which police brutally killed 69 and injured 180 participating civilians.
