Randy Smith and Team of Students

 

It’s been 20 years since the fall of apartheid in South Africa in 1994. For the last year now, students and faculty here at the University of Missouri have been assisting the University of Western Cape in preserving an archive of thousands of photographs, films, artifacts, oral histories and other historical documents related to the struggle for freedom during apartheid.

In poor areas of South Africa, trainers from a small organization called the Umuzi Photo Club give disposable cameras to high school students and teach them basic photography.
