My name is Thabiso “mental apartheid”, and my talk is based on my experiences as a young boy growing up in township post-apartheid and attending a school in a Camps Bay suburb, having a comparison of the two worlds.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxCapeTown, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxCapeTown event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
