By Matshidiso Makhalanyane The Africa`s Many Liberations seminar series that was held in UFS (Bloemfontein campus) was regarded as a response to some of the #MustFall compaigns the past year. The aim of the seminar is to deepen the understanding of histories and anti-colonial struggles. It was made in order to be known by students across different faculties. The reason for this is so that language or literature that might make students feel excluded is avoided. This seminar is convened by the International Studies Group (ISG), in partnership with the Institute for Reconcilliation and Social Justice (IRSJ).  The Coordinator is Prof Neil Roos presented the first seminar entitled Du Bois and the “Problem of the Colour Line on Thursday 28 April 2016. The next theme will be Fanon and the Relevance of Personal and Collective Decolonisation in Today`s South Africa which will be presented by Dr Tinashe Nyamunda. The remainder of the eight-part series will be presented by Dr Rachel Hatcher (postdoc in the IRSJ), Dr Sahar Sattarzadeh (postdoc in the IRSJ). Date: 12 May 2016 Time: 16:30 Venue: Albert Wessels Auditorium, Bloemfontein Campus Entrance: Free RSVP: sattarzadehsd@ufs.ac.za Seminar series programme
