Elsa Gebrehiwet will explore differences and similarities between South Africa and Eritrea over the past 50 years. Apartheid might have been invented in South Africa, but it is by far the only country that suffered from it. The lesser known history of Eritrea will be brought to live, by linking it to key figures in the Black History movement, such as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King.

Elsa Gebrehiwet is an English-Tigrinya medical translator and UNESCO RILA Ambassador. In her role as ambassador she runs a community parent group, to talk about the needs of the young Eritreans in Glasgow. She also organises regular gatherings for those Eritreans, to support their development and to provide them with positive local role models.
