Black Twitter

Naledi Makgatho (@nay_909) and Lindo Gama (@nigerress) join Sila Odhuno (@Odhuno_Sila) on the Millennial Exchange to talk about the advent of Black Twitter. It is a digital phenomenon that sees communities of black people projecting culture, identity, and their views on the online platform Twitter. Is it positive? Is it negative? Is it informative? Is it a toxic environment? The Millennials who consider themselves part of Black Twitter will deliver their opinion.

The Mandela Legacy & Barack Obama - Attending the Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture

The Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture Series invites prominent people to drive debate on significant social issues. The lecture series is an important event on the Nelson Mandela Foundation's calendar, and encourages people to enter into dialogue – often about difficult subjects – in order to address the challenges we face today.

This year, Barack Obama took to the podium a day before what would have been Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday. He encouraged South Africans to follow Mandela's legacy. Sila finds some of the younger faces in the crowd at the lecture and gets their opinions on the Mandela legacy and what they think it means to lead by his example in 2018.

Youth Day 2018

Youth Day is an annual commemorative public holiday that reminds us of the the Soweto Uprising of 1976. But do modern day millennials celebrate the day? That is the question Sila is asking the current South African youth on this episode of the Millennial Exchange on this Youth Day.

Coloured Identity Part 3

Thomas White is a coloured man who looks black. In this episode of the Millennial Exchange, he talks about the pitfalls of being lodged in the middle of a South Africa that sometimes only thinks in black and white. Using a post-Apartheid lens, what follows is a discussion of how coloureds solidify their identity in a South Africa still grappling with tough questions about coloured identity and heritage.

Coloured Identity Part 2

"We are not black, we are coloured." The Millennial Exchange continues their dissection of the coloured community of South Africa. In this episode, Sila looks at how the apartheid-era Population Registration Act of 1950 - and it's subsequent amendments - birthed a segmented coloured community that still today grapples with issues of identity, appearance, religion, and more. Zeenat Patel, a social media expert, talks about how she found her identity in the coloured community.

Coloured Identity Part 1

While South Africa celebrates Freedom Day, the Millennial Exchange is investigating the unresolved national question of coloured identity. In Post-Apartheid South Africa, the country still utilizes four race identifiers: Black, White, Coloured and Indian. But what does being part of the Coloured community mean? Sila and Dimpho look into their immediate community of Coloured millennials to find out.
