October 16, 2012
South African Human Rights Activist

Mr. Daniels, who fought against apartheid, was imprisoned for 15 years on Robben Island, where he became close friends with Nelson Mandela. He is the author of "There & Back: Robben Island, 1964-1979." Mandela said, "We recall his loyalty and courage; his sense of humor, and justice as well as total commitment to the struggle of the prisoners for the eradication of injustice and betterment of their conditions."

This talk was sponsored by the UMass Lowell Peace and Conflict Studies Institute in partnership with the UMass President's Office and Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs and International Relations, Marcie Williams.
