A Conversation on Community Activism with Lindy Guma

A Conversation on Community Activism with Lindy Guma

Lindy (Lindelwa) Guma was born in a small town in South Africa. Today she lives in Winnipeg. As a Black child growing up she played with White, Coloured, East Indian children. But when school started, she was forced to go to an all Black school. Growing up under Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd, often called the architect of apartheid, Lindy shares her story of becoming aware that apartheid was keeping the Black community as the bottom of society behind the Whites, Coloured, and East Indian communities. She talks about how she met husband, Eric Mduduzi Guma, and how he became active in the ANC, fought against aparthied  and was ultimately fatally shot as one of the well known Mstola 11. Fleeing to Canada, with her two children as refugees,  Lindy shared how through her deceased patriotic husband Eric, she danced in the streets when Nelson Mandela was ultimately freed from prison after 27 years.
