An anti-apartheid leader who worked alongside late South African President Nelson Mandela will speak at the Annual William R. Laws Peacemaking Lecture at 4 p.m. May 3 at Columbus' North Christian Church, 850 Tipton Lane.
The Rev. Allan Boesak, 69, will follow his speech with a question-and-answer session and a public reception. The lecture series is part of the work of Columbus' First Presbyterian Church, where the now-late Rev. William R. Laws was a civil rights champion.
His speech title is, "The Bridge to Reconciliation, Social Justice and Global Peace From South Africa to Indiana."
The full story will appear in an upcoming edition of The Republic.
