About the Event
As the 2019 Tony Tripodi guest lecturer, Vishanthie Sewpaul (bio), Senior Professor at the University of KwaZulu in South Africa, will share her vision for how social work can be “politics with soul.” Weaving together lessons from her scholarship, the ethical leadership of Nelson Mandela, and the Afrocentric ideal of ubuntu, Sewpaul will discuss the importance of “being for the other,” and the need for embracing a politics of hope, which in turn can lead to collective emancipatory action.
