Remembering And Reckoning With Winnie Mandela And David Montgomery On 'Growing A Revolution'
On today’s show:
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the South African anti-apartheid activist and former wife of the late President Nelson Mandela, passed away Monday at the age of 81. Joining us to untangle her complex, meaningful legacy is Audrey Brown, a South African journalist with the BBC.
David Montgomery — a University of Washington professor, ecologist, and geomorphologist — says we must take drastic measures to preserve the world’s topsoil, necessary for a sustainable food supply. He explains why he believes we must “rethink the Green Revolution” to not only “feed the world” but also “nourish the world."
