Joe Thloloe, NF ’89, Delivers First Nat Nakasa (NF ’65) Memorial Lecture http://niemanstoryboard.org/news/2014/09/joe-thloloe-nf-89-delivers-first-nat-nakasa-nf-65-memorial-lecture/ http://niemanstoryboard.org/news/2014/09/joe-thloloe-nf-89-delivers-first-nat-nakasa-nf-65-memorial-lecture/#comments Fri, 26 Sep 2014 21:30:03 +0000 http://nieman.harvard.edu/?post_type=foundation-post&p=116629 On the eve of South African journalist Nat Nakasa’s reburial, Joe Thloloe, a 1989 Nieman Fellow, gave the inaugural Nakasa commemorative lecture. “Nat’s life and struggle have been vindicated,” Thloloe said. Nakasa, a 1965 Nieman Fellow, died in New York on July 14, 1965. He had just finished his Nieman year, but accepting the fellowship had cost him his citizenship in apartheid-era South Africa, making him a man with no country. Unable to return home, he was buried in New York, where his remains rested until this month.
