Dwyer, Peter (2003) Land: Critical Choices for South Africa:
A review of the Harold Wolpe Memorial Lecture given by Professor Gillian Hart, University of Natal, and Andile Mngxitama, Landless Peoples Movement (LPM) in June 2003. Centre for Civil Society : 1-4.

The Harold Wolpe lecture series is different not least because it is unusual for activists to be given a public and unrestricted platform in a university to discuss the challenges facing South Africans. As Andile Mngxitama noted, the Centre for Civil Society has been at the forefront of creating an exciting public space where activists, progressive academics and members of the public can genuinely debate. This acknowledgement that there is an interdependent relationship between theory and practice and that everyone is an ‘intellectual’ (although not everyone is employed as one) was captured well through the theoretical and strategic questions posed and raised through the dialogue with an audience that is now consistently a mix of academics, students and working class people from local townships.
