As First Lady Michelle Obama tours South Africa and Botswana this week, we'll look at the dynamic evolution from South Africa's violent and racially divided past to where they stand today in world affairs.  Having successfully hosted the World Cup in 2010 (see my radio programs in June-July last year) South Africa has proved that they are a world power that has overcome apartheid, racial oppression, and the 27 year jail term of former President Nelson Mandela. 

We'll interview Dr. Graeme Codrington, a native born White South African whom I met at a conference in Cape Town, South Africa in 2009. And then we'll play the inspiriational message that Michelle Obama delivered this week at the Regina Mundi Church in Soweto, South Africa as she address young women across Africa attending the Young African Women Leaders Forum hosted by the US Department of State.

Countries can reform. People can reform. It takes courage, sacriface, and a willing spirit to make the difference.

That is South Africa Today.
