[Watch] Interview with Charles Abrahams, lawyer and author of "Class Action: In pursuit of a larger life" - Black Sash Khuluma, 28 February 2019

The Black Sash held its first 2019 Khuluma on 28 February in Mowbray, Cape Town.  Black Sash Trustee, Nolundi Luwaya, interviewed guest speaker Charles Abrahams, lawyer and author of his debut book "Class Action: In pursuit of a larger life".  The life of Charles Abrahams led him to study law, first in SA and then abroad - from the cape flats to law school in Amsterdam, to the courts in the United States. His work with the Black Sash, COSATU and the Children’s Resources Centre on the bread price fixing case, resulted in the right to Class Action. He and his associates used class action successfully to ensure that corporates in the mining sector and elsewhere take responsibility for their actions.
