The Barrick Lecture Series will be featuring former South African President and promoter of peace and democracy, Frederik Willem de Klerk at the next event of this season. De Klerk will speak on “Bridging the Gap: Globalization without Isolation” on April 17 @ 7:30 pm. De Klerk was president of South Africa from 1982 until the inauguration of President Nelson Mandela in May 1994. As head of state, de Klerk initiated and presided over the negotiations leading to the end of South Africa’s infamous “apartheid” and the adoption of the country’s inclusive and truly democratic constitution in December 1993. Pres. de Klerk published his autobiography, “The Last Trek-A New Beginning” in 1999 and has established two foundations dedicated to peace. The first was the F.W. de Klerk Foundation for the promotion of peace in multi-communal societies and the more recent Global Leadship Foundation to promote peace, democracy and development.

The Barrick Lectures Series is held 2-3 times annually and is funded under a grant from Marjorie Barrick. Tickets are free but by reservation only. UNLV students, faculty and staff can obtain tickets from Wed, Mar 21, with availability to general public from Sat Mar 24. Contact the Performing Arts Center Box Office at 702-895-2787.
