Justice Edwin Cameron, Constitutional Court of South Africa, General Secretary to the Rhodes Trust for South Africa will present "South Africa's Constitutional Transition and AIDS: A Personal Account."
As the first senior South African official to publicly state his diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, Cameron was selected as a recipient of the Nelson Mandela Award for Health and Human Rights for his extraordinary courage in raising public awareness of the disease. His brilliant career -- which spans safeguarding human rights during apartheid, teaching law, and serving as a judge -- uniquely qualifies Cameron to examine our response to AIDS. Vanderbilt is honored to welcome this extraordinary man, whom President Mandela has hailed as "one of South Africa's new heroes."
