South Africans are commemorating Human Rights Day, which is also World Down Syndrome Day. To mark both occasions, the SABC has launched a new actuality series in Cape Town. It explores how bias, conscious or not, affect persons with disabilities. SABC Education has commissioned the six part series called Life Begins After Coffee which kicks off on Saturday, April the sixth at six pm on SABC 2. It invites viewers into the lives of seven young adults. All are employed, have families and friends and face challenges and some form of discrimination on a regular basis. SABC 2 Programme Manager, Jacqui Hlongwane, says the public broadcaster hopes to change people’s perceptions through the series.”Each and every one of us, especially able bodies people to start thinking about our attitudes towards people with disabilities and really try to empathise to try to say, you know, what is that we are doing, or what is it that we can do better to be more inclusive, to be more accepting.”
