“Khotso House” stands as an iconic symbol and reminder of the struggle against the oppression and injustice of the past and the hope of liberation and a better life for all in the future.
The documentary features events that took place on Thursday 27th November 2014, when South African church leaders representing the core of the ecumenical movement came together at Marshall Street’s Khotso House in Johannesburg under the banner, “SACC Vital Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow”. The occasion officially marks the re-launch of the South African Council of Churches [SACC].
