Episode 2: Race and Rugby | Lebanon Uprising

South African rugby is redressing its racist past with support from unexpected quarters, and we question if the uprising in Lebanon five months ago can still effect change.

Rugby in South Africa is about way more than what’s on the scoreboard, it’s also about redressing the sport’s racist past. Support for this transformation has come from an unexpected place.

Five months ago, Lebanon’s streets were filled with millions of protesters, but the revolution seems to have fizzled out. Was it simply a rave with political slogans, or can real change still be achieved?
