Music therapist Sharon Katz joined with singer and educator Nonhlanhla Wanda to form a 500-voice multiracial choir that would break through Apartheid’s barriers. Threatened with bombs and thwarted at every turn, they prevailed and railroaded across the country aboard The Peace Train. They performed together for seven years; never lost touch with one another; and then reunited 20 years later to tell their stories and reflect upon The Peace Train’s impact on their views of the country today.
