South African photographer Peter Magubane spent more than 30 years covering apartheid and its aftermath. For that, he was jailed—he spent 18 months in solitary confinement—banned by the government, and showered with press awards. “I am a feelingless beast while taking photographs,” says Magubane. “It is only after I complete my assignment that I think of the dangers that surrounded me, the tragedies that befell my people.” As a segment of the “Live…From National Geographic” lecture series, Magubane will take listeners on tour through a retrospective of his photos at 7:30 p.m. at the National Geographic Society’s Grosvenor Auditorium, 1600
