A Common Purpose
A Common Purpose 
In the late 1980s, during the most violent period of the apartheid regime, twenty-five men and women were rounded up in Paballelo, a black township bordering the town of Upington in South Africa, to stand trial for the murder of a black policeman. Upington - a small town near the border of South Africa and Namibia, known as a stronghold of Afrikaner nationalism - was besieged by a three-year legal trial, which culminated in fourteen of the twenty-five accused being sentenced to death, in the assassination of Namibian barrister and human rights advocate Anton Lubowski, and in the exile of the young, white lawyer Andrea Durbach, who represented the twenty-five. A Common Purpose tells the story of how the trial irrevocably changed of the lives of the accused and their legal team as South Africa began its transition to a post-apartheid state.
