Sharon Katz, founder of The Peace Train in South Africa in 1992, mounted a countrywide tour around South Africa by train, shortly after the release of Nelson Mandela from South African prisons, and before his election as President of South Africa in 1994. She tours the world teaching Peace & Reconciliation and the anti-bullying messages contained in this historic and triumphant story.
