Following the release, the two politi- cians worked together to bring an end to the policy of racial segregation, and the formerly banned African National Congress was legalized. It was for this participation in the peace process that both de Klerk and Mandela were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. De Klerk addressed and took questions from Torrance Memorial Patrons at a private reception at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach in April. The reception preceded his appearance at the Distin- guished Speaker Series of Southern California later that evening. Torrance Memorial Medical Center is a sponsor of the series, which takes place at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. IN YOUR COMMUNITY
