8 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in South Africa during the 1950s, Drum magazine became a rallying point for black people as the anti-apartheid movement took shape. The publication, which featured liberal articles by such intellectuals as Lewis Nkosi, Can Themba, and Henry Nxumalo, gave voice to the movement, helping Nelson Mandela and his compatriots. Drum was more than a magazine - it was an expression of a new way of life. Among the highlights of this documentary is footage of the young Mandela and Oliver Tambo as they conduct political meetings and confrontations. The apartheid regime eventually closed the magazine down, but its legacy lives on to this day
Ndebele women & the rituals of rebellion( Visual )

The Ndebele women are known throughout the world for their vivid and multi faceted art forms, especially the colorful embellishment of their houses. Their arid land is pierced with blocks of color, each dwelling singular in a stylized way. Their resplendent clothing also boldly proclaims their identity. This unique film also explores Ndebele rituals never shown on film before. We see their fertility rites, a celebration that bonds them to their ancestral tradition. Ndebele performance art shows how traditional forms of expression can become a vehicle for political empowerment today. Nelson Mandela referred to the Ndebele as a 'Rainbow People.' Despite a history of racial oppression, forced removal from their ancestral land and economic privation, their pride and sense of joy has endured
