To every birth its blood : a novel by Mongane Wally Serote( Book )

"To every birth its blood, Serote's first novel, was originally published in 1981. It was written over a period of six years and combines the piercing subjectivity of Serote's earlier works with a broad canvas of characters and time sequences. Whether his characters are young or old, men or women, Serote's extraordinary empathy takes us into the interior of their lives"--Publisher's description

"Keke, a veteran MK cadre who was once the CEO of a cellphone company, wakes up one day to find his life in ruins. He has lost his job and his wife, and he has become more and more reliant on the solace of alcohol. After hitting rock bottom, Keke is thrust into a spiritual journey. He meets Ami, a shaman from Mali, and travels there, where he is 'cooked' and cleansed in a 'meeting' with his ancestors. Only when he is healed, and understands his role in the context of a post-apartheid South Africa, can Keke make a careful comeback to his country to rejoin his wife and comrades. The global village, the African continent and South Africa are the platforms where Keke's life unfolds in the 21st century."--Back cover

The people shall govern! : MEDU Art Ensemble and the anti-apartheid poster 1979-1985 by Antawan I Byrd( Book )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formed in the late 1970s, Medu Art Ensemble forcefully articulated a call to end the apartheid system's racial segregation and violent injustice through posters that combined revolutionary imagery with bold slogans. Advocating for decolonization and majority (nonwhite) rule in South Africa and neighboring countries, Medu members were persecuted by the South African Defence Force and operated in exile across the border in Botswana. This book features nearly all the surviving posters that Medu created between 1979 and 1985. These objects are exceedingly rare, as they were originally smuggled into South Africa and mounted in public places, where they were regularly confiscated or torn down on sight. Offering new insight into the conceptual framework of Medu's working practice, this volume examines the continuing relevance and impact of its poster production
