Come back, Africa by Lionel Rogosin( Visual )
13 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1957, Rogosin travelled to South Africa and created a powerfully, moving drama exposing the harsh reality of life under the system apartheid. Filmed secretly under the noses of the feared South African police, Rogosin, his crew, and cast risked arrest and deportation. Miriam Makeba was banned from her country after travelling to Venice for the movie's premiere. The scenes shot in the vibrant black ghetto of Sophiatown are precious images of a lost world. Rogosin took the fight for equality to his homeland with Black roots, his documentary on African American life. The extraordinary cast, including Reverend Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick, attorney and feminist activist Florynce "Flo" Kennedy, musicians Jim Collier, Wende [i.e. Wendy] Smith, Larry Johnson and Reverend Gary Davis, tell stories of heartbreak and despair while their songs blow the roof off the rafters. The film combines tales of oppression with hauntingly beautiful images of the faces of black men, women and children
Underground people by Lewis Nkosi( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cornelius Molapo - urban dandy, poet, dancer, fiery but fickle political orator - is not the first person you'd choose to lead the revolution. And no one is more surprised than Corny when he's approached by the National Liberation Movement and ordered to lead a peasant uprising in remote Tabanyane - right now, Little does Cornelius suspect that he is a pawn in a much bigger political game: the NLM has its own reasons for deploying this reluctant revolutionary." "His sudden disappearance mystifies friends, loved ones, and ultimately the international community - it's assumed that he's been abducted by the police, or worse. Expatriate Anthony Ferguson is dispatched to South Africa by a human rights organisation to investigate. But the emotions stirred up by his return, and the reunion with his decadent, bewitching sister Hazel, distract Anthony from his quest for the seemingly harmless Cornelius. And by the time the two cross paths, Cornelius Molapo is harmless no more ..." "Nkosi takes us to mansions and mountain hideouts, where we meet a dazzling variety of characters; serene Princess Madi of the Tabanyane royal house, Kristina the small-town temptress and Joe Bulane, the sinister Central Committee man."--Jacket

Männlichkeitsmythos: Südafrika in den Sechzigerjahren des letzten Jahrhunderts, der Held des Romans Dumisan wächst in einem Zuludorf auf. Seine glühende Verehrung gilt Nelson Mandela, der den weissen Beherrschern den Kampf angesagt hat. Seine Bildung ist geprägt von der Missionsschule und vor allem durch den Einfluss des Schulleiters Pater Ross, der seinen Zöglingen mit glühendem Eifer von den Minnegesängen der europäischen Ritter im Mittelalter erzählt. Dumisan erfährt aber gemäss dem Willen des Vaters nach altem Zuluritual seine Initiation ins Erwachsenenleben und entwickelt sich zum berühmt berüchtigten Frauenheld. Ausgerechnet an dem Tag, als er hofft seine grosse Liebe erobern zu können, erfährt er von der Verhaftung seines veehrten Nelson Mandelas und nichts mehr geht. Er bleibt dreissig Jahre lang impotent, bis zum Tag der Entlassung von Nelson Mandela. Der Entwicklungsroman beschreibt in wunderschönen Bildern und mit Humor die Zerrissenheit der Schwarzen in Südafrika, zwischen europäischem Einfluss und alter Tradition. Ab 16 Jahren, ****, Elisabeth Tschudi-Moser

Still beating the drum critical perspectives on Lewis Nkosi by Lindy Stiebel( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lewis Nkosi is one of South Africa's foremost writers and critics, and one of the few survivors of the exile generation dating from the Drum era. Up until now, however, no full length study has been done on his work. This is a gap in South African literary history and criticism that this book is intended to fill. Besides his well known earlier works, Nkosi is still very much an active writer as the publication in 2002 of his novel, Underground People, shows, with his latest novel due out in 2005. The timing of Still Beating the Drum, a book which intends to highlight and evaluate his extensi
