Singing away the hunger : the autobiography of an African woman by Mpho 'M'atsepo Nthunya( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A compelling and unique autobiography by an African woman with little formal education, less privilege, and almost no experience of books or writing. Mpho's voice is a voice almost never heard in literature or history, a voice from within the struggle of "ordinary" African women to negotiate a world which incorporates ancient pastoral ways and the congestion, brutality, and racist violence of city life. It is also the voice of a born storyteller who has a subject worthy of her gifts - a story for all the world to hear."--Jacket

Tsiamelo, a place of goodness( Visual )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

While visiting London in 1983, Ellen Kuzwayo recalls that, in 1913, author Sol T. Plaatje was in England as part of a South African Native National Congress delegation to appeal to the British government to use its influence to prevent the introduction of the Native Land Act, a law that was to become a cornerstone of apartheid. A later visit of Plaatje's is recalled by Lord Brockway. Kuzwayo talks about her family's friendship with the author and then returns to rural Thaba Nchu in the Orange Free State, where she grew up. She talks to her aunt, Blanche Tsimatsima, and other elderly residents, and describes how their families were dispossessed of farms that had been theirs for generations. The film attends a family reunion and, back in Soweto, Kuzwayo briefly refers to her 1977/78 detention
