发射:Breaking a Rainbow, Building a Nation通过Rekgotsofetse Chikane (30 October)

Breaking a Rainbow, Building a Nationis a first-hand account of the university protests that gripped South Africa between 2015 and 2017, widely better known as the #FeesMustFall.

Chikane outlines the nature of student politics in the country before, during and after the emergence of #MustFall politics, exploring the political dynamics that informed and drove the student protests, and the effect that these #MustFall movements have had on the nature of youth politics in the country.

Chikane looks at how the current nature of youth politics is different from previous youth upheavals that have defined South Africa, specifically due to the fact that the protests were being led by so-called coconuts, who are part of the black elite.

Breaking a Rainbow, Building a Nationposes the provocative question, can coconuts be trusted with the revolution?

Rekgotsofetse Chikane(known as Kgotsi for those who are tongue-tied) is a graduate of the University of Oxford, having completed his Masters in Public Policy degree in 2017, a Mandela-Rhodes Scholar (2015), one of theMail & Guardian’s Top 200 Young South Africans (2016) and the former national president of InkuluFreeheld, non-partisan, youth organisation focused on deepening democracy and enhancing social cohesion.

He is adept at navigating a variety of South Africa’s socially complex spaces, often as the resident coconut, and has experienced some of the best and worst of the #MustFall protests.

Chikane is an advocate for socio-economic equality and the practical realisation of decoloniality within a post-1994 South Africa.

“Liberation is of paramount importance in the concept of Black Consciousness” – remembering Steve Biko withNo Fears Expressed

First published in 1987,No Fears Expressedis a compilation of quotes taken from the words of the activist and Black Consciousness leader, Steve Biko.Sourced from the iconicI Write What I Like, including the collection of Biko’s columns published in the journal of the South Africa Student Organisation under the pseudonym of ‘Frank Talk’, as well as from The Testimony of Steve Biko (edited by Millard W.Arnold), this book contains many inspirational quotes and thoughts that are still relevant in South African society today.

Biko’s words fall under a wide range of topics including racism, blackwhite relations, remedies for apartheid, colonialism, black rage and township life.所有 are topics that reflect the ever-present divide that exists between black and white South Africans.

Steve Biko would have been 70 years old in 2017.His place in history is firmly cemented and the struggle that he gave his life for continues.He left a legacy of thoughts and words, and these words pay tribute to the courage and power of the young leader who was to become one of Africa’s heroes.

To commemorate Biko’s life, BooksLIVE – in collaboration with Pan Macmillan – will publish quotes to remember Biko by during the month of September;a month which also marks 40 years since he was beaten to death in police custody.

Steve Biko on Liberation:

Freedom is the ability to define oneself with one’s possibilities held back not by the power of other people over one but only by one’s relationship to God and to natural surroundings.
IWWIL (‘Black Consciousness and the Quest for a True Humanity’), p 101

Liberation therefore, is of paramount importance in the concept of Black Consciousness, for we cannot be conscious of ourselves and yet remain in bondage.We want to attain the envisioned self which is a free self.
IWWIL (‘The Definition of Black Consciousness’), p 53

Watch: Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu discussesThe Soweto Uprisingson SABC

When the Soweto uprisings of June 1976 took place, Sifiso Mxolisi Ndlovu, the author ofThe Soweto Uprisings: Counter Memories of June 1976was a 14-year-old pupil at Phefeni Junior Secondary School.

With his classmates, he was among the active participants in the protest action against the use of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction.

Contrary to the generally accepted views, both that the uprisings were ‘spontaneous’ and that there were bigger political players and student organisations behind the uprisings, Sifiso’s book shows that this was not the case.

Using newspaper articles, interviews with former fellow pupils and through his own personal account, Sifiso provides us with a ‘counter-memory’ of the momentous events of that time.

Here Professor Ndlovu discusses the book and his participation in the protest on SABC’S Morning Live Show with Leanne Manas:

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela served as the first democratically elected president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.Born on 18 July 1918, Mandela passed away on 5 December 2013.

The United Nations officially declared 18 July International Mandela Day in November 2009;ever since it has been celebrated annually as a day dedicated to honouring Mandela’s life and legacy.

Here are eight quotes, as published inNelson Mandela by Himself: The Authorised Book of Quotationsin the section titled ‘Freedom’, to remember this remarkable man by:

“It is the task of a new generation to lead and take responsibility;ours has done as well as it could in its time.”
——从一个消息到启动非洲国民大会选举 manifesto and ninety-seventh anniversary celebrations, Absa Stadium, East London, South Africa, 10 January 2009

“We are too old to pretend to be able to contribute to the resolution of those conflicts and tensions on the international front.It is, therefore, immensely gratifying to note a younger generation of African statespersons emerging.They will be able to speak with authority about a new world order in which people everywhere will live in equality, harmony and peace.”
- At the fifth annual Nelson Mandela Lecture, Linder Auditorium, Johannesburg, South Africa, 22 July 2007

“The long walk continues.”
- Final sitting of the first democratically elected parliament, Cape Town, South Africa, 26 March 1999

“The road we have walked has been built by the contribution of all of us;the tools we have used on that road had been fashioned by all of us;the future we face is that of all of us, both in its promises and its demands.”
- At the inauguration of a monument to passive restistance, Umbilo Park, Durban, South Africa, 27 May 2002

“Our vision for the future is one of renewed dedication by world leaders in all fields of human interaction to a twenty-first century of peace and reconciliation.”
- Accepting the German Media Prize, Baden-Baden, Germany, 28 January 1999

“All South Africans face the challenge of coming to terms with the past in ways which will enable us to face the future as a united nation at peace with itself.”
- At the inter-faith commissioning service for the TRC (Truth and Reconciliation Commission), St George’s Cathedral, Cape Town, South Africa, 13 February 1996

“Let us together turn into reality the glorious vision of a South Africa free of racism.Free of racial antagonisms among our people.No longer a threat to peace.No longer the skunk of the world.Our common victory is certain.”
- Address to the International Labour Conference, Geneva, Switzerland, 8 June 1990

“We can build a society grounded on friendship and our common humanity – a society founded on tolerance.That is the only road open to us.It is a road to a glorious future in this beautiful country of ours.Let us join hands and march into the future.”
- From an announcement of the election date, multi-party negotiations process, Kempton Park, South Africa, 17 November 1993

Peter Harris commented: ‘In a Different Timewas a book about the 1980s, and an extraordinary treason trial.It also chronicled the huge sacrifices that were made to bring about democracy in South Africa.My second book,Birth, was about the transition in the early 1990s and the extreme challenges that the country encountered in getting to and conducting the 1994 election, in the face of significant odds.This novel, located in the cauldron of Johannesburg, is about the society we have become.’

Sent to Robben Island at 15, now a top legal mind: Dikgang Moseneke’s extraordinary memoirMy Own Liberator

My Own LiberatorPan Macmillan is proud to presentMy Own Liberator: A Memoirby Dikgang Moseneke:

My Own Liberator, Dikgang Moseneke pays homage to the many people and places that have helped to define and shape him.In tracing his ancestry, the influence on both his maternal and paternal sides is evident in the values they imbued in their children – the importance of family, the value of hard work and education, an uncompromising moral code, compassion for those less fortunate and unflinching refusal to accept an unjust political regime or acknowledge its oppressive laws.

As a young activist in the Pan-Africanist Congress, at the tender age of 15, Moseneke was arrested, detained and, in 1963, sentenced to 10 years on Robben Island for participating in anti-apartheid activities.Physical incarceration, harsh conditions and inhumane treatment could not imprison the political prisoners’ minds, however, and for many the Island became a school not only in politics but an opportunity for dedicated study, formal and informal.It set the young Moseneke on a path towards a law degree that would provide the bedrock for a long and fruitful legal career and see him serve his country in the highest court.

My Own Liberatorcharts Moseneke’s rise as one of the country’s top legal minds, who not only helped to draft the interim constitution, but for 15 years acted as a guardian of that constitution for all South Africans, helping to make it a living document for the country and its people.

With a Foreword by Thabo Mbeki

Book details

Dikgang Mosenekewas born in Pretoria in December 1947.While imprisoned on Robben Island, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English and political science and a B Juris degree, and would later complete a Bachelor of Laws, from the University of South Africa.Moseneke started his professional career as an attorney’s clerk in 1976.He was admitted as an attorney in 1978 and practised for five years at Maluleke, Seriti and Moseneke.In 1983 he was called to the Pretoria Bar and he was awarded senior counsel status 10 years later.Moseneke worked underground for the PAC during the 1980s and became its deputy president when it was unbanned in 1990.Moseneke also served on the technical committee that drafted the interim constitution of 1993.In 1994 he was appointed deputy chairperson of the Independent Electoral Commission, which conducted the first democratic elections in South Africa.

Between 1995 and 2001, Moseneke left the Bar to pursue a full-time corporate career, but in November 2001, he came back to law when he was appointed to the High Court in Pretoria by then-President Thabo Mbeki.A year later Moseneke was made a judge in the Constitutional Court and, in June 2005, he became Deputy Chief Justice, a position from which he retired in May 2016.
