Overview

An insider’s account, brimming with colorful anecdotes, humor and passion, of South Africa’s turbulent past. Kumalo shares intimate moments of pain and of triumph, in pictures and words.

He was a guest at Mohammad Ali’s home in Chicago and at the Rumble in the Jungle fight in Kinshasa. Kumalo joined Mandela on his first visit to America as SA president.

Kumalo’s life’s work is a visual documentary of a nation’s transformation, but he is also a storyteller of note. His first-person account of historic events and private moments is filled with humor and compassion.

· Desmond Tutu
· Helen Joseph
· Albertina Sisulu
