A CELEBRATION AND COMMEMORATION OF TEN YEARS OF FREEDOM IN SOUTH AFRICA
This anthology of poetry and prose grew out of a desire to leave behind a lasting Glasgow legacy of the 10 years of freedom in South Africa and the many years of struggle against apartheid. Glasgow has led the way in the support of Nelson Mandela, being the first Council to award the Freedom of the City to Mandela in 1981 while he was still imprisoned. Mandela himself praised Glasgow for its work against apartheid during his visit to the city in 1993.
This collection contains work from a broad range of Scottish and South African writers, with a preface by the distinguished South African writer Andre Brink. Featuring voices as varied as Desmund Tutu, Tom Leonard, Janice Galloway, Beverly Naidoo and Des Dillon, this book will entertain, inspire and challenge.
Edited by Catherine McInerney, former Glasgow City Council Literature Development Officer and Suhayl Saadi, award winning Glasgow-based novelist.
The publication of the book was funded by Glasgow City Council with assistance from the Scottish Arts Council and is available from Glasgow Arts, Free of charge. If you would like a copy please drop us an email.
