Miriam Tlali wrote ‘the black South African writer writes because there is so much around him or her that hurts and needs to be expressed and exposed. They write to protest, to hit back, to keep pounding at the clamped door until it opens.’ In conversation with feminists, intellectuals, students and youth activists, Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education invites you to a reflection of Miriam Tlali’s writing through her seminal text Amandla, which explores current themes of student activism, protest literature and writing fiction in South Africa.
