Product Description

Joburg, Jozi, Joni, Joeys, Egoli—few Johannesburg residents actually call the city by its full name. Its many names are a testament to its multifaceted nature with its many neighborhoods, communities and histories. This massive metropolis also answers to many monikers. Let us take you into the City of Gold where you’ll read letters between Langston Hughes and one of South Africa’s preeminent writers Bloke Modisane as they built a friendship across the Atlantic. We’ll transport you to the end of apartheid with journalist and US civil rights activist Charlayne Hunter-Gault. You’ll also meet groundbreaking artists and musicians, punk rock skateboarders and two generations of student activists, each of whom has fought to change their country for the better.
