Frank Talk with Biko: We Blacks. A collection of publicly available writings, speeches and interviews by Steve Bantu Biko in the seminal time of the Black Consciousness Movement in the 1970s. These are collated into audio to give Biko a voice in these modern times that so desperately needs to listen to him.

South African politics is riddled with delusions. Many common political arguments come pre-packaged in an old and dusty box – but the self-evident truths are not, in fact, so indisputable. Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh sets out to dismantle that box. He argues that free education is far from impossible, the ANC’s liberation narrative is too idyllic to swallow, land reform is not the first step to chaos, and the media is not free… 

South Africa’s story is often presented as a triumph of new over old, but while formal apartheid was abolished decades ago, stark and distressing similarities persist. Dr Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh explores the edifice of systemic racial oppression — the new apartheid — that continues to thrive, despite or even because of our democratic system.

Located in the working class universe of Southern Africa this short story remains relevant even today and provides contextual themes of immigration, farm murders, generational wealth, xenophobia, love and racism.
In a world filled with hatred across the colour lines HIE Dhlomo wrote An Experiment in Colour to imagine what the world would be like if we could change races at a whim.
