Book launch mothers of the nation

Lihle Ngcobozi, herself the progeny of three generations of Manyano women, takes an original, fresh look at the meaning of the Manyano. Between male-dominated struggle narratives and Western feminist misreadings, this church-based women's organisation has become a mere footnote to history. Here, the Manyano women speak for themselves, in an African feminist meditation rendered by one of their own.
