WE'RE A WINNER


BLK JKS in Amsterdam, August 2008. Photo by Jen Mazer.

The lasting thing that came out of the first meeting between BLK JKS and Robinson in Johannesburg was something Mpumi told me when we were talking about Barack Obama, this was in March 2007.

Just see how you walk down the street afterward.

A South African would know. And yes a South African will tell us that democracy is no easy thing but for now let's just take a few walks down a few streets together.

U-THEATRE INDABA


Taiwan's U-Theatre visited our folks in The People's Republic of Brooklyn last week.

When will the ancient social/spiritual/martial/metallurgical/psychopharmacological history of South Africa Azania be told?

What will it look/sound/feel/taste like?

Who will tell it?
