O'Mandingo!: Before Mandela was Mandela

by Eric Miyeni (2008)

O’Mandingo! Before Mandela was Mandela was written in the years prior to Mandela’s release from jail, and Miyeni has chosen these pieces to follow up on the staggering success of his previous book, O’Mandingo! The Only Black at the Dinner Table

Read this and remember when, as Miyeni says in his introduction, “…under apartheid, one had to hide one’s meaning and hope it will be discovered.”  Miyeni writes in fact and fiction of those years when our realities were skewed by apartheid, yet we knew for certain, and it was that Mandela was Mandela.
