  • Twelve Years a Slave R160.00

    Perhaps the best written of all the slave narratives, Twelve years a slave is a harrowing memoir about on of the darkest periods in American history. It recounts how Solomon Northup, born a free man in New York, was lured to Washington, DC., in 1841 with the promise of fast money, then drugged and beaten and sold into slavery. He spent the next twelve years of his life in captivity on a Louisiana cotton plantation.
    After his rescue, Northup published the exceptionally vivid and detailed account of slave life. It became an immediate bestseller and today is recognized for its unusual insight and eloquence as one of the very few portraits of American slavery produced by someone as educated as Solomon Northup, or by someone with the dual perspective of having been both a free man and a slave. In 2013, Twelve years a slave was adapted for film by Director Steve McQueen and earned three academy awards, including the best picture.

  • We Are No Longer at Ease R200.00

    We are no longer at ease is a collection of personal articles, essays, speeches and poetry mainly from voices of young people who were part of the student led protest movement known as #FeesMustFall, which began in 2015. It tells the journey of the youth who participated in a movement that redefined politics in post apartheid South Africa and is evidence of a ‘born free’ generation telling their own story and leading the discourse and action in transforming South Africa.
    Young people are not at ease. They are refusing to coexist with coloniality, sexism, democratic indifference and inequality. We need to acknowledge and take heed to their calls. This collection includes works by former student leaders turned researchers such as David Maimela and Asanda Luwaca, student newspaper journalists who covered the protests, like Natasha Ndlebe and Nkateko Mabasa; public intellectuals whose aim was to inform broader society of the key aspects of the movement, like Sisonke Msimang lectures who assisted the students to articulate and find clarity in voicing their ideas such as Sabelo J Ndlovu Gatsheni and most importantly the foot soldiers on the ground who led the students through the police brutality of rubber bullets and pepper spray, like Mcebo Dlamini, Ntokozo Qwabe and Sarah Mokweba.
