khawuleza mama

Sure, we know Hakuna Matata and can even sing it. Hakuna Matata is something African and lovely and inspiring.

Recently, we heard about the death of Miriam Makeba. She was an African woman who sang out the ugliness of apartheid. Why was it that we did not know her? As people basked in the Obama story and after reading "Dreams From My Father", anything African is an eye-opener for me. It is never too late to discover Miriam Makeba and see right through her soul.
