Mama Africa: Miriam Makeba
Series: Sonic Cinema
Miriam Makeba was one of the first African musicians to win
international stardom, and whose music was always anchored in her
traditional South African roots. She spent half a century traveling the
world spreading her political message to fight racism and poverty; and
promote justice and peace. Through rare archive footage of her
performances and through testimonies of her contemporaries and
supporters including Harry Belafonte, Stokely Carmichael, Hugh Masekela,
Paul Simon, Angélique Kidjo and many others - we discover Miriam
Makeba’s remarkable journey.
