Mewa Ramgobin at Phoenix Settlement

We recently interviewed author, activist and politician Mewa Ramgobin at the Phoenix Settlement as part of the oral history component of the Ulwazi Programme.  He provided insight into the ‘forgotten’ history of the 1960s and 1970s at the Settlement, where people like Steve Biko, Alan Paton and Rick Turner congregated at work parties to discuss the politics of the day and strategies of resistance.

This interview will shortly be available on Vimeo.
