NIHSS launches Alfred Temba Qabula – A working life, cruel beyond belief

The NIHSS in partnership with Jacana Press recently launched Alfred Temba Qabula’s ‘A working life, cruel beyond belief.’ Qabula was born in the Transkei in 1942. Discussants included Minister of Higher Education Dr. Blade Nzimande, NIHSS Board Chairperson Alfred Qabula’s daughter Noluthando Mdingi and Dr. Sithembiso Bhengu. Through his poetry, Qabula provided ideas underpinning left thought and analysis of dehumanizing capitalist conditions. The book is an exciting project which documents black narratives and the transition to democracy which have long been silenced.
