Synopsis:

In eight essays, Pumla Dineo Gqola shows why Simphiwe Dana is arguably the most significant cultural figure working in contemporary South Africa today. Dana’s musical repertoire, self-styling choices, public debates, and growing written output display her causes. Controversy, tabloid headlines, and fluctuating public responses to Dana all reveal South African sensitivities on Blackness, femininity, language, and the imagination. Part intellectual biography and part commentary on South African contemporary culture, Gqola has captured a must-read portrait of Dana, her music and writing, her cultural activism, the vision in her work, and changing politics against the background of a changing postapartheid popular culture.

About the Author:

Pumla Dineo Gqola is an associate professor of African literary and gender studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. She is the author of What Is Slavery to Me? and the editor of Regarding Winnie: Feminism, Race and Nation in Global Representations of Winnie Madikizela Mandela. She has written nonfiction and opinion pieces for City Press, Pambazuka, Mail & Guardian, and the Weekender as well as the British publications BBC Focus on Africa, Drum, and SABLE.
