"I don’t sing about politics; I sing the truth."
                                                                           - Miriam Makeba

I saw the wonderful documentary Mama Africa last night, on the life and work of the late Miriam Makeba. What an inspiring, radiant and beautiful human being. She was a towering presence in music, politics and history—and I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone so universally loved and honoured. 

And she was married to Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture).

Legendary.
