“Masego Panyane talks the legacy of the Black Consciousness Movement” — THE BLACK CONSCIOUSNESS READER co-author interviewed by Independent Online

Wednesday, June 17th, 2020

We caught up with Masego Panyane, the co-author of “The Black Consciousness Reader”, to talk about her journey as a young writer and how she became part of this remarkable book.

The Soweto-born writer, singer and content creator says the book is about the “legacy” of the Black Consciousness Movement.

The 26-year-old writer said, “The book came about as a conversation that the co-authors and I were having, about what the Black Consciousness Movement looks like, 40 years after the death of one of its more prominent leaders, Steve Biko.

“We thought it would be a good idea to find all the activists and champions of the Black Consciousness Movement to have that conversation with them. And to take the story forward by looking at how the philosophy of Black Consciousness keeps playing a role in South Africa today.”
