"'We were exiles from our country, South Africa, which had rejected us and our talents, including a kaleidoscope of paintings, poetry, stories, novels and music that we would have contributed' (Daniel P. Kunene). Gandhi said his life was his message. Daniel Kunene's life is his message: civil rights activist and committed fighter against apartheid, paragon of love, dignity, knowledge, peace, passion, and the pursuit of justice; wellspring of song, poetry, fiction, and music, epic linguist, acclaimed scholar, and translator of African oral and written literatures." -Dr. Fritz Pointer (from the Foreword)
