A Deeper Wound Reader Review
5.0 out of 5 stars A deeper Wound:The South African struggle for liberation, December 5, 2003 By J. Oglesby (USA) - Amazon
This book by Mr.Thobejane is a must read to those who want to understand the history of the struggle for liberation in South Africa.I was always qurious as to whether this particular struggle was waged by one liberation organization in South Africa.Mr Thobejane was able to clarify questions I had, especially about the Black Consciousness movement which played a major role in the struggle , and yet failed to draw a large votership during the second democratic elections in South Africa. He should be commended for bringing about the contradictions inherent in different liberation movements during the struggle, and for his courage to share his own story about how he was invloved in this worthy struggle to usher in a democratic order, as opposed to a racist form of government which was ruthless and satanic, to say the least.I also like alternatives that he postulates especially in the realms of education and how a democratic South Africa should look like.
Though it is an emotionally taxing book, I recommend a lot of people to read it so that they can start to understand how a lot of people lost their lives for a democratic dispensation in this country.
