When hope and history rhyme

The ninth of eleven children born to political activists Ebrahim and Fatima Asvat, Amina Cachalia's political activism and championing of women's rights was almost a preordained path with her father's connection with Mahatma Gandhi, a family tradition that started with her father's explanation of racial discrimination. When hope and history rhyme explores Amina's remarkable life from her early childhood to the women's march on the Union Buildings in Pretoria on 9 August 1956, to her banning, in 1962, for 15 years, and the trials and tribulations when her husband, Yusuf, was placed under house arrest for 25 years. The title includes details of Amina's close relationship with Nelson Mandela, from their first meeting to their poignant encounters after his release from prison in 1990.

The 1990 Northern Areas "Uprising" in Port Elizabeth: A South African Story of Communities Resisting Oppression

The book demonstrates how South Africa possesses a veritable cornucopia of resources, from minerals to people. But it is on the latter aspect that Mr Abrahams focuses. He has an appreciation of both the challenges faced by our diverse population and the potential, waiting still to be unlocked for it to achieve true 'rainbow' status.

Abrahams, Cecil Collin
