Nokutela Dube was the first South African woman to found a school. She died after becoming estranged from her husband, who was then President of what would become the African National Congress.

Until as recently as 2012, Nokutela’s grave was unmarked, but one filmmaker is trying to change that. Prof Cherif Keita, director of the African studies programme at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, has been working on making her story known and the film Ukukhumbula uNokutela, Remembering Nokutela, will be released next month. Keita hopes that it will give her legacy more prominence.

Join Afrika! on April 5th (Wednesday) for the Screening of his film “Remembering Nokutela" and a session with the Speaker Cherif Keita himself. This event will be heald in JBD from 7-9pm.

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public
