Book Launch: Marion Keim's uMama: Recollections of South African Mothers and Grandmothers

uMama - Launch Invite

Umuzi and the German Consulate General in Cape Town cordially invite you to the launch of uMama: Recollections of South African Mothers and Grandmothers, a book compiled by Marion Keim, a book in which forty great South Africans celebrate the women who raised them.

Who was it that raised the likes of Sibongile Khumalo or Antjie Krog to extraordinary achievement? Or Nelson Mandela, Lukas Radebe, JM Coetzee, Helen Suzman, Pieter-Dirk Uys, Miriam Makeba, Elana Meyer, Trevor Manuel and many more? Much of the answer lies in the heart-warming tributes in uMama.

See you at the launch!
