Omtale: Gathering Seaweed
The anthology is edited and introduced by Jack Mapanje, the Malawian poet who was himself imprisoned for over three years without trial. He has selected contributions of literary and historical significance from many distinguished writers and political activists including Kwame Nkrumah, Obafemi Awolowo, Kenneth Kaunda, Steve Biko, Ken Saro-Wiwa, and Wole Soyinka. Their words provide a harrowing record of physical and mental suffering along with heartening insights into human courage, resilience and a 'stubborn will to be free'.
