The Zulus Of New York

Zakes Mda (Writer, Poet and Painter) reads from his new novel The Zulus of New York (2019) with Tinashe Mushakavanhu (Writer-Scholar and 1-54 Forum Programme Curator) as respondent. The novel, based on historical events in the 1880s, follows Mpiyezintombi, a Zulu, as he is taken to England and later America as a performer.
