Today's guest: Bugile Matiwane talking about Moses Mabhida

Today, we had Bugile Matiwane, the Provincial Chairperson of the South African Students' Congress [SASCO] in to talk about some of our history's heroes.  Today, Mr. Matiwane talked about Moses Mabhida, one of the many unsung heroes who fought for our freedom today. Mabhida was an outstanding leader of humble origins who became a dominant figure in the trade union movement, the African National Congress (ANC), South African Congress of Trade Uninons (SACTU), uMkhonto we Sizwe (MK) Commissar and the Communist Party. He was important because he was a leader and symbol for many. He embraced a progressive position on race, and found balance in alliance. He beleived race was a conduit to divide the classes and wanted to be part of a non-racial organization. To him, struggle comes from a place of love, love for the people, love for the land, etc. And that was what made Mabhida such a hero, yet such an unsung one at that.

Unlimited--The Movement

Today we had the organizers from Unlimited--The Movement in the studio to talk about their movement. The goal of their movement is to empower everyday people through the transformative power of photography. As part of their art project, they will take your picture for you after having a conversation with you about what you want from the portrait.

Although the organization does not have an official headquarters, members of the project connect over social media and meet in new places each time. Although in the past, Unlimited: The Movement has concentrated on empowering women, their new initiative strives to empower and educate men, who constantly suffer from gang violence, hyper masculinity, and substance abuse stemming from unhealthy masculine expectations. "Men bleed, men cry, men are human too," said our guests, describing this new initiative. They also report positive feedback for the program, seeing that people need the change and the unique chance to share their storytelling through photos. To join the conversation or to learn more about their upcoming launch, you can contact them at:
