Keïta's "Remembering Nokutela" Project Covered by "The World"

May 12, 2014

Chérif Keïta, professor of French and director of African/African American studies at Carleton, was interviewed by Marco Werman for Public Radio International's "The World" regarding Keïta's new documentary film, "Remembering Nokutela." The film examines the life of Nokutela Mdima Dube, the wife of John Dube, the first president of the African National Congress of South Africa. Her place in the ANC's history was largely ignored prior to Keïta's efforts, as were her contributions to education and a distinctive singing style later made famous by Miriam Makeba.
