Keïta Speaks With BBC About New Film Project

June 17, 2014

Professor of French and director of African/African American studies Chérif Keïta was interviewed by BBC News about his new film, "Remembering Nokutela." The film brings to light the role of Nokutela Dube, the wife of John Dube, the founding president of the group that became today's governing African National Congress. "John's name was always floating around, but in her case she was wiped out and yet she had been there at every stage of the building of these institutions that were ground-breaking in South Africa's history," Keïta told the BBC.
