Thank you Dr Ditsie

Dr Beverly Palesa Ditsie, “Because you reside in a long lineage of leaders who believe that civil rights must begin as human rights. Because you have stared down threats to your own well-being in your commitment to social justice. Because you have blended artistry with activism in order to raise awareness and create social change… ”

We at impepho press would like to say THANK YOU! You deserve all your flowers! We are, because you have fought to make sure we can All be!

Dr Beverley Palesa Ditsie is a lesbian activist and filmmaker. She is co-founder of the gay rights organization, Gay and Lesbian Organisation of the Witwatersrand (GLOW) and is also the first person to address the United Nations regarding LGBT issues.

“I just did what I knew needed to be done. From the very first Pride march and absolutely everything else since then, I just do what feels needs to be done.” – Dr Beverly Palesa Ditsie

vangile gantsho’s riot

red cotton is a poetic canvas made out of a collection of experiences that define the lives of black women trying to survive what activist Wanelisa Xaba calls “post apartheid – apartheid” or the angst of being free only in words. Very little has changed in South Africa and it is black women who often bear the brunt.

A girl, a large plate,
Seven children each with spoons
Only she is left hungry.
