We’ve come a long way as a country and as our young democracy fast approaches its thirties it has become imperative for us to reflect on how far we’ve come and much has been done to make sure everyone in our beautiful land enjoys basic humans rights. 


The brutality of our past is woven in the tapestry that is our freedom and to appreciate where we are today we need to pay tribute to those who gave their lives for rights we enjoy today. Just 62 years ago 69 people lost their lives fighting for their basic human rights and in their memory, we celebrate the libraries that they gave their lives up for. 


We commemorate Human Rights Day this month in remembrance of the 69 people who lost their lives in the fight for our freedom, we look at musicians who have come and gone who took the baton from the heroes from Sharpeville and used their musical craft to sunshine a light on the injustices that take place in our society.  


As the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said: “We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew… Human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful… and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.”. 


Happy Human Rights Day!!!
