In this highly acclaimed autobiography, Mamphela Ramphele, the partner of Steve Biko until his death in 1977, vividly describes her extraordinary life. When she was born to teacher parents in the rural village of Kranspoort, few would have predicted that she would become not only a medical doctor, but an international leader and the founder of two new political movements: Black Consciousness in the 1970s and Agang SA in 2013. As a young woman, Mamphela was instrumental in creating the ideology of Black Consciousness with Steve Biko. As an accomplished and respected businesswoman who had reached the pinnacle of success, she felt compelled to start Agang SA, to provide South African voters with an alternative to the increasingly corrupt ANC. Richly anecdotal, this book describes her loves and losses and her remarkable successes in both politics and business.
