The Youngsters, pocket books by young(ish) South Africans about their South Africa, have added two new voices to the series.
Joining Twitter celebrity-in-chief Khaya Dlanga, comedian Nik Rabinowitz and crooner Danny K are journalist Sipho Hlongwane and social activist Zama Ndlovu.
Hlongwane’s book, Don’t Get Me Started, sets out to “challenge youngsters to get themselves riled up, all in the name of a better South Africa”. His is a fresh and insightful look into everything, from Twitter and racism, to religion and politics.
Ndlovu’s book, A Bad Black’s Manifesto, is at times a humorous take on racial politics and the experience of being a black woman in South Africa today.
In case you were wondering what a “bad black’ is, Ndlovu does explain.
The Youngsters series lets young people tell their stories instead of having other people tell the them.
