The East Side Freedom Library welcomes the film director Cherif Keita of the film “Remembering Nokutela”. Come join this free event that includes the free showing of the film and a discussion with Keita.
“Remembering Nokutela” is a documentary film about Nokutela Dube, wife of the founding president of South Africa’s ANC, and an educator, contributor to the Zulu newspaper Ilanga Lase Natal, musician, and com-poser of great talent. Her grave was unmarked and her legacy forgotten for many years, until Prof. Keita’s film led the South African government to offer her full recognition and honors for her pioneering role in local and international black struggles.
Cherif Keita is a professor in the French and Francophone Studies department at Carleton College where he teaches Francophone literature of Africa and the Caribbean, as well as advanced language courses.
