Launch: To Survive and Succeed by Khusta Jack (20 November)

Until then, I had thought that where we lived and where my mother worked in the fields was our land. I had no idea that there was a white owner ­– a boss of our lives.

Mkhuseli ‘Khusta’ Jack was born on a white-owned farm in the Eastern Cape. Evicted from their home, his family was split up, wandering between different relatives, with nowhere to live legally. The young Khusta had a fierce yearning to go to school. Meeting obstacles at every turn, he never gave up. Reaching high school in Port Elizabeth, against all the odds, his drive finds a new focus: freedom for his people.

Through fiery years of activism, his resolve never wavered. Khusta Jack became a respected leader in the democratic movement. Today, as a successful businessman, he is as outspoken as always.

A true story of sacrifice, courage and triumph.
