    Examines the role of black resistance to apartheid in South Africa through a look at two of the nation's leading cultural activists and popular performers--poet Mzwakhe Mbuli and writer/ performer Gcina Mhlophe. Through their poetry, music and storytelling, they show us the important role culture plays in a changing South Africa. In addition to interviews with, and dynamic performances by, both Mbuli and Mhlophe, the film includes rousing scenes of hostel dancing, church singing, township jazz and freedom songs.
