RIP Dennis Vincent Brutus, 1924-2009

One of Africa’s most celebrated poets and political activists, Dennis Brutus, died early this morning in Cape Town. Throughout his life Dennis spoke against injustice in South Africa and beyond.

Below Dennis speaks on reparations from corporations that benefited from Apartheid. In very typical Brutus fashion, he makes the links between reparations in South Africa with reparations for slavery in the US.
