The World of Nat Nakasa


Nat Nakasa was born in Durban on 12 May 1937. He worked as a journalist in Johannesburg writing for Drum and Golden City Post. He eventually became the first black journalist at the Rand Daily Mail. In 1964 he left South Africa on an exit permit, after being refused a passport, to take up a Nieman Fellowship to study journalism at Harvard University. On July 1965 he committed suicide in New York at the age of 28.Nakasa wrote: ‘I may shut up for some time because of fear. Yet even this will not make me feel ashamed. For I know that as long as the ideas remain unchanged within me, there will always be the possibility that, one day, I shall burst out and say everything that I wish to sayin a loud and thunderous voice.’ In this collection of some of the finest writings by Nat Nakasa, that loud and thunderous voice speaks with such clarity and insight as to create a book that has been read and reread since its first appearance in 1975.
