Climbing Higher is a literary biography of Sindiwe Magona, a significant black South African woman, whose writings act as a testimony, a historical record, an appeal, and an invitation to experience a culture, literary style and language marginalized by colonization. The book also intends to show that Magona’s works provide us with a window to the soul of the beleaguered domestic (Living, Loving and Lying Awake at Night), the impoverished single parent (To My Children’s Children), the struggling black woman educator and activist (Forced to Grow), the anguished mother (Mother to Mother), the rape victim, the successful African professional woman battling cultural and patriarchal sexual restrictions that may result in AIDS infection, female subjective states relevant to both the old and new South Africa.
