In August 1993, Fulbright scholar Amy Biehl was killed in Cape Town by a group of black youths incited by an upsurge of ‘anti-white’ sloganeering. Mother to Mother was provoked by the tragedy. The killer’s mother addresses the mother of the victim and tries, through speaking to her pain, to gain an understanding of her son by recalling both his life and hers within a world of apartheid. The graphic account of life and culture in a black township during the apartheid years is both poignant and at the same time, in Sindiwe Magona’s vibrant, extremely lively style.
