It is befitting that we celebrate John Langalibalele Dube, well known as Mafukuzela, J L Dube, a leader, priest, journalist, teacher, scholar, author and the first president of the African National Congress, a man who fought tirelessly for the education of a black child and for freedom of all Africans.  

Mafukuzela- Songs of Freedom is a narrative concert celebrating South Africa’s heritage through honouring the people who contributed in the liberation struggle that led to freedom of the oppressed, and taking theatre to the people.
