Zwelethu: Our Land is a memoir by Jaki Stone Seroke, poet, publisher and freedom fighter.
"Zwelethu" is both Seroke's nickname and a salutation by PAC members, referring to "Our Land". The book tells of how Seroke grew up in the oldest township in Johannesburg, Alexandra. Seroke's family was forcibly removed to Tembisa under apartheid legislation.
These townships shaped Seroke's political consciousness. It was a violent society, but it led to an understanding of the material conditions of black people. There was no stable income in the family.
