I had the luck to see Brutus read a few times in Pittsburgh. Things suddenly got very serious when he took the stage, as if the poets who read before him were jesters warming up the crowd for the main event. (No dis on the other poets, I just mean he had a real presence, a gravitas as they say.)

thought you & your readers might be interested in a new documentary, Fair Play, which tells the story of the anti-apartheid movement sports boycotts Brutus played such a key role in. Here’s a trailer:http://activevoice.net/haveyouheard_fairplay.html

I've never heard of that film ... thanks so much for pointing us to it!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
