An unforgettable portrait of Miriam Makeba (1932-2008), the world-famous South African artist and civil rights activist, who devoted her life to promoting peace and justice and fighting racism around the planet. Her music and daily practice incarnated the hopes and fears of Africa through the convulsive 20th century. She was considered the voice and mother of the Continent.
