  1. Powerful discussion as usual. What is the reference for the Baldwin quote and is there a release date for Dr. Wilderson’s forthcoming book?

  2. It would have been nice to hear Dr. Wildersons view on Robert Sobukwes break from the ANC over his displeasure with the Freedom Charter & whether or not Hani & MK engaged in violence against the Pan African Congress? One has to wonder if one of Hani’s body guards was an agent provocateur. Great interview.
