Based on the controversial but popular e-zine, this collection of opinion pieces and essays analyzes current topics facing postapartheid South Africa; including black economic empowerment, affirmative action, race, poverty, and affluence, while also touching on such lighter topics as sports, movies, love, and friendship. Black pride, strength, unity, and prosperity are central themes in these articles, creating a unique picture of the current South African black consciousness movement.

Review: O'Mandingo!: The Only Black at a Dinner Party

User Review  - Sharon Kamau - Goodreads

Book is funny, interesting and informative. Very candid about issues facing Black South Africa. Reminds me of Ngugi wa Thiongo somehow. You know, the way he helps the reader to see everyday activities in the minds of extraordinary people. A definite must read. Read full review
