Black people imagining themselves into existence

On Saturday Tseliso Monaheng decided to head down south to Soweto to check out the inaugural Abantu Book Festival, an initiative founded by Thando Mgqolozana and curated by Panashe Chigumadzi. To say it was lit would be a gross understatement. The topics on panels and the temperatures matched, while the film screening and poetry sessions added the pressure to further ignite a revelation in progress. People came from all across Johannesburg to take it all in. These are snapshots from Eyethu Lifestyle Centre in Soweto.
