Nkosi’s book offers a unique understanding of the intersection between land, labour, dispossession and violence experienced on South Africa’s farmlands by Black South Africans from the apartheid period to the present.

Please join author Mbuso Nkosi with sociologist Dineo Skosana and Yvonne Phyllis, co-director of The Forge as they discuss new understandings of the meaning of land and the repercussions of dispossession.
