A brief summary of Miram Makeba’s life, art, and work for social and racial justice…

Miram Makeba is one of those transformative artists whose vision transcends the world of her art and career. Through her music and her personality, we encounter the expansive possibilities of the human heart when it is fully applied to the struggling world.

Do yourself a favor and track down more of her music.
