Additional Book Details

'The temerity of writing one's biography needs to be explained. It is a foolish act by any description. Why make oneself so vulnerable?

I have reasons to tell my story. It is a story of loss, and storytelling is part of the struggle to transcend loss. It is also imperative in our deeply wounded society. The past cannot be undone: it has to be transcended.'

When Mamphela Ramphele was born in a rural village in Limpopo, few would have predicted that she would become not only a medical doctor, but an acclaimed author, academic and business leader, prominent in two political movements: Black Consciousness in the 1970s and Agang SA in 2013. This book charts the incredible story of a woman who, despite detention, banishment, and the loss of the father of her unborn child to police torture, never gave up expanding the bounds of the possible.
