[re]claiming revolutionary musings

31 notes

…Nehanda is rightfully honored by the Shona people as a resistance heroine. Her fortitude both before and after her arrest is remarkable, it played a critical part in Zimbabwean History. Her heroism became a significant source of inspiration in the nationalist struggle for liberation in the 1960s and 1970s. Her name is now usually prefixed by the respectful title of Mbuya. The main maternity hospital in Harare is name after her as well as several main streets in Zimbabwe. (where i was born!)
