Summary. Today, 08/06 we saw at the poetry class the African Poets. Two of them are Gcina Mhlophe and Wole Sayinka. I will talk a little bit about the first one. She is from the South Africa and was born in 1959. She has a huge bibliography and appeared in many documentaries and was also indicated to some awards. She is a “freedom fighter, activist, poet, author, storyteller, and other things. She is one of the few women that have “power”, at least by writing, over some dominate men. Her poetry is made to the development of the country, to help people to grow in some way, help the children to read. She uses to tell her stories in four different languages, and one of them is English.
