This Land Is Mine: South African Freedom Songs

Recorded by South African refugees, This Land Is Mine: South African Freedom Songs unites people of all races in the struggle for a South Africa free from apartheid. First composed in the 1950s in conjunction with the South African Liberation Movement, the songs express “the aspirations and above all the fighting spirit of South Africa’s freedom fighters.” The music stands as a tribute to Vuyisile Mini, Zinakele Nkaba, and Wilson Khayingo, three African National Congress members and freedom fighters who were among the first to have been executed under the apartheid system.
