Mkhuseli Khusta Jack
Until then, I had thought that where we lived and where my mother worked in the fields was our land. I had no idea that there was a white owner – a boss of our lives.

The young Khusta had a fierce yearning to go to school. Meeting obstacles at every turn, he never gave up. Reaching high school in Port Elizabeth, against all the odds, his drive finds a new focus: freedom for his people.
Through fiery years of activism, his resolve never wavered. Khusta Jack became a respected leader in the democratic movement. Today, as a successful businessman, he is as outspoken as always.
A true story of sacrifice, courage and triumph.
