Hearing Visions Seeing Voices PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hearing Visions Seeing Voices free pdf Hearing Visions Seeing Voices is a very personal testimony of a life centred on helping women and men to understand the violence in their lives and around them, and how Mmatshilo has drawn strength and inspiration from her ancestors - from the spirits of Queen Modjadji, Ambuya Nehanda who led the Shona war of liberation, and Me Katilili, a Kenyan organiser against forced labour in the early 1900s. Mmatshilo says: "Indeed we come from a long line of women ancestors. A return to their legacy requires learning to decipher the language of the Soul." A recipient of the United Nations Scroll of Honour Award in 2000 and the International Human Rights Award from Human Rights Watch in New York, Mmatshilo Motsei began her working life as a nurse and midwife.
