In 1960 after she denounced the apartheid system, singer Miriam Makeba’s music was banned and she was exiled from South Africa – the land of her birth – for nearly 30 years. (And when she married activist Stokely Carmichael – Kwame Turé in 1968, she was banished from the United States.) She became an inspiring ambassador for South African culture, African liberation and Black pride. This first ever documentary biography of Makeba features interviews with her, those she inspired and such contemporaries as Hugh Masekela and most notably some of the electrifying performances from her 50 year career.
