I suggest that the New Black Poetry of the Seventies in South Africa or, as it is also known, Soweto Poetry retains significance 50 years after it initially began to appear in print and on the platform. To grant substance to my claim, I return the poetry to the purpose of its time (in political crisis), then reflect on its contribution to post-apartheid times.
