Keorapetse Kgositsile (born 1938 in Johannesburg, South Africa) is not only a poet and political activist, but was also one of the first members of the African National Congress (ANC) in the 1960s and 70s. From 1962 to 1975 he lived in exile in the USA. As a central figure among African-American poets, he was instrumental in bringing Africa into the limelight in the 1970s, as well as gaining much attention for poetry as performance. He was one of the first to overcome the gulf between African poetry and Black poetry in the USA, thus becoming one of the most important poets in the Pan-African movement. The video is showing a reading he did at poetry festival Berlin 2009, organized by Literaturwerkstatt Berlin
