For more than two decades Thandi Chimurenga has been a journalist of the people, an unswerving voice for Black liberation and uncompromising enemy of patriarchy, class power, racism, and militarism.

It reminds us that the most expansive vision of freedom can be found in the collective voices of Black women.
