More about the book!
Join Jonathan Ball Publishers and Book Circle Capital for the launch of The Man Who Shook Mountains: In the Footsteps of My Ancestors by Lesley Mofokeng!
Mofokeng will be in conversation with Sewela Langeni at the launch.
‘This is a South African story of an unsung hero, a man forgotten by history – though not by me, or by the people who knew and respected him …’
When his grandfather gave sermons, he was ‘capable of shaking mountains’, a church elder tells journalist and author Lesley Mofokeng. ‘Ntate Mofokeng pulled people towards God with the great and rare talent of a motivator.’
In this revealing book, Mofokeng investigates the life of his grandfather, Mongangane Wilfred Mofokeng, a prominent Dutch Reformed Church evangelist. As Black South Africans were being evicted in the 1950s from the cities to live in reserves and homelands, Mongangane set out to build a community at a dusty cattle post in the far North West province.
