The seventh volume is a collection of the strongest entries for the 2017 Sol Plaatje European Union Poetry Award. This edition of the anthology continues the legacy of social and political activist, intellectual giant and writer Solomon Tshekisho Plaatje (1876–1932).The anthology is a truly democratic as well as creative effort. The poems offer readers sensibilities, observations and responses to the complex, nuanced and uncomfortable realities of life in our country – past, present and future. Written in Afrikaans, English, Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, isiXhosa and isiZulu, and accompanied by English translations where relevant, they reflect the diversity of our nation.“There is a silent scream in all the poems. There is a resilience. There is a demand, a plea. The poems do not stop; they are relentless...” – Dr Mongane Wally SeroteThese poems are a reflection and exploration of our humanity, of how it manifests itself – or doesn't – in our society. They are a call for us to do better, to be human again.The winning poem will be announced at a private launch at the Nirox WORDS 2017 Festival on 21 October.
