BBC Storyville 2012 The Queen of Africa The Miriam Makeba Story

Looks at the life of South African singer and civil rights activist Miriam Makeba. Forced into a life of exile for exposing the harsh realities of apartheid, Makeba was the first African musician to win international stardom.

Always anchored in her traditional South African roots, Makeba’s music delivered messages against racism and poverty. Exposing a tumultuous life – Makeba married South African musician Hugh Masekela and Black Panther Stokely Carmichael – this film traces her life and music using rare archive of performances, interviews and intimate scenes.
