#258 ~ Ithemba Projects: Day 23

As promised, below is the link to the Ithemba Projects Facebook Page. On it is the video of the Grade 10’s and 11’s reading some of their poetry. It’s been an incredible journey, getting the children to write their own work and perform it. Although I think poetry and performance are a strong part of Zulu culture, writing in another language has been a challenge which they have expertly conquered. Today we worked on rhyme schemes and rhythms, and next week, each of the classes will write and perform a class poem/rap. So watch this space.

For now, enjoy the video and please Like the Ithemba Projects Facebook page. They do incredible work, which this video is a testament to.

With gratitude: Death of the Writer
