See the Noose, Say their Names: Phyllis Naidoo’s Waiting to Die in Pretoria (1990)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

This essay reads Phyllis Naidoo's 1990 Waiting to Die in Pretoria as a radical requiem for Black death under apartheid. Naidoo builds her case against the death penalty through a roll of Black death row inmates that anticipates contemporary racial crises with an uncanny feel for the trauma of white supremacist violence.
