Poet, painter and film-maker, Barry Feinberg, won acclaim for his work abroad, which helped to galvanize international opposition to the apartheid government. He was one of the founding members of Mayibuye, an extremely successful ANC music and poetry performance ensemble. He also headed up the information division of the International Defence and Aid Fund (IDAF), which, under his leadership, became an invaluable resource for the liberation movement.
Time to Tell is a highly readable – often dramatically revealing – memoir of Feinberg’s 45 years of activism travel, relationships and creative expression. While the twin narratives of personal and political context are equally absorbing on their own, it is the relationship between the two, and the story of this relationship’s expression through Feinberg’s pen, brush and lens, that provide a unique and compelling perspective on those most significant and volatile decades in South Africa’s history.
