Mother to Mother is a one-woman play by Sindiwe Magona (which is based her 1998 novel by the same name). Mother to Mother is about the killing of Amy Biehl, an American Fulbright scholar by a mob of students when she drove into the township of Guguletu on the eve of the South Africa’s independence election. Told from the perspective of the mother of one of the boys accused of her death, the play takes the form of an epistolary from the mother one of the mob youths to the mother of Amy Biehl.

The November 13 date is a special fundraiser for Africa Atlanta, with a private reception at 6:30 and a talk back with Sindiwe Magona at 8:30 following the show. Curtain time for both dates is 7:30 p.m.

This event is part of Africa Atlanta 2014 which is organized by the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts and the Consulate General of Belgium in Atlanta, and the Africa Atlanta 2014 partners.
