The Activist Files

The Activist Files is a podcast by the Center for Constitutional Rights where we feature the stories of people on the front lines fighting for justice, including activists, lawyers, and artists. We interview movement partners, our clients, and people using storytelling to create change, and look to highlight lesser known aspects of the work.

The Activist Files Episode 8: Under the Shadow of Death

On the eighth episode of The Activist Files, Center for Constitutional Rights Advocacy Program Manager Nahal Zamani speaks with S’bu Zikode, a founding member and president of Abahlali baseMjondolo, the shack dwellers’ movement in South Africa. S’bu is one of the leaders of Abahlali baseMjondolo, one of the largest peoples’ movements to emerge in post-apartheid South Africa. S’bu talks to Nahal about what is at stake, how the movement rises above violent repression, and what the U.S. can learn from South Africa in this political moment. Listen to one of the most inspiring activists we know and work with.
