O’MANDINGO! (article first published : 2006-03-19)

Jacana Media presents a first published work by Eric Miyeni during the forthcoming Time of the Writer Festival.

O’Mandingo! The only black at a dinner party is a collection of opinion pieces on contemporary issues in South Africa today, originally presented on the O’Mandingo website from 2001 to 2004.

At the centre of this seemingly disparate collection of thoughts is one theme: black pride, strength, unity and prosperity.

O’Mandingo began as a response to a negative take on a black person by a black person. The word O’Mandingo represents unity across Africa and is a visual embodiment of the “O” from Zulu, and the Mandika’s (the warrior people of West Africa) who gave us the musical instrument, the kora.

Eric Miyeni is an actor, ex-talk show host (the current Vuyo Mbuli show weekdays at 09h00 on SAFM) and creative director of the communications company, Chillibush.

O’Mandingo! The only black at a dinner party will be launched at 18h45 on March 24 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
