To open the hearts of South Africans to our past, so that we may use our story no longer as a tool to inspire hatred and fear and division, but rather as a source of unity and healing.
Accordingly, his idea was to condense the epic narrative of our country into a bite-size story which is both compelling and accurate. A monumental and time-consuming challenge, but one which has given rise to a very unique product, providing new order and meaning to a notoriously complex subject.
But importantly, this is no history lecture. Instead, this is a story. A human story told by climbing into the boots of five prominent, interwoven, protagonists spanning two hundred turbulent years: Mzilikazi, Kruger, Rhodes, Smuts and Mandela. Never before has our past been explored in this manner.
Michael’s passion saw him leave behind the life of a Chartered Accountant in order to make this project happen. This passion shines through in his delivery. For this is a unique life experience: An opportunity to reflect on our past and to
celebrate the fascinating peoples with whom we share this beautiful country.
