Event Details:

Journalist, photographer and humanist, Greg Marinovich, played an early and important role in exposing the truth of how thirty-four miners were killed and seventy-nine others injured by the police on an empty stretch of veld (grassland) outside Marikana in the late afternoon of August 16, 2012.

In this compelling book, [Marinovich] details how the violence of the police, the failure of the mining houses to provide decent working conditions, the government's dereliction of its constitutional duties and trade union enmity conspired in a massacre that violated our constitution, the administration of justice, and the rule of law. __George Bizos, human rights activist

Greg Marinovic is a Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, author, and filmmaker. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University and teaches visual journalism at Boston University and Harvard University.
