Launch – Pride and Prejudice: African Perspectives on Gender, Social Justice and Sexuality

Pride and Prejudice: The Gerald Kraak Anthology African Perspectives on Gender, Social Justice and Sexuality

    The Other Foundation and the Jacana Literary Foundation invite you to be our guest at the presentation of the inaugural Gerald Kraak Prize and the launch of Pride and Prejudice, the inaugural edition of the Gerald Kraak Anthology of African Perspectives on Gender, Social Justice, and Sexuality. RSVP by Thursday, 25 May at 12PM.

    Pride and Prejudice is a collection of the short-listed entries to the inaugural award, named after Gerald Kraak (1956–2014), who was a passionate champion of social justice and an anti-apartheid activist.

    “This book is a shelter, a place where slums are not art, they are simply where we live. It’s a place where albinos are not unicorns, they are only beautiful and ordinary. And it’s a place where gays are pained and also completely conventional. In this book, strange choppers fly and Africa is a landscape not simply for the past but for projections of the future,” says Sisonke Msimang, Editor in Chief and Head Judge.

    The Gerald Kraak Award is a joint initiative between The Other Foundation and the Jacana Literary Foundation.

    A judging panel made up of distinguished gender activist Sisonke Msimang, prominent social and political analyst Eusebius McKaiser and leading African feminist Sylvia Tamale selected thirteen finalists.
