Remembering Vilakazi Street

Happy birthday, Madiba! In celebration of Nelson Mandela Day, we share four of Alf Kumalo’s remarkable images from 8115: A Prisoner’s Home. With captions co-authored by Zukiswa Wanner and Alf Kumalo, the book documents time spent by the Mandela family at their unassuming little house at 8115 Vilakazi Street in Soweto. First published by Penguin in 2010, a new paperback version has just been released. Click on the pages below to enlarge them.
