Dateline Soweto

by William Finnegan

Dateline Soweto Synopsis

Dateline Soweto documents the working lives of black South African reporters caught between the mistrust of militant blacks, police harassment, and white editors who - fearing government disapproval - may not print the stories these reporters risk their lives to get. William Finnegan revisited several of these reporters during the May 1994 election and describes their post-apartheid working experience in a new preface and epilogue.
