South African singer Miriam Makeba (1932-2008) spent half a century travelling the world to spread her message to fight racism, poverty and promote justice and peace. Forced into exile in 1959, Harry Belafonte helped her gain entry to the United States. In 1968, she settled in Guinea where she continued to fight the white Apartheid regime in her native land. This film portrays Makeba’s life and music and includes interviews with friends, relatives and colleagues.
