Dennis Brutus RIP

I was really saddened to hear of the death last week of Dennis Brutus.

There will come a time
There will come a time we believe
When the shape of the planet
and the divisions of the land
Will be less important;
We will be caught in a glow of friendship
a red star of hope
will illuminate our lives
A star of hope
A star of joy
A star of freedom

An excellent obituary in the Independent. Dennis Brutus: Activist whose efforts helped bring about the end of apartheid
