  2. A world traveller. A woman with many talents, very charismatic, a poet, a progressive activist promoting Social Justice, Workers’ Rights, Human Rights and equality for all.

    It is my pleasure to be part of her life.

  3. I read the poem penned by you, it is really touching and vivid in it’s ability to relive that moment etched in creative canvas !! Keep it up !!!

  4. ma belle Salimah, ton poème Toast me touche, non, il me heurte, en faisant remuer au creux de mon ventre toute la violence et l’horreur qu’il m’a fallu absorber pendant les années que j’ai passées à Joburg … continue de dire, tu rappelle ces souvenirs et m’inspire à continuer d’agir!

  10. Hi Salimah,

    We’ve not been in touch for probably about 15 years or so . . . I currently reside in California as an English professor, and am taking a sabbatical to work on my memoir. I was delighted to look you up on the net and see the wonderful, important work you’ve been up to. You were always an inspiration to me! Enjoyed your interview on YouTube (very informative), and look forward to getting a copy of your poetry book.
