"Radical Solidarity: A reader brings together the ideas and projects of some of the world’s most active and inspiring radical thinkers, artists and activists committed to fostering the arts from Africa and its diaspora. The publication emerges from the proceedings of the Radical Solidarity Summit, a week-long online gathering hosted by Zeitz MOCAA in September 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the intention to not only address the urgent issues of this moment, but to explore the alternative futures, and possibilities that can be forged in the cultural field through acts of radical solidarity."

Contributions include the essays, "Conversations Beyond Jousting, Museums Without Frontiers" by Albie Sachs; extracts from Infinite Riches by Ben Okri, The Exploded View by Ivan Vladislaviċ and Green as the Sky Is Blue by Eben Venter, and graphic recordings by Abdul Dube.

Dialogues include:

"Solidarity: Historic contexts of Pan-Africanism and the Transnational Struggle" with Achille Mbembe and Albie Sachs (moderated by Koyo Kouoh)

"Urban Imaginaries, Mobilities and Why So Many Borders" with Edgar Pieterse, Mpho Matsipa, Tan Tavengwa and Emeka Okereke (moderated by Storm Janse van Rensburg)

"Mother I Am Suffocating. This Is My Last Film About You" with Lemohang Jeremiah Moses and Phokeng Tshepo Setai.
