Poems by Michael Weeder, Dean of St. George's Cathedral, Cape Town.

"Michael Weeder's The Promise of Memory is an education in expansive love and historical consciousness. The poems cross boundaries of race, gender and creed to teach us what a politics of emancipatory possibility entails and demands an ethics of accountability." Khamita Mohamed, author of Called to Song

"Looking back, looking forward, all the false certitudes of racialised identity get stirred around in this poetic bredie. It affirms who we might all be. Michael Weeder provides a voice needed in a time 'when freedom still ain't free'". Jeremy Cronin, author of Inside and Out and More Than A Casual Contact
