On 29 April 1972, Onkgopotse Abram Tiro made one of the most consequential revolutionary addresses in South African history. Tiro’s anti-apartheid speech saw him and many of his fellow student activists expelled, igniting a series of strikes in tertiary institutions across the country. By the time he went into exile in Botswana, Tiro was president of the Southern African Student Movement (SASM), permanent organiser of the South African Student Organisation (SASO) and a leading Black Consciousness proponent. Parcel of Death uses exclusive interviews to highlight significant influences and periods in Tiro’s life. It is a compelling portrait of his story and its lasting significance in South Africa’s history.
