Unboxing ‘Somnyama Ngonyama: Hail the Dark Lioness’

Video (9:16): James Cockroft unboxes the book ‘Somnyama Ngonyama: Hail the Dark Lioness‘ by queer photographer Zanele Muholi. And he writes, ‘Somnyama Ngonyama: Hail the Dark Lioness is an incredible collection of self portraits from Zanele Muholi. The photographs are powerful, funny, confrontational, and incredibly fierce, and I love it.’
