Patric Tariq Mellet on a radically new perspective on the South African land question

Heritage activist and historical theory disruptor, Patric Tariq Mellet has written a radically new perspective on the South African land question by specifically looking at the 176 years of San/Khoe colonial resistance, in which he debunks established pre­-colonial and colonial land dispossession history. Mellet presents a novel perspective on ‘colouredness’ and a topical new perspective on the burning issue of land – and how it was lost.

He recounts the forced and voluntary migration to the Cape by Africans, Indians, Southeast Asians, Europeans and the African Diaspora.

Mellet is an influential blogger and is Cape Talk’s resident history analyst.  He is a member of the Governance Council of the South African Heritage Resource Agency. He is an MK veteran, having established the ANC ‘liberation printing press’ in exile to disseminate information.

His new book, The Lie of 1652 will be available.  He will take questions.
