Rest In Peace, Jerry Masoleng

I found out today that my friend, the artist Jerry Masoleng, was murdered last Saturday night. This was a man who worked for the Trevor Huddleston Memorial Centre in Sophiatown, who taught kids literacy and art, whose artistic abilities were absolutely incredible. And he was killed by a bunch of thugs. I am so goddamn sick of having friends and relatives injured, or killed by the out-of-control Johannesburg crime. It's sickening.

Please take a look at the centre's website. It's a remarkable institution with a fantastic mission. It was lucky to have someone like Jerry working for it.

You bet - check out

They're the best about shipping to the United States.

Some of the artists are gonna be easier to find than others on this site, but you should have some pretty good luck - Mankunku is the easiest to find.

Also, if they don't have a specific album you're looking for, they're REALLY good about ordering it for you...
