DOES A GREAT JOB OF BRINGING MAKEBA’S JOY TO A WIDER AUDIENCE. --Eye for Film

An unforgettable portrait of Miriam Makeba (1932-2008), the world-famous South African singer and civil rights activist, who devoted her life to promoting peace and justice and fighting racism around the planet. A figurehead of the Black African movement in exile, her music and daily practice incarnated the hopes and fears of Africa through the convulsive 20th century. –OkayAfrica   

Miriam Makeba's powerful voice—as a singer and activist—takes centre stage in this stirring tribute. Archival footage and fascinating interviews (Harry Belafonte, Stokely Carmichael, Hugh Masekela, Paul Simon, Angélique Kidjo and many others) shed light on the legend whose songs won hearts while her politics courted controversy. –VIFF 

She was the first black woman to speak at the United Nations and gained her nickname "Mama Africa" for the way she brought together the African continent. Hollywood Reporter
Cast Miriam Makeba, Bageot Bah, Harry Belafonte
