Twenty years after our democracy was attained, the question still remains, why would the Frontline States put themselves in harm’s way, for some thirty years, to help bring democracy to South Africa?

Rainbow Makers goes straight to the source, to the former leaders themselves, to unearth their accounts of the extraordinary alliance known as The Frontline States. Shaka Sisulu, our story’s narrator, is a child born in exile and familiar with the stories, myths, and legends told by his grandfather Walter, his grandmother Albertina, his father Max and his Aunt, Lindiwe. Shaka’s personal memories and the family stories passed down, from generation to generation contextualises what the solidarity was all about, and what the liberation movement means to the youth of today.
