Shirley Gunn & Shanil Haricharan – Giving ‘Voices from the Underground’ a proper hearing

In three short years between 1987 and 1990 the Ashley Kriel Detachment conducted a host of operations that helped bring about the fall of the unjust apartheid system. Twenty years later, 18 members of the AKD speak out about their often shocking and traumatic experiences. Through a series of sensitive interviews, in this book Gunn and Haricharan give them the opportunity to relive and reflect on that eventful time.

Book Stories People is a podcast for people with an appetite for the story behind the story. Whether a book, a play, a movie, poem, song, a blog – or even a tweet, there’s always a back story – more to it than meets the eye. Or the ear. And that’s often where the gold lies. So that’s what I hope to bring you on BSP, the less well-trumpeted tales, the inside intel – from wordsmiths of all disciplines – known, unknown celebrity or completely unheard of. And who am I? You might well ask. Just an independent journalist from the tip of Africa with an appetite for stories that matches your own. Nancy Richards, yours in stories.
